Magellan roadmate 800 map update won't run freezes pc

I just received the map update for my roadmate 800 and the dvd will not run. This is the second update sent to me that won't run. I've tried on xp service pack 3 and was told to use sp 2. I tried on laptop with sp 2 and still nothing. I get a program not responding error. No autostart and doesn't work when I try to run setup.exe.

Any thoughts?

    I have the same problem and support is going to send me another DVD, but it looks like I've lost my GPS.

Where can i download up to date maps for free for my magellan roadmate 800


You have to first go online and search Magellan Contact Manager to download that software to manage your device. Once that is done, you connect your device and register it. Then on the menu choose Help and "check for updates". There will be a scan and the available updates for software, maps etc will show, as will their cost if any.

According to Magellan at their website, a new map update will be available next month (sometime). There is a firmware update there now.  The firmware update works fine if you follow their instructions.....full battery charge etc.

Up date


Yes - Firmware 6 (5.37) and 'new' maps.. BUT I have had a heck of a time trying to get all the relevant info from magellan - TERRIBLE SUPPORT.

I am now buying a TOTOM GO 720T for less than £300 vs more than £800 that I paid for the Roadmate. The TOMTOM has maps and cameras preloaded and does auto update from a cradle linked to PC.

Bin the Magellan, you won't regert it.
