I just bought a Sanyo easy street 4050 GPS device and the "navigation software" disk that came with it won't run on my PC. The "intruction manual" opens and runs just fine though. Help I'm moving in less then a week and need this darn thing!!
I Installed my update the day I got it, using Vista. It works fine. My only complaint is the speaker is not loud enough, and the mic is not strong enough for anybody here me on the phone using the bluetooth feature.
The gps is already pre-loaded with the info on the CD - I found this out the hard way...I ran the CD and got a blank screen and cannot use it at all. I contacted Sanyo and they informed me that I crashed it. Now I have to send it to them for repair or replacement. I didn't even get to use it once! I am disappointed that the instructions were not clear about the CD. Now it's back to old fashioned maps for my trip - yuck!

I ended up in the same situation and called (800) 421-5013 for help. The gentelman who assisted me said that how the DVD holds the same data as factory Sanyo 4050 GPS and upgrading has locked your device. To resolve the discussed issue one have to delete everything (plug-in your device via USB cable --> My Computer --> Removable disk) and install fresh copy onto your navigation device via that DVD. Tried it with NO @!@ JOY

I had the same problem and what , I did 1st is in my lg shine phone is , I set a diffrent pass code , The on the gps , I reinstalled the back up disk and or reloaded the info for the gps after that do every thing you see on the gps . When you see your main screen got to comunacations turn on bluetooth have it look for your cell phone but use the 0000 code and it work .
I got the chance to talk to 1st navteq and they requested that I speak with sanyo, then I got the chance to talk to sanyo customer service who couldn't offer any help other than asking me to wait till December or January when their version of 2009 map upgrade will be made available.There was one interesting revelation I kind of found out on Garmin 770 too; the same addresses could not be plotted or navigated by this also so I think it is a common factor and these are all somewhat new addresses of new developments. My suggestion will be wait till 2009 map upgrade is made available.
Yes - bin the Magellan - I have a Roadmate 700 and just bought the updates but to get cameras loaded is a major hassle and Mag Support just do not respond... what a waste of money my Magellan has been, cost over £800!
Am now buying a Tomtom 720T with cameras preloaded - it does an auto update each time yu sit the unit in a cradle attached to your PC.
