Hung up magellan roadmate 760

In trying to download the new map update to my unit, I have managed to hang up the magellan in a loading mode and it isn't loading. I rebooted my computer as it said to do in the initial set up to download, but that has messed up everything. Now the magellan is displaying only "LOADING..." and the computer says it can't find the unit. I don't know how to reset the magellan or to get my computer to "find" the unit again. Now I have no navigation at all. Don't have a clue what to do.

You'll need to call customer service at 866-868-2259.

They should be able to tell you how to do an "emergency reboot". You also need to make sure you have the latest "firmware" before installing any updates.

I need an upgrade for my magellan Roadmate 760

You can download an upgrade for this unit from the Magellan website for free. Maps can be upgraded but they cost about $80, and that doesn't seem worth it to me. See if that works for you.

Loading New Map

I don't know if this is much of a solution, but from what I understand from my extensive research on this product (I bought one online and have been trying to get updated maps), Magellan no longer supports this unit. I looked on their website to confirm, and on the "Scheduled Map Updates" list, the Magellan 300 has no further updates available. Apparently, this has been the case for the last few years.

I brought my Magellan roadmate 760 0n 3-9-06. How do I get it up dated. The last time I try to use it It would't talk to me.

You can go on Magellan's website and they have software downloads for the operating system. If you want new maps you have to pay about $80, also available on the website, but I don't think it's worth it for this unit.

Magellan Roadmate 760 map update problem

Just push the antenna firmly back into the base; it pivots on a coax connector.
This is typical when you drop it.
The antenna is removable.

Map update for the 3250

I would avoid map updates from Magellan like the plague. They have a strange way of frying the units. Unless you want to be without your GPS and fighting with Magellan for months, leave the map software the way it is.
