Power loss during software upgrade -- now Serial Number is "Unprogrammed"


I had a power loss while upgrading the software on my Magellan RM700.

Now when I try to upgrade, the Authorization Code is rejected, and on the diagnostics menu my serial number is listed as "Unprogrammed".

Any help is appreciated.

Force the Upgrade of your SKY + firmware at the touch of a button

This applies to all PVR2 and PVR3 Amstrad. Pace and Thompson SKY+ units you Sky installer may do this for your it is simple to do;


the TV and SKY+ will look like this during the upgrade please do not power down during this time as you will almost certainly kill your unit I always connect my Belkin UPS prior to a forced upgrade just to make sure it is always best to make sure that it will not fail during this process.


Notice that the lights on the unit this one is a PACE type PVR2 the REMOTE MESSAGE and ONLINE LED's are all illuminated as well as the POWER.

I had an old PACE box that had been used for the last 8 years that was still at v5.04d given to me last month I forced the upgrade and it took it to the latest version v5.07u this may not sound that important but there are some firmware versions especially for the AMSTRAD PVR2 unit that will cause audio lag and loss on certain channels (Virgin1, CN and CH4).

After the upgrade has completed I suggest that you check which version of software your unit is now using;

1.Press the Services button
2.System Setup menu
3.Press Option 5, 'System Details'


This shows the same unit 9F2106 before and after the upgrade the smudged info is the viewing card number etc.

How do i update map and software data online for my trax 430



If you are used to using an atlas or other map, you probablyalready know that new maps are issued each year because of changes on theroads. The same thing applies to the maps on GPS units. This means that if youhave a GPS unit, you need to update your GPS software regularly to make surethat you have the latest information. Each GPS manufacturer makes softwareupgrades available for GPS unit owners. Here are tools and instruction below
USB cable (as tool)
1 Visit the website forthe manufacturer of your GPS unit, such as Garmin or Magellan.
2 Go to the"Support" section of the site and then the "Downloads"area. This is where the latest upgrades are available for download.
3 Log in if you already havean account or key in the serial number of your GPS unit. Typically you get onefree upgrade on your unit, which is tracked by the serial number, which is whyyou have to enter it or have an account.
4 View the latest softwareupdates once you are logged in or have entered in the serial number. If you areeligible for the free upgrade, you will see it listed with no cost. If not, youwill see a price listed by the upgrade. Prices vary by manufacturer andupgrade, but average around $80 as of 2010.
5 Download the upgrade to yourcomputer or order the upgrade disk. According to CC Electronics & Gadgets,there is no difference between the two upgrade files. If you want to do animmediate update to the unit, you should download the upgrade instead of waitingfor the disk to arrive by mail.
6 Connect your GPS unit toyour computer with the USB cable that came packaged with it. When you do, theGPS update software will launch on your computer. If you have never installedthe GPS software onto your computer, you will need to use the disk that camewith the unit to install it so that it will launch for you.
7 Confirm that you want tosync the unit with the upgrade file that you download, or on the disk if youare using a disk. This will install the upgrade to your GPS unit. When itcompletes, you will get a message on your screen letting you know that it isdone. You can now disconnect the GPS from the computer. Thanks

this is one of the perils of updating a magellan.

it sounds like the update has not taken. i suggest (if you havent already) you try the update again and if that fails, call magellan for a free replacement or repair.

Magellan will repair or replace any of their gps units rendered inoperable do to one of there updates regardless of the warranty (i assume you got this update off there site, because they will ask)

you can contact them at the number below

try a software upgrade available at find your model and download the software to a USB thumb drive then insert it into the USB port on the side of the set. enter into the menu go to "digital" select software upgrade and follow the promts. do not unplug or shut off the set until the upgrade is complete. if it doesn't recognize the software on your thumb drive try formating the thumb drive to FAT and not FAT32 reload the software and try again.
