Hi

I believe if you plug the unit into your computer you can explore the files and there should be a file called password or pwd or.. something along those lines.. all you have to do is delete the file and it will work. It was surprisingly easy I remember that much. If this doesn't work, play/look around with the files in the unit, and as a precaution I would copy the file over to your computer prior to deleting just in case.

I have a Magellan RoadMate 800 want to update


there is a firmware update (2.12) for your 800, you can download it HERE then just follow the directions to update your unit...the link above it for the 800 north american version, so if you have the Europe version, just got to the support page and select your unit.

you must register your magellan on their website before they will let you download anything.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.

Reinstalling magellan road 800 on pc with out cd


You can download Magellan MapSend and/or VantagePoint from their website for free and reinstall on your computer:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/software.asp

These will let your computer talk to your GPS again.

If you need to reinstall maps, though, you can't get a new CD for free. You would have to start a customer support case with Magellan and provide proof of purchase.
