I would try downloading the USB driver from magellan (if they offer it).  You may also be able to get the driver from C-Map USA as the do the map software for magellan.

turn off your unit with the slide switch on the top. Hold down the repeat button or the one beside the slide switch and then put the slide switch back to the on position. Then select hdd tools then format. exit out and turn the switch off and back on and it should work

SOURCE: I need a USB driver for Vista for a Magellan

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.

How do I upgrade my software for my 1430 with an apple mac computer?


hi sk_keroes

currently you cant update your magellan (or any other magellan) with a mac...you have to use Windows XP with service pack 3 or vista...some can use windows 7 but not many..i recommend finding someone with XP, because vista trends to screw around with the update..i just did my 1430 with XP and it worked great, only took about 2 minutes to go from 1.13 (or what ever it was) to 3.12

i have no idea why Magellan would leave so many mac users helpless, they must have something against apple.

Laptop does not recognize magellan 860t when connected to usb port Magellan POI file editor issues message "no unit detected".


assuming your using a known good usb cable, you need to use windows XP sp2 or greater to install any magellan. if you are using that os or greater, try a different usb port.

if that fails, restart the computer and try again.

you can also try and reset the 860 using the reset on the top and see if that will help.

if none of those work, turn the reset button to the off position till the 860 goes off then plug in the usb cable and restart the 860.

if your not using windows XP sp2 or greater, hopefully you have a friend that does.

some software only works with XP go to megellan web sit you may need to buy the update for vista and windows 7 on CD. and if you plug the GPS into a PC that doesn't have XP it could crash or not work at all

Cant download magellan driver for 2000 have new software but cant install driver i have windows vista


there is no specific driver for your gps, windows installs this automatically.

assuming the gps is working correctly, it will be installed automatically.

try another usb slot on the computer..if that doesnt work, reboot the pc and try again. if neither of those suggestions work, find a friend that is running windows XP.

vista should find it but youll probably have better luck with xp

My computer not reading device1430 magellan


assuming your using a windows xp or 2000 os, try another cable if you have one..turn the gps off, plug in the usb cord and restart the gps. if that fails, if the cable is connected to a port on the front of the computer,move the usb cable to a rear port on the computer and try the previous way i just explained.

if those fail, disconnect all usb devises connected to the pc and restart the computer and try again. (always use a rear port on the pc if you can)
