My Magellan Roadmate 800 starts until Magellan logo and does not go further.
I have the bug fix installed, not solving.
How did I find disk related problem ?
1. slide reset switch to zero
2. push at the same time on PLUS and MINUS buttons and keep pressing. Switch "reset" to one. keep PLUS and MINUS while pushing "power on"
3. blue screen appears
"Ruby SBoot R12.3"
select 3=HDD Tools (press low arrow 3 times)
then press "ENTER"
4. DO NOT SELECT 0="Partition And Format"
select 1=Smart Test then ENTER
waite untill "tested 100%" disk OK
5. in my case I had "disk test failed"
that's why my RoadMate do not boot
6. I buy a new disk
20GB ZIF HITASCHI TRAVELSTAR C4K60 4
13.99$ + shipping at COMPUVEST CORP
7. install new disk
8. => Ruby SBoot R12.3 => HDD Tool => Partition And Format"
9. reinstall Magellan system software from PC
10 it works ! EXCEPT NO MAP
Maps are not included in system software
HERE I NEED HELP
Anyone willing to send maps to me ?
I can explain how to do it: run Windows CE
by pressing + + - - + - + - in "MENU" screen
NOTE I am going to visit USA (yellowstones) in two weeks, I would like to use my Roadmate
Thanks for reading !
It is quite likely that any maps you obtain from others will not work in your GPS as maps are coded back to component parts in the unit ANTI PIRACY codes .Similar to MS serial numbers. It reads ID's and checks against those stored in map. The only option is to purchase new maps for the area you want.
