Re: Up date

Yes - Firmware 6 (5.37) and 'new' maps.. BUT I have had a heck of a time trying to get all the relevant info from magellan - TERRIBLE SUPPORT.

I am now buying a TOTOM GO 720T for less than £300 vs more than £800 that I paid for the Roadmate. The TOMTOM has maps and cameras preloaded and does auto update from a cradle linked to PC.

Bin the Magellan, you won't regert it.

"Unable to launch application" error message

This is a software problem that requires the Magellan GPS software on your GPS device to be updated the latest version, or sending the GPS device in for repairs and updates.

I would recommend sending the GPS device in for repairs since many people have had no luck updating the software when having the Unable to launch application error.
