Question about Magellan Crossover GPS
Magellan Crossover only works with Windows XP (pretty sure SP1, 2 & 3). There are no drivers other than what's on the CD installation disk and those are for XP.
if you're using Vista many of us are in same boat and since it's an old product, Magellan is moving on. Their tech support will tell you to use it on a PC that works with it.... yeah I liked that too. ::sigh::
I have not tried this, but will this evening (found on other web site of people in same baot):
Installing Magiellan SW using Vista and XP "compatibility mode".
1) Insert topo installation disk into drive (When the autorun prompt pops up hit cancel to stop the autorun)
2) Click on COMPUTER (Windows Vista)
3) Highlight disk drive with topo installation CD
4) Right click and select OPEN
5) Highlight SETUP (the installer tool "setup.exe") - If you can't see which file is the .exe switch your view to details or perhaps change the folder settings to view file extensions.
6) Right click and select PROPERTIES
7) Select COMPATIBILITY tab
8) Check box next to RUN IN COMPATIBILITY MODE (WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2)
9) Hit OKAY until you are back reading the files on the topo installation CD
10) Double click on SETUP.EXE to begin the installation
GOOD LUCK (got my fingers crossed)!!

I have a same problem, but it was solved.
You can go to magellangps.com website, then go to support.
There you will be able to download the driver.
But you may need to register first.

Ah, I retract my previous post. Rebooting the PC and the unit, chkdsk didn't find any errors, so for fun and amusement, I started the install again and this time it completed, so now I am the proud owner of Firmware 5.36 and maps from Q3 of FY2006. Hmm, not quite what I paid for, but working nonetheless.
Anyway, lesson learned is that if the copy fails, check the unit for disk errors, assume Windows has probably gone insane, and reboot stuff.

You don't say how the update failed, so it's hard to say what to do next. In my case, I had a bad sector on the disk of my 700, so running chkdsk on it fixed it up and I was able to complete the update.

Try rebooting windows, with gps off connect the cable to gps.
Go out side get a good gps signals on nav menu.
Set the gps communications menu to , nmea, 2.1
Plug the device into a good usb port.
If you look under modems, in control panel you should see a new modem called explorist xxx
If you look at the properties for that you can see its com port number.
I just tried this program http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPS/
and it views nmea from the explorist, just set the com port to the one in the explorist modem .
