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

You probably just need to reset it.
Magellan Maestro models- the location of reset button is on the left, right, or bottom side inside a small hole. Use an object to apply pressure to depress the reset button. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.
You may need to update your firmware. Go to this site
http://www.magellangps.com/support/
select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section.

This should solve the problem. Good luck. If this helps, plz rate it fixa. Thank you kindly.

Magellan maestro 3100 failed update


go to Tech support at www.magellamgps.com tell them what has transpired and ask for 2.18 Update Recovery Files. This fixed my problem. Took a few email exchanges but I thought the responses were very quick.

I have heard that there is an upgrade to the Magellan Maestro 4040, where you can actually speak to the device and get things like directions to the closest resturant. How do I get this upgrade if...


Upgrade your Magellan Maestro with hands-free Voice Command & Control for the easiest, most satisfying navigation experience.

Your Maestro 4040 will respond to your voice commands to give you quick information and an instant route to nearby points of interest. Activate Voice Command & Control and find the nearest coffee, food, gas and ATM simply by speaking. Ask for your current location and distance to destination and hear the details as you keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Just say the word and get instant information about the nearest roadside assistance.

Purchase the upgrade and you will be given a unique unlock code. Enter the code* into your Magellan Maestro 4040 and let your voice put you in command

Magellan Maestro 3100 stuck on


If you followed the procedure closely, you now have an SD card with your backup on it. The backup consists of two folders: BACKUP, and USBTRANS. Insert the backup SD card in your PC's reader slot and open a "file explorer" aka "Windows Explorer", not to be confused with "Internet Explorer". You will use Windows Explorer to click and drag the USBRANS folder to the Maestro.

With the Maestro 3100 connected to the PC, a couple of Explorer folders will open and you can see the file structure for the GPS in 1, and in the other one a separate file structure for the blank SD card needed for the update. Look at the file structure for the GPS and you should see a handful of folders including "SYS".

  • Start the upgrade program, following the procedures.
  • Click the NEXT button at the bottom of the procedures screen.
  • Immediately copy the backed up USBTRANS folder (and all contents) to the SYS folder on the GPS.
  • The update should now find the Maestro 3100 and proceed with the update.

SUMMARY: copy USBTRANS (it should contain 1 file: UNIT.DAT)
  • from your BACKUP SD card (not the one in the Maestro)
  • to your Maestro 3100's SYS folder.
