Roadmate 5045 slow after update


Magellan support was actually pretty good helping me with the exact same issue. The problem (at least in my case) was that the map files were fragmented. I tried using the Windows defragmenter, but that made fragmentation even worse! The Magellan support engineer recommended I download UltraDefrag instead:
http://ultradefrag.sourceforge.net/en/index.html

Here's what I had to do to completely resolve my issue:
1. Download and install UltraDefrag
2. Connect my GPS to my PC
3. Move the MAP directory from my GPS drive (J:) to my hard disk
4. In UltraDefrag, make sure Action > Skip removable media is not selected
5. Run the optimizer (Ctrl-F7 or Action > Full optimization) after selecting the GPS drive (J: on my computer)
6. Copy the MAP files back to the J: drive AFTER optimization has completed

I double-checked the fragmentation after the files were copied and got 0%. After disconnecting the GPS from the PC, the unit rebooted and doing an address search no longer takes 15 seconds. POI searchs are also much faster than before.

How to update map


I helped a buddy update his Uniden GPS (Trax350). Simply follow these steps and you should be done.

Uniden's MapTrax350 GPS device accepts voice-command programming and provides detailed audio commands, as well, speaking aloud the map directions that are displayed on its screen. Keeping your Trax350's firmware updated is crucial to keeping it working correctly. Usually, you can go to a company's website and download the latest software, but with Uniden, you must register your product first to access the proper free upgrades. It takes minutes.

Instructions

things you'll need: USB cable

1 Navigate to the link in the Resources section and fill in the required fields. Click on "Register."
2 Turn on your device and connect it to the computer using its USB cable.
3 Log in to the site with the password that was sent to your email address after you registered the device.
4 Choose "Software Upgrades." Select the MapTrax350 device, and the latest firmware upgrade will appear. Click "Download."
5 Select "Save File" and choose a location on your computer to save it to. After it has downloaded, double-click the program icon, select "Run" and follow the prompts to update your Trax350.

Good luck!

I installed the Pioneer AVIC-F900BT and it has been


Windows CE is used to operate the Pioneer AVIC F series, which yours falls into. That version of Windows has not been patched or updated with the new day light savings times and since the player uses GPS to get the current time and Windows to make the time change for your zone then your time will not update until the orginal daylight savings time occurs. You can try to change the time to manual in the Pioneer settings, deal with the wrong time for just a lil bit longer until the original Daylight Savings Time takes place, or re-search an update and way to update the players OS which is Windows CE. Hope this helps :)

Why is it that with my tom tom GPS i cant search for exact addresses?


get the latest APPLICATION from www.tomtom.com or by plugging in via USB. This should update your device and you will be able to find lots more when searching, some addresses do not exist ( to the tomtom) and these should be FLAGGED as MAP ERORS using your device. Then they will be amended by Tomtom corp. in later updates of the maps, gor this reason you also need to keep you tomtom updated via MAPSHARE.
