    I have the same problems with the same Magellan model 4040. I was told to order a new home charger and see if that work. But I think the car charger damaged the unit.

I had this problem. I fixed it myself. The gold connector inside where you plug the charger in was not making contact so it would not charge the battery. I opened my gps and with a small screw driver i pushed the gold connector out so it would make contact with the charger. It works great now. I found this out after buying new car charger, home charger and battery and it still would not charge.

My GPS screen says "USB Connected" whenever the


your cord has a short in it. Try to fix it or buy another.
That happened with my Magellan last month when the silver square connector started coming out of the cord. Try pushing it back in, but they do short out there at the connector for some reason

I've had a Magellan Maestro 3225 for about a year or so (bought new from Costco). Over the past several months, when I turn the unit on and program a destination, the unit still seems to think it is in the...


There are two batteries inside the unit. One is the main power and the other is a small coin cell usually a BR2032 worth maybe ~$1 When this small battery goes the unit gets somewhat senile and forgets where it is. So it has to download all of the sattelite data and figure it out which can take up to an hour. The small battery is used to keep the memory and setting alive.

Your problem is finding a shop to replace it or sending it into Magellan. If you go to Magellans website and call your local support number they can give you the cost for them to do it. They also have a refurishment program where you pay a set fee and they send you a new or refurbished unit.

Gps will not turn on


make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails


the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000 and the 4050 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...i sell these power ports and will repair them for anyone thats not able to do it them selves
you can email me through here or email to.... wmetz@comcast.net
