    Magellan Maestro 4040....

    Hey there everyone,
    First of all , Its an honor with be with all you experts.
    This is my first post on a GPS forum.

    Im really looking for some help on my issues. If you guys could point me in the right direction then that would be awesome.

    I've been looking around for steps and instructions for installing iGo, Navigon and or Mio on a Magellan Maestro 4040 but no luck.
    I've even read about upgrading the firmware of an older Maestro GPS with an newer Maestro GPS's but nothing related to Magellan Maestro 4040.

    Has anyone ever done this before?

    Im sure a lot of folks have asked these questions and you good folks have answered em, but I could not find it and Im a newbie at this.

    Your help is monumentally appreciated folks !

    Hi KingKoopa,

    Have you tried Miopocket 2.0? Seems that its working fine on Magellan Maestro 4040.

    Found in other forum how to unlock it..

    Cheers

    Dupree,

    Thanks for the response Pal !

    So what I dont understand is that , first I have to unlock the bad boy and install MioPocket.
    Then I will be able to install other navigation systems on it?
    is that correct?

    Or the MioPocket installation process also unlocks the GPS?

    Thanks for help pal !

    Hi KingKoopa,

    Yes thats right.. You have to unlock your gps in order to install what ever software you like..

    Miopocket is one of the popular unlock for most window ce devices. Other than that there are lots of wince ce unlock out there but i`ve never heard anybody succeeded to unlock Magellan.

    Cheers

    Dupree !
    Im back ,
    I got everything,
    I followed these steps , I think Im almost there with this MioPocket thing. But I did encounter an issue and your expert help is needed and appreciated.

    When it time to run the softbutton and choose the exe file , which i know should mioautorun.exe located on SD Card's root and it is !!
    It doesnt show me the SD Card.....It doesnt pick up anything.......I can see all the exe files under /APP on the GOS Unit's Disk , but I dont see the SD-CARD exe files.

    What did I do wrong?
    Please please help !!!!!!!

    King Koopa !

    Re: Magellan Maestro 4040....

    Here is what my sd-card looks like:

    \SDMMC Card\MioAutoRun
    \SDMMC Card\Media
    \SDMMC Card\GS399AutoRun.inf
    \SDMMC Card\MioAutoRun.exe
    \SDMMC Card\MioAutoRun.mscr
    \SDMMC Card\MortScript.exe

    Following are the contents of GS399AutoRun.inf:
    open=MioAutoRun.exe

    I had to download the softbutton.exe and rename it to Navigator.exe under Hard drive/APP ....and renamed the original Navigator.exe to Backup_Navigator.exe

    what did I do wrong Dupree?
    Help me Pal !
