USB Driver Roadmate 800

Hi,

I just bought a new Roadmate 800, brand new. However, I noticed that the installation CD is missing, and my PC which runs on Windows Vista does not have the USB driver to allow uploading of MP3 and photos. The GPS unit works flawlessly and comes completely with all accessories.

Magellan customer support is of no help at all. Please help me to obtain the USB driver to communicate with my PC either in Vista or XP platform. Thank you.

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.

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

Magellan roadmate 800 won't boot up


Hi,

Try removing the battery and leaving it out for a long time (overnight) and replace the next day and see if that helps.

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.

No signal, is this an antenna problem ? Or is the unit not worth fixing.


it is not worth fixing,i had a 700 it worked until it loses sattlite signals.then i did my research and notice how many problems the 700. i decided to get the magellan mastreo 4000 and i bought roadmate 800,so get a newer model you will be happy that you did.
