Magellan roadmate sd card error

My gps unit says that my sd card is removed but it is not. It has worked perfectly for about a year and now it reads this error message and won't let me reset it or anything else.

I had a similar error and I fixed it. That is, as far as I know...

Here's my theory: The SD card is acting like it has an error on it. This often happens when it is removed improperly.

HERE'S HOW TO FIX IT:

  1. Remove your SD card from your GPS
  2. Insert your SD card into an SD card reader or connect it to your PC
  3. Wait for windows to go through it's process of discovering your the "removable storage device" your just connected (see step 2)
  4. (This step may be different depending on what version of Windows you are using or depending on how you have your OS laid out). Look at the lower right hand corner of your desktop. There should me a small icon there with a green circle and a check mark. It looks like this...magellan roadmate sd card error - 877f33f.jpg
  5. Click that with the right mouse button.
  6. It will say "Safely Remove Hardware" - Left click that message.
  7. A window will pop up allowing you to select your SD card and "Safely Remove" it (it will have a letter name like "drive F" for example).
  8. Wait for the windows to tell you it is ok to remove your hardware - then remove your SD card form the PC
  9. Make sure your GPS is turned off.
  10. Insert the SD card into your GPS.
  11. Turn on your GPS
  12. That's all! I hope I was able to help.
IF THIS HELPED, please leave a comment indicating that it did! If it did not help, please let me know that as well.

Updating my Magellan 5120 does not. I get error message at the end of two hours there is insufficient space


Install an SD card to add additional space, there should be slot for it on the GPS, if not you will need to replace the GPS with a newer unit.

While using my Magellian GPS 1200 the screen froze up and when I went to restart it the following messang appeard.SD card has been removed.Program will restart.Please insert SD card with map. I tried re...


More then likely when the screen froze up on you it it had a little power glitch as well, nothing serious but it did wipe out some of the information in it's memory about the SD card.Power the unit up and let it come up with the error, then use the reset button. Might be hard to find since it's just a little hole with the word reset around it, using a paperclip push in the button and see what happens. If the error comes up again then i am thinking that you will need a new SD card. Quick test for this, remove the SD card from the gps unit and try rebooting, it should come up with an error, no SD card or no map, stick in an SD card from another device, 2gb, see if the gps can find the card, it should give you an error that says unable to find maps. If you get these error codes then most likely the gps unit is fine but it pooched your programs on the SD card.
Hope this helps

SD Card for magellan 300,Can I use any card on it? I've just got it as a gift without the card. Is there any website where to buy it?


The Magellan Roadmate 300 and 300R both require preloaded map data to be supplied from an SD card. You can't just pop any card into the slot and get it working. It requires a card of 2GB or less loaded with Magellan mapping software. Magellan provides nationwide maps and regional maps. The 300R was a regional unit while the 300 included a national basemap.

If you have a model 300, you can still use the highway basemap to get routing from city to city but you will not have detailed address routing at the residential street level unless you insert an SD card with Magellan software. If you have a 300R model, the unit will be useless without the Magellan software on an SD card.

Magellan doesn't seem to offer much software support for this unit any more and the maps are difficult to find.

Decided to upgrade my software on my roadmate 1440 to ver 2.05 Rel 3. Process appeard to work fine except during the transfer to the roadmate my pc threw a delayed write error message. when this happened...


this is one of the perils of updating a magellan.

it sounds like the update has not taken. i suggest (if you havent already) you try the update again and if that fails, call magellan for a free replacement or repair.

Magellan will repair or replace any of their gps units rendered inoperable do to one of there updates regardless of the warranty (i assume you got this update off there site, because they will ask)

you can contact them at the number below

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT

Magellan roadmate 1412 just stop working and displayed the following messange: "SD card has been removed. Program will restart. Please insert SD Card with map"


Providing you saved the SD card info as soon as you got it, reformat the SD card and copy the files over. Or find a friend that has the same unit and copy their files. Reformat your card before also.

Missing SD Map Card on Magellan Roadmate 1212


Unfortunately even if you do find a card it will not work with your unit because the cards have to be for that unit.If it is from another unit the codes will not allow it to work. The only option I know of is to purchase your map for that unit and put it on a sd card
