Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I attempted an update to the map software version 2.62 or 3.61 Rel1. Something went wrong and the unit will now power on but only to the blue screen with Magellan logo and the black bar on the bottom. I foolishly did not back up first. I have another 4040 that i have tried to copy files from to this unit. It will then function fully except, the map will not initiate. I get the error: insert SD card with map. Can this problem be fixed or is it a useless unit now?

Run the update again..if it wont take it or wont see the 4040, it gets a little hairy to get them running again, but it can be done.



i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

Here is a hint to check the map in your unit to see if they are the newer version.

Click on the Tools icon, then "Settings", next "Map", and last click on the Map Info button. Your map version is listed here. If it is not the same as the version of the update try running the update again.

Problem with PCM Navigation


Hi I have a 2006 Caymans S and have exactly the same problem, everything works except the Sat Nav!

In the navigation option menu, it lists 0 satellites being picked up

The dealer looked at it today and replaced the GPS antenna, but didnt fix it. They too mentioned about a new unit...

I will post if I solve it, but if you find out what is wrong I would really like to hear about it.

More than most do.
Make sure you have the latest nuvi "Firmware"
then update the maps. I would start with making sure you have the latest WebUpdater on your computer before you proceed with any updates.

If a nuvi 200 is has an older version of system software glitches may occur. The device may be missing letters or have jumbled letters or displaying duplicate letters or strange symbols on the address screen. To correct this you will need to update the system software of your nuvi. You can easily do this by using Garmin’s WebUpdater program:
  1. Click the following link to download the WebUpdater program: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen prompts from the website
  3. Choose RUN/OPEN
  4. Follow the on screen prompts
After the program has been installed it should run automatically. If it does not please use the steps below.
To run WebUpdater:
  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs and find the Garmin folder
  2. Click WebUpdater
  3. Connect your nuvi to an available USB port on your computer
  4. To search for an available update, choose NEXT
  5. As the program automatically finds updates, choose NEXT to load the update. Once the update is complete, you can search for other updates such as voice languages, Bluetooth, and Traffic Receiver.
  6. Disconnect the unit to ensure it powers on.
Take your unit outdoors and keep it in a stationary position with an open sky view until it reacquires satellites.

Maestro 3250 Charging


I accidentally ran into this problem today when I inadvertantly plugged the wrong charger into the unit. I'm guessing that the device isn't getting the precise current it's expecting and thus thinks it's plugged into a computer. I'd suggest getting hold of a different charger and see if the problem goes away.
