Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS - File Error / Inaccessible Maps

I recently tried updating my Magellan 4040 GPS with the latest firmware update (v2.36). The update utility ran fine, however when I uplugged the USB cable from the GPS, it rebooted, showed the Magellan logo, and then displayed a blue screen stating "!!!File Error!!! Please Cold Boot and Try Again." I tried cold booting and the interface appears normal, but whenever I try to access anything with maps it reports "Map Initialization Status: Please insert SD Card with Maps." I've tried reinstalling the update, with no luck. Would really appreciate your expert advice! Thanks!

    When powering on my Magellan Maestro 4040 I receive a Map Initialization Status: Please insert SD Card with Map message. The thing is I have never used a SD Card with this unit. Is there a way to set this to the factory defaults? It appears the maps are missing or corrupt.

    I tried updating and had the same problem, finally i had to call tech support and registered myself online, just send accross the unit and they will fix it for you, make sure you are still covered by warranty!
    The other way( i don't suggest this!) if you know how to install Windows CE, you might be able to overcome this problem.

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen


if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)


if you need further help, just reply to this post.
