It depends. The way most Magellans work is that when you begin putting in addresses, the GPS looks for addresses that match it, and greys-out numbers and letters that don't match. If it stops on one address you're trying to put in, it's possible that the address is not in the memory.

Sounds like you got a bad update, you might be able to download an update from magellan, and put it on your sd card then load it that way to finish the update.

Lately I've seen alot of problems with people having a hard time signing in. Just a tidbit of background, the PS3 is very sensitive when it comes to the wifi card and network card sensitive enough that some modems, routers and modem/router combos have a very hard time allowing the PS3 to function online correctly. Now to get to the fix: unplug all cables from the modem and router for approximately 20 seconds and then plug all cables back in, modem 1st the router. Let the modem and router cycle through its powering and connection routine and then see if your PS3 will sign in. If it won't connect the the PS3 server still then find the reset button on the back of your modem/router or router if its 2 seperate devices and take a ball point pen and press the reset button in and hold it for no more than 9 seconds, allow the devices to cycle through and then try your PS3. If it still doesn't work then do the reset thing again but hold the reset button in for 15seconds this will put the device back to the factory setting (which if you use a passphrase, there will no longer be a passphrase and will make your network unsecure. You can put a new passphrase in using a PC and entering 1 of these 2 ip addresses in the web address bar or those are the 2 common ip addresses. Then go into the wireless tab and follow the intructions. If those ip addresses don't work then on your PC click on the start menu and in the search box type in cmd which will bring up a DOS prompt (Any Windows version XP and older you would type it into the run box) type this in exactly as I do ipconfig you ip address is the Default Gateway and thats the number you will type into the web address bar. NOTE; the most comon username and password to get into the modem or router is admin, admin. Comcast is admin, password1.

The touch screen on my magellan 5310 no longer responds to anything. It is 3 months old and barely used. I used it for 3 days driving to Florida. The next trip it stopped responding to touch sfter 2...

Hi gmarleau

an reset or an update might fix it, but if it doesnt, its still under warranty!

turn on your 5310 and locate the reset on the bottom left of your unit (small pinhole) use a paperclip to insert and depress the reset switch.

if that fails and you want to try an update, you can get the 4.72 update HERE you have to sign in and register before they will let you download anything.

to send it in for warranty repair or replacement call the number listed below.

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT
Telephone: 800 707 9971
