  • kaos17403 Feb 27, 2008

    I'm glad to see i'm finally getting answers however I know where to buy maps and upgrades. I am looking for an over ride for the password on my specific roadmate 800 or how to set the system back to it's origonal factory settings does anyone know how?

  • kaos17403 Feb 27, 2008

    there is nothing on the web site for the device only software and i would rather not ship it to them it takes too long thank you.

  • kaos17403 Feb 27, 2008

    i'm sorry your frustrated but i want to unlock the device not new maps or software I looked on there before i posted it on this site. the only thing i can do at your link is send it to the manufacturer. i even checked after you sent the links to me still nothing that I can see

  • kaos17403 Feb 27, 2008

I've read here that if you contact Magellan they will send a patch to reset the password by email: http://www.talkaboutsatellitetv.com/group/alt.satellite.gps.magellan/messages/6864.html

Hi,

From what I understood you want to reset the unit to cancel the passcode (security feature)? Is this correct?

There's a hidden menu on this device that contains the factory reset option. I'm not sure where it's stopping you with the password, but see if this page helps.

Good luck!

    If you cannot get to the menu, I'd recommend calling Magellan. The function is there in the menu, which means there's no hard reset button. That leaves only intervention by some utility they provide for resetting it. Doesn't cost anything to get it from them though.

    Create an accounting on Magellan's website and start here to make your request.

    Good luck!

That's great..where are you planning on buying this, as the passcode is specific to your region.

My gps Magellan road mate 1700 has this lap top and usb cable connected to a gps on the screen and does not reboot?I have plugged to my computer and try several things but nothing happen.


On the Magellan units (I have one) for updates you have to pay or buy one on most models--I know it says free updates but I found the only way was to purchase one.

HOW DO I UPDATE THE 1412


To update your magellan roadmate is very simple. But take note, there are two (2) types of updates:
  1. Software update, which are free.
  2. Maps update, but you have to purchase them.
Either ways you will get both updates from the support link from th magellan website. For software update:
  1. first go to the website, www.magellangps.com,
  2. Place the cursor on the support link and a list will pop out,
  3. From the list select manuals and softwares,
  4. Select the manuals and software link that is on the page,
  5. You select the vehicle navigation form the list,
  6. Once you select the type some other pages come up then you select the road mate,
  7. Once you select the road mate, a list comes up, then you select the road mate 1412,
  8. Then the download link will pop up, then you click on the link to download it.
  9. Once you download it, connect your gps to the computer, then you update it from there.
Sometimes, the moment you have the magellan roadmate software on your computer, as soon as there is a latest update, it will notify you to download it for your gps update.
To update a map,
  1. You purchase the maps once they are available from magellan website,
  2. go to the website as stated above,
  3. place the cursor on the maps ans a list will come out,
  4. Select either vehicle navigation maps or outdoor maps depending on what you want to update,
  5. Then you select the product type and the product model
  6. A page will pop up with the latest map for you to download.
  7. Then you add to cart.
That way your maps will be updated.
I hope this information helped.

Road mate 700 won't pick up satellite signal


If this unit has an internal battery it may be bad, other wise I would reload the software or get a updated version of the operating software. Have you contacted Magellan?

I need voice recognition unlock code for my magellan maestro 4040! please HELP!!!!!!


before rating me as not helpful, please read the following because im not trying to be smart

first let me say this. i have a 4050 that has the voice recondition and its about the biggest rip off ive seen from magellan.. i think there is only like 4 or 5 voice options ...virtually any sound inside the car activates it (very annoying) absolutely worthless in my opinion.

the only know way to get the unlock code is to buy it and it cost about 100.00 which you have to contact magellan for it...there is no known crack for it,

if that is what your looking for..if you want to purchase it, you can contact them at the number below, but you will be calling them for your money back because it it so lame, its not worth 1.00 let alone 100.00

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT

I need a USB driver for Vista for a Magellan Roadmate 6000T


theres no specific driver for your device or vista as long as your running xp sp2 or higher, your device drive installs automaticlly. if it doesnt, there could be a few reasons why.

make sure the battery is fully charged and using a known good usb cable and assuming there is no problems with the gps (like its been formated) turn the 6000t on. (do not connect the usb cable yet)

(for people that bought one of these and cant start it, you must hold the power button for about 15 seconds)

once you enter the agreement page click ok, then connect your 6000t to your pc and wait until
it tells you, your devise is not installed.

Magellan roadmate 300 speaker stopped working


I have an extra unit. I don't have the magellan road mate manager. I would be willing to trade the whole unit if you could get me the magellan road mate manager cd. I hear there is another one that comes with it that would be great to have also. I have tried everything to get these cds but to no avail. comment here or email me at brockolson10@yahoo.com if you are willing to do this.

Reinstalling magellan road 800 on pc with out cd


You can download Magellan MapSend and/or VantagePoint from their website for free and reinstall on your computer:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/software.asp

These will let your computer talk to your GPS again.

If you need to reinstall maps, though, you can't get a new CD for free. You would have to start a customer support case with Magellan and provide proof of purchase.

Magellan maestro 4000, 4040, 4050 vs mio c220,c230,


Don't buy a Magellan. There is little to no support, and their web based support redirects to no where useful for upgrades. I'd sell you my 4040, but can't in good conscience sell it to anyone.
