Cracked LCD screen. Can I replace it myself? Where do you get them?


there fairly easy if you have a little patience..the hardest parts is getting the screen ribbon cable back on the board and not breaking or knocking the plastic locking tab off...i buy them off ebay ..search for broken ones not working, particularly one with a software problem, but has a good screen...you can buy them new for about 100.00 but you can buy a new unit off ebay for less then that, so who would buy a screen for a 100.00 when you can just buy a new one for the same price or less.

if you need step by step to replace it, let me know "before" you even remove the screws off the back..you need to remove the back cover the right way so you dont break off your usb/power port.

search ebay for as is, broken, parts or repair...theres a few on there right now pretty cheap

How do you get up to date maps for navman my55T


Start at the navman website.

I should pre-warn you that they are not very friendly. About 4 years ago I bought my mom a Navman ICN 620, after 6 months I tried to get updates and called and emailed them for about four months finally when they responded they just said they were not updating US maps for any of their previous products. Looks like they are more an international company that sells in limited quantity in the US through Radio Shack stores. I have gone back to their website about 5 times since then to see if any updates were ever added and they never did.

If its an older unit I would replace it Tomtom makes a nice unit and Magellan even has a few units with free traffic updates (depending on area)

I finally just replaced the unit for her this christmas bought her a Magellan roadmate 1470 for $150.

Just FYI most GPS manufacturers want you to pay YEARLY for their map updates and if you skip an update you may have to also pay to do a firmware update. I have a Tomtom go 720 which is 2 years old they wanted $49 for a firmware update and $99 for the map update.

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'm trying to install Magellan Roadmate 1470 on Windows Vista, and am totally lost! Any suggestions?


Hi there really isn't anything to install, register your GPS download the updated software I believe its version 2.2 for your model and CALL them within 30 days of purchase to see fi a map update is available.

  • If you wait till after the first 30 days you must buy any map updates.

When you connect the unit to your computer you can access the drive on it but its not like the TOMTOM's where it loads their software onto your computer.

Magellan Roadmate 1470 screen froze at spinning clock


Same thing happened to me. It was working fine yesterday, until I arrived at my destination, then it froze and when I restart it, it stops at the spinning clock. I'm so mad at myself for not researching the update and finding out that this is happening a lot!!
I don't think I have my receipt. It will be interesting to see if Magellan charges me for THEIR mistake!

My magellan 1470 has been used only 4r5 times an now every time i try to use it to put n a address it says it needs to restart to increase performance never gos to the address


I had a similar problem with the address book not working on a refurbished 1470 that Magellan sent me. I reinstalled the latest update and it fixed the problem. It doesn't take long to do and is worth a try. Make sure you read and follow all the instructions.

Tried to update the firmware on the Magellan 1470


Just got off the phone with Magellan East (my guess is India as I had a hard time understanding them and said "What?" 20 or 30 times) to which they said that there is no way to reboot these systems. I updated to 2.20 and it froze my GPS. I have to send my unit back to them and they are sending me a refurbished one free. I am outside the warranty period according to them but have AAA, which gave me an extra year on warranty, so they are honoring it. Give them a call at 8007079971 to get this fixed.
