the only way to get it to work is to buy the unlock code from magellan and it cost 100.00...i bought the code but it is the biggest waste of a 100.00 i ever made.....DO NOT BUY IT, youll be glad you didnt!
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
Telephone: 800 707 9971
the only way to unlock it is go to the magellan site and paya 100.00 for an unlock code.....dont do it..save yourself some grief, because youll be requesting your money back...i love my magellans but the voice reconition is a waste of money.
besides the fact that it activates just by people talking in the car (then it reroutes you) it only has like 3 commands...like one is home....i was so sick of it activating itself that i disabled it
its very annoying to say the least....
save yourself a hundred doll;ars, youll be glad you did.
Why not call Magellan's Technical Support and raise the issue of misleading advertisement. If you argue it as well as I did you will end up with YOUR OWN VALID code based on the serial number of your unit FREE OF CHARGE.
it is not a scam .then why did you bought it ,i did on my magellan maestro 4000 the firmware update and map but this unit does not come with turn by turn like the old roadmate700 which gave the option to turn on or off turn by turn voice.but what can you do that is life. regardless you must go to magellan website and do all the Upgrades and Maps
