Question about GPS

Open Question

After doing an update on my roadmate 2220-LM, it no longer looks up addresses or maps at all. Is there a factory restore? I held down on all the power/reset buttons, is there a factory restore?

Go to the system menu:

On the menu bar ( the top bar where it says Sytem Settings) Tap left corner twice, right corner twice, left corner once, right corner once. It will bring up a hidden menu. The first thing on the hidden menu is reset for first use. Press that and you have done the equivalent of a hard reset.

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.

How do 'I find backroad and concessions in the country...they have fire numbers


The first thing you may want to do is locate the address or location on an online map service (google maps, mapquest, etc.) If it's not there chances are it will not be in the device. When search for an address you may try by typing in the zip code first. If that does not work try by city first. What is the exact address you are looking for?

Free map update fpr magellan roadmate 2000


There is no longer any map updates or accessories available for the Roadmate 2000.
Magellan has obsoleted this unit and no longer has support for it or any accessories.
I talked to them online as well as on the phone.
So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.
And there are no sites online that has any software to upgrade maps for this unit.
So keep your plugs because they work on other units, but take a baseball bat and hit a home run with your roadmate 2000.
Thats all its worth now.

Magellan roadmate 2120T too slow after updates


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.

Sounds to me like it's a software update failure. Try reloading the Software Update.
