    2008/2008 map update failed after about 20 minutes when my computer no longer detected the DVD. Unable to get past the blue screen on my 3200. Tried reset button but did not solve problem.

    Purchased 2008/2009 update, but it failed with approximately 15 minutes left in the update. Now, unit is frozen on Magellan screen. Have reset unit several times, powered on/off several times; same problem. PC no longer recognizes unit, but when I detach USB cable, unit resets itself and reloads to same Magellan screen, then freezes again.

    I have the same problem....i bought the 2009 update for my 3200 and it failed on the installation about 20 minutes into the process. Now my GPS unit only shows the blue magellan screen and the reset button doesnt actually work when i press it....it only brings me right back to the infamous blue screen. Im guessing since i see others are having the same problem that this is a big issue with the update that magellan is going to have to fix.

Hi, I had the same problem with my 3200. Got the update, and it bricked my unit. After 3 weeks of searching the net for solutions, all of which did not work, I called Magellan Tech Support today. Simply told them that I was updating the maps, update failed, and now the unit will not boot past the blue magellan screen with the progress bar. They asked for some information, including the email address that you used to register the product, and the serial number of the unit, as well as the map update information...which you had to register to get the unlock code. They are able to see all of this c in their tests on the unit, which of course did not work. I was then given a RA#, and account #, and was assured that I would get a pre-paid shipping label via email within 24 hours. All you have to do is pack the unit and take it to fed-ex with the label. They will fix your unit with the updated maps, and return it to you via Fed-Ex. Took no longer than 15 minutes on the phone, which beats the 3 weeks of research that did not help. Problem solved. Just call Tech Support, this is a well-known problem, and they will fix your unit and update the map. Hope this helps.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

Mid point between laurel and Annapolis maryland


Go to a mapsite of your choice..googlemaps, bing maps, etc. Type in both locations, check total kms and divide in half. Whatever city/town is closest to that point would be half way

Screen comes up with updating bluetooth firmware & stays at 45%.


Your unit if locatiing a cell phone close by, could be yours or a friends in the car, on standing near you.

I would disable Bluetooth first, to do that go to Tools...Settings.... Bluetooth.... under Bluetooth disable then re-do your Bluetooth connection

Tools....Settings... Bluetooth .. under Connection you can remove the connection there also

If you don't have a Bluetooth connection you want to use just disable it
