Question about GPS

4 Answers

Hi, I purchased a model 3100 maestro from Radioshack last 11/23/07 just about 31/2 mos. Last time I used it was december. I try to use it this friday and doesn't work, so I let it charged in the car for the time I've been driving. Yesterday, saturday I try to use it again but nothing happened. I went to the store they try something and they said to go to your web and here Iam. How are you going to resolve this issue? Thanks. MATT E.

I bought a new Nikon D3100 last December 26, 2010. However, last December 31, 2010, the built-in flash won't work anymore. I tried to switch on the flash, tired other settings, remove the battery, etc but...


I agree that 6 days is a very short life span for the flash. Your camera is defective and you should take advantage of the warranty since it's probably too late to return it.

Bricked my maestro 3100 tryign to do an upgrade. need recovery files. where can i find a free download? thanks


hi semorrison1

if you where trying to install the 2.18 update for the 3100, try running the update again if your
pc still sees your 3100. if it doesnt see it, it becomes alot more difficult to restore.



let me know if you need more help or info

Like a lot of people, I tried to update my Magellan Maestro 3100 on Windows Vista. It didn't work and my GPS is now unusable... all of the files were deleted. Anyone have the files backed up?


hi superbman

i have the files, but fixya wont let me give them to you (we are not allowed to contact the customers)....but if your computer see your 3100, you wont need them..just run the update again and wait till its done (it takes a while, the update is huge and takes about 30 minutes)...

if it doesnt work, Magellan will repair or replace any of their gps that were render inoperable due to one of their updates..
