Hold the power button down and hold it about 10 seconds and it should re-boot it. It happens to my husband all the time.

Magellan maestro 3100 stuck at bootup screen


did that just happen all of a sudden or did you try and update the 3100 and it failed to boot after that...if you didnt try to update it...turn the 3100 on then use a paper clip to depress the reset on the left side bottom of the gps and let it restart.

if that fails, let me know and ill help you further

if it just froze and you didnt do aqnything to it, like try and install the 2.18 update, try the reset.

turn the gps on the use a paper clip and insert it in the tiny hole on the lower left side of the gps and let it restart..if it still freezes, let me know and ill tell you what you can do next to get your 3100 running again.

Magellan maestro 3100 frozen on blue screen tried power on and off and reset button still frozen black bar at bottom of scren stays on blue screen


i just replied to a fellow with the same problem and since your problem is same, ill post what i wrote him/her but try a hard reset 1st..turn the gps on then locate the little pin hole on the side, using a paper clip, push reset....if that fails, try the 2.18 update if you havent already.

updates for any magellan can be found HERE
but read below first before getting the update

i cant stress enough that patients is a must here. this update is huge 1.75GB

follow the instructions below whether you have updated your gps already or not!

There are few ways to solve this problem. i assume you installed the 2.18 update for the 3100 and assuming you tried the reset already, try and run the update again and follow the directions to the letter..make sure the battery is fully charged (i also keep mine plugged in if the update doesnt say not to) and do not try and run the update across a network. this update is huge 1.75GB and can take an hour or so depending on the computer..do not interrupt the update process. if you do not have the 2.18 update read me file, i can try and post it here, but its in PDF and dont think i can post that

if all else fails, magellan will fix or replace for free any of there gps that were rendered inoperable due to one of there updates.

either solution will work but magellans going to tell you to run the update again anyway before sending it back.

i gave you the 2 easyest ways to fix it,but
there are other ways to get it running again, but if your not comfortable copying and moving files...youll make it even worst then it is.

hope this helps.

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.
