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.

Hi,

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

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.

Hi there

I think it may be a graphics problem. May be the XP drivers are not compatible with your machine graphics card.
You could try this to solve it ...

From the web, possibly on another PC that's got the internet, download the graphics driver for your machine and save it to a USB disk.

Once the set up is complete, try booting into safe mode (press F8 on boot, then select boot into Safe Mode)

Now try running the driver from the USB disk (or copy it to C: drive first then run it).

Pc doesn't recognize cd drive


Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Can you tell me what brand/model of drive you got, and is it external or internal? Also, if it came with a CD for installation, was that run? It is likely that you need a new driver for it, and if you can give me the exact information, I could assist in locating the driver if you need further help. Thanks for rating FixYa!

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.

X83 printer


If you bought a new PC did it come with Vista? When you downloaded the driver did you make sure it matched you OS. You can try again by adding new printer so you will have two of the same drivers in your printer file. Normally all you need to print is the printer driver.
