Magellan Maestro 4040 Bootloader?

A bootloader?

Can anyone tell me what this is? It seems to be some sort of bootloader. I looked it up, and it seems as though you can update the WinCE image by using WinCE update. If I can get a backup Magellan Maestro 4040 WinCEimg.bin, I'll see if I can upgrade the OS to a normal WinCE environment, complete with desktop. Maybe in the future I'll be able to get Linux on it. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Power button is select, reset button is a down arrow. Here's the Menu breakdown:
