Open Question

My Magellan Maestro 4370 GPS freezes on boot-up with the Magellan logo and spinning dial. Do you know if this just needs a software upgrade or whether it has other problems? Thank you.

SOURCE: Need Set-up CD Magellan Maestro 3250

let me say this 1st because this will be the easy way to fix this assuming you tried to either run the update or ran it again after the failure. if thats the case.

im going to assume you tried to update your unit to the 4.46 update that you downloaded off the magellan site,HERE ( if you havent, i suggest you do it before continuing) and in doing so it bricked your unit.

Magellan Will repair or replace any of there gps sytems that were rendered inoperative due to their updates. they will check your account to see if you downloaded the update.

  • register your unit on magellangps.com if you havent already
  • download the update
  • attempt to install update on your computer
  • call magellan tell them your unit is not booting up after the update

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT
Telephone: 800 707 9971

hopefully you understand what im saying here.

should you decide to take a different route, let me know and i will help you get it up and running if possible.

Once I updated my Magellan Maestro 4250 the beginning Magellan screen comes on & the bar at the bottom advances like its loading then it stops and freezes. I've tried reseting it without success...


Try re booting, turn off like normal, then when you go to turn it on, hold power button down all the way through the start up, and 15 seconds more than release the on button, now it's rebooted, see if that helps, let me know.

Maestro 4010 screen freezes up when first button pressed. Switch off and restarted but does the same each time.. Where do I get the software to update ?


there is no updates for the magellan 4010 at this time. if you havent tried the reset (little pinhole on the left side) i suggest you try that 1st.

power on your 4010 and after it boots up, use a paper clip to depress the reset switch and let it reboot. that may or may not fix it, because you could have a bad digitizer (the touch part of the lcd)

let me know how you make out.

Replacing the battery in a magellan maestro 4370


thats a fairly new unit and i doubt if the battery is shot already. it could be, but verify that is shot.

1st verify that its charging. hook up the home or car charger, then go into the main menu, then options, then power options and see if the battery indicator is moving left to right..if it is, its charging. if its not moving and shows a low battery, then its not charging.

if the meter is fully green and shouts off when unplugged form power, i would disconnect the battery then hook it back up and check the charging again

let me know if you still need to replace the battery and ill find you one and tell you how to replace it.

No a practical solution, but at least you will get your device repair, after being on hold for 40 minutes I spoke to a very nice rep, unfortunately evethough she didn't admit it, it seems a software problem with the new 2008/2009 map update, in other words no way to fix it, you need to send it for repair, make sure you tell them to update the device with the new 2008/2009 Maps, if not you will have the same problem later on, Good Luck
