I guess you can't believe everything you read either.
I don't know if these are included with Maestro 3100, but you might have a look around the CD you received to see if these programs are on it.
JM No there is simply an autorun file that leads me through a warranty registration process, and a downloads folder that simply contains user manuals in format. I've connected the 3100 to the PC in hopes that would start some sort of autorun, but that didn't help either.
Insert a blank memory card (must be 16 MB to 2 GB).
Push the end of a paper clip into the small hole on the Maestro 3100 marked "Reset."Open the update zip file.
We live in a rural area and locating department stores, grocery stores, etc.
on the fly is more important than I initially thought.Is it possible to update the POI database on this unit? I've looked everywhere for a download from Magellan for software to no avai.The receiver came with a USB cable and a CD that is literally useless.What would the USB cable be for other than updates? I have a Magellan 3000T, and the CD it came with included a program called "Magellan POI File Editor".This program, along with "Magellan Road Mate Tools" (also on the CD) are enough to create and transfer POI file to the GPS.Click "I Want to Download this Update."Scroll to the bottom of the update page. Otherwise, it is erased during the hard reset/update procedure.
