SOURCE: Magellan Roadmate 360 Manager Software Program, and Preloaded SD Card

Hi guyz I pretty much did the same thing!!! I bought this gps for my girlfriend for valentines from a friend and i was trying to restore it to its factory default and the only option i found was repair and i did an internal memory format like a ****! well everything seems to be fine but no audio at all! I've done lots of research and it seems to be that the only way to fix it is by restoring the sounds files but where can i get them? I MEAN magellan doesn't provide any support any more due to the unit is discontinued! I mean how messed up is that? AND why would they provide with such a horrible option? that's sad! Can anyone please please please help me? please I'm going crazy here! :(

SOURCE: Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power

unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

Magellan Roademate 5045 frozen on map screen. Is there any way of restarting it? There is no small hole for a reset button and I tried holding the power slider for ten seconds. No luck


I had exact same 'Magellan 5045 frozen' problem. Here is how I fixed it. Go to www.magellangps.com/contentmanager. Download and install Magellan Content Manager. Plug in your GPS. If content manager does not activate automatically, start it manually, like any other windows program or by right clicking on its icon. You will be asked to register your device and its serial number, etc.
After registering, if Content Manager fails to take you directly to the download location for your device, along the top of the Magellan web pages you will see a set of tabs, one of those is 'Support'. This is a pull-down menu. Select Manuals and Software update. This then takes you to their 'Support' web page. On the support web page, click on the 'Manuals and Software Downloads' button. This will take you to a page where you will be asked to select from four Download Categories. For the roadmate 5045 and similar gps intended to be used in an auto, select 'Magellan Vehicle Navigation'. This will take you to another page where you will have to select from three product series. For the 5045 series, select 'Roadmate Series'. This is another pulldown where you will have to select your product number, e.g., Roadmate 5045. This will finally take you to a page where you can select software and map updates. You will have to connect your Roadmate gps to your computer via USB and you will have to register. It is confusing because you will get incorrect and irrelevant statements like your device failed to register. It is somewhat quirky but if you follow the instructions and you have a wideband cable or FIOS internet connection, the upgrade to the software and the maps takes about 30 minutes. Do unplug your RoadMate from the USB unless asked to do so by the Content Manager program. After the software and maps update, the Roadmate 5045 worked like better than new for me.

My Magellan RoadMate 1340 will power up to logo and "moving clock


Have you tried updating the software on your device.
Go to Magellan.com and download the Magellan Content Manger:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/map.asp?tab=0&PRODID=2216
Once you've installed Content Manger onto your PC, connect your device to your PC using the USB cord. The Content Manager will allow you to update your 1340 with the latest software and updates which 'should' fix the problem that you're having with your unit.

I was in the process of updating my Magellan 1400 GPS when I got an error "cant read source file" and now the GPS unit won't boot up.


Hello there again
Step 1: On the RoadMate, press ++--+-
this will bring up the "hidden menu". From there, you can access the shell, perform a hard reset, and additional tasks on some units.
There - now you know how to access the "hidden menu" on a Magellan RoadMate. Use it at your own peril. Cheers!
