Hi there. I'm new to gps's in genral but fairly computer literate. I bought a magellan maestro 4010 yesterday and decided to follow the steps to install file manager and the media player etc. Whilst copying things accross i stupidly replaced navigator.exe instead of renaming it to mynavigator.exe. I checked the magellan website for replacement firmware but there doest seem to be any for the 4010 so i downloaded the one for the 4040 and extracted the navigator .exe from it and transeferred it on to the gps. The software will now run but asks for me to insert an sd card with maps on constantly. The original maps are still on the gps untouched (all of the original files are intact except navigator.exe) I have checked media.cfg is ok and it all seems fine to me. I know i should have made a backup etc but i didn't and am now at a loss. Could some kind soul please give me some advice and/or let me know where to get appropriate firmware/files from. The gps was bought in the UK and will be used there. And I would be happy to just return it to its original state and forget about media player etc. Thanks in advance Matt
Hello mate... Firstly thanks so much for replying. I have registered the GPS with Magellan and it still shows no firmware for the 4010.. infact half the time the 4010 isnt even on their menus. I have checked the GPS internal memory and theres no folder called "speech" sorry.
The details when i went to product info are as follows: Firmware: 1.27 Model No: EU Hardware version: 1 Product ID: 722 OS Version: R09 SH Version: 2.05 Navigator version 1.06
I'm not sure if the navigator version is correct as when i right click and go to the properties on the file it says version 18.104.22.168 size 9.88mb I just took the navigator.exe form the 2.36 firmware i downloaded (but the GPS would not recognise saying product identifier does not match) and dragged it on to the Gps to replace the one i deleted.
