I had the same problem, magellan would not give me a code for the map to just download but did agree to send me a new unit and then have me send back the old ubit after verifiying my receipt. did have to give them a credit card # to make sure I send back the old gps

SOURCE: magellan 3250 won't update
Hi, I had the same problem with my 3200. Got the update, and it bricked my unit. After 3 weeks of searching the net for solutions, all of which did not work, I called Magellan Tech Support today. Simply told them that I was updating the maps, update failed, and now the unit will not boot past the blue magellan screen with the progress bar. They asked for some information, including the email address that you used to register the product, and the serial number of the unit, as well as the map update information...which you had to register to get the unlock code. They are able to see all of this c in their tests on the unit, which of course did not work. I was then given a RA#, and account #, and was assured that I would get a pre-paid shipping label via email within 24 hours. All you have to do is pack the unit and take it to fed-ex with the label. They will fix your unit with the updated maps, and return it to you via Fed-Ex. Took no longer than 15 minutes on the phone, which beats the 3 weeks of research that did not help. Problem solved. Just call Tech Support, this is a well-known problem, and they will fix your unit and update the map. Hope this helps.

let me say this 1st because this will be the easy way to fix this assuming you tried to either run the update or ran it again after the failure. if thats the case.
im going to assume you tried to update your unit to the 4.46 update that you downloaded off the magellan site,HERE ( if you havent, i suggest you do it before continuing) and in doing so it bricked your unit.
Magellan Will repair or replace any of there gps sytems that were rendered inoperative due to their updates. they will check your account to see if you downloaded the update.
Telephone: 800 707 9971
hopefully you understand what im saying here.
should you decide to take a different route, let me know and i will help you get it up and running if possible.
