Question about Magellan RoadMate 360 GPS Receiver
Whenever I get in my car, the GPS turns on. It goes through the series of start-up modes; the "Magellan" start-up screen, then the User 1, User 2, and User 3 screen, then the Map, Select Address, List Address, Points of Interest and whatever else. This is where it gets hairy, the next screen is when it is suppose to be a map of where you are at. Everytime it gets to this point, it restarts. When I enter an address, it will go through the whole series, (address, town, route, shortest distance - whatever) you can see the lines for mapping the route and when the screen is suppose to change to the map, it restarts. At first I thought it was because it was cold, because after a short time it will start mapping. Sometimes it will take 20 minutes for it to get to a map, then when I put in an address, at that certain screen it will restart. Now? Forget it. I turned the unit off for good. I use this for work - everyday! I can't find any information regarding this issue. I couldn't possibly have worn it out. What is up with this?
My Roadmade firmware is version 1.81. I had the same problem. I called them and they didn't help with anything. I went to Magellen's site and downloaded the firmware upgrader (which is 1.81), and reflashed my device with it (Yes, it's the same version as it was before). Perhaps a file was corrupted in my unit or something, because after updating my firmware (to the same version), it started to work.
