Re: downloading new version 6 to my roadmate 700-760 gps

I reinstalled the dvd into my computer.I powered up the roadmate700 and hit the enter button and the screen came up to pick user I hit user one. I plugged the USB calble in and started the download again and it worked out for me just fine. I hope this works for you also. Good Luck

I downloaded this new software for my gps and it said to unplug it from my computer, so I did. Now it won't turn on. It just keeps going to the loading screen. There is no reset button and if I turn it off...

The first thing to try is to hook it back up to your computer and try reloading it. If that will not work, try to download and install the previous version.

After dowloaldin and then uploading an update for my Magellan roadmate 1700, iwas instructed to reset the unit and allow it to reboot. All I get now when I power on is the reboot screen and it never starts...

tim if you havent already sent your unit into magellin i have a 5 min fix for you.
1) plug in your magellin
2) when the auto play option pops up on your computer, click open folder to view files
3) double click the app folder
4) find FirmwareReleaseVersion.dll and delete it.
now just simply unplug your roadmate 1700 reset it and plug it back in to your compter and re download the updates. you will start with version 2.77 then version 3.11 and it should work.

I downloaded the 2.20 version for my RoadMate, oh no!!!

Same thing happened to me. I downloaded the 2.20 update and it will not let me boot up the unit. It will not get past the spinning clock. I needed to go on a trip this weekend and have to use my cell phone as my gps. What a big let down.

I have a Magellan RoadMate 800 want to update

there is a firmware update (2.12) for your 800, you can download it HERE then just follow the directions to update your unit...the link above it for the 800 north american version, so if you have the Europe version, just got to the support page and select your unit.

you must register your magellan on their website before they will let you download anything.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.
