    Thanks for the hint about the reset button. I have been looking for 2 hours trying the support website, my support disk, etc. This quickly solved the problem.

    Thanks.

After cleaning magellan GPS with windex the touch screen stopped reacting to finger touch commands


Slide power switch then slide and hold the power switch in the off position for more than 8 seconds. this will reset the device. you might have to do this a couple of times

If the above doesn't work, you should update your device software by visiting the content manager page of the magellan website

How do i do a hard reset on a magellen maestro 4040?


  • 1 Slide the Magellan GPS unit's powericon1.png switch to the off position, if your GPS has a two-way slide-style switch. Hold the switch in the off position for 8 seconds or more to reset the device.
  • 2 Slide the switch to the reset position if your GPS has a three-way switch. These switches feature "Reset," "Off" and "On" labels. Hold the switch on the reset position for 10 seconds to initiate a reset.
  • 3 Inspect your GPS for a reset pin hole if the unit has a push-down power button rather than a switch -- check the bottom and sides of the device for a pin-sized hole. Insert a pin or a straightened paperclip into the hole, pushing until you feel a slight pop. Hold the pin or clip down for 10 seconds and the GPS will reset.

    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

    Occasionally, a unit will need to be reset. This can be due to software errors, firmware updates or simply at the command of technical support staff. A reset either will restart the unit, possibly clearing up any minor errors, or will restore the unit to the settings it was built with. There are three major Magellan units, which utilize different methods to perform this task.

    Things You'll Need:
    • A thin object (such as a paper clip)

    Using the stylus, tap "Main Menu" and select "View."
    Tap "Settings," and select "Restore Factory Settings." You will be given the option to confirm this action. Be sure that you want to reset to the settings that the GPS was built with. This action is irreversible.
    Tap "Confirm," and the unit will begin to reset.

    Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units
    Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
    Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
    If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.


    Tips & Warnings
    • Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.

    no you cannot open it if the unit is under warranty call magellan and let them repair it but if the unit is no longer under a warranty magellan have a customer loyalty program were you can swap your old unit for a new one with a discounted price.

    Battery


    BertM, I had the same problem and also do not use it frequently enough. The unit finally gave way about 7-8 months. I am hoping that Magellan will honor their warranty and find it's bad battery. I am awaiting an RMA. Visit following site for help:

    Will not come on.


    GPS units should never be permanently left in vehicles. The vehicle interiors get way too cold or hot depending on the climate you live in and is very damaging.

    Try taking it indoors and connect it via the supplied a/c wall charger and see if it turns on.
