Although, the performance on this GPS was slow it was all the same
functional and then all of a sudden I am receiving the following
message: PLEASE INSERT THE SYSTEM SD CARD TO CONTINUE, even though the
card is in. I cannot access the navigation part at all. I thought
perhaps the SD card was corrupted so I purchased another one and
reinstalled the maps, but I still received the same message. Everything
else on the menu seems to function, i.e. tools, pics, etc. Can you help
me? I am ready to throw it out.
Well that stinks I had a brite blank screen and I opened it up and fixxed it but not for everyone to fix I need the dvd or card do you have the dvd as you may need to install the system software on the cards also

You need a standard SD digital memory card (not the newer HC high capacity cards as Magellan does not guarantee compatibility although I did get one to work that was a micro SD card with the full SD adapter). You will need to put your mp3 music files from your PC onto the SD card just as you would your mp3 player; insert the SD card into an SD slot on your computer, laptop or USB adapter and copy the files to the card. After files are saved, put the card into the slot on the right side of the Maestro and then refer to the User Manual (http://www.magellangps.com/support/product.asp) page 64 to see how to play the music. You can play through radio speakers or by using headphones/ear buds with a USB connector.
Try to fix the sd card with some recovery software (recuva or similar) and transfer the data to a new card. If you have the installation disk, use that to copy the data to a new card. Do not use the corrupted card, since you might lock up the device for good.
A way around this is to insert the SD Card into the computer (SD Card reader), point the directory to the card and install the maps like that. I had to do that the first time I bought my unit because I couldn't figure it out and got frustrated. So I thought of this easy work-around.
