Tim if you havent already sent your unit into magellin i have a 5 min fix for you.
1) plug in your magellin
2) when the auto play option pops up on your computer, click open folder to view files
3) double click the app folder
4) find FirmwareReleaseVersion.dll and delete it.
now just simply unplug your roadmate 1700 reset it and plug it back in to your compter and re download the updates. you will start with version 2.77 then version 3.11 and it should work.

    plug in your gps to your compter and when the auto play option pops up click open folder to view files. double click on the APP folder and find the FirmwareReleaseVersion.dll file and delete it. unplug your gps, reset it and plug it back into your computer. check for updates through your magellan content manager and redownload your updates. it worked for me and it should work for you.

Hung up magellan roadmate 760


You'll need to call customer service at 866-868-2259.

They should be able to tell you how to do an "emergency reboot". You also need to make sure you have the latest "firmware" before installing any updates.

Can you download philippines map to madgellan roadmate 1700 gps?


Visit the website of Magellan for your country or their global site. Find the maps, pay for them and download to your computer. You will have access to the installation instructions. Usually you install some software by Magellan, you connect your device to your computer and the proprietary software will install them on the GPS.

Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites


It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

Have you tried updating the software on your device.
Go to Magellan.com and download the Magellan Content Manger:

Once you've installed Content Manger onto your PC, connect your device to your PC using the USB cord. The Content Manager will allow you to update your 1340 with the latest software and updates which 'should' fix the problem that you're having with your unit.

Decided to upgrade my software on my roadmate 1440 to ver 2.05 Rel 3. Process appeard to work fine except during the transfer to the roadmate my pc threw a delayed write error message. when this happened...


this is one of the perils of updating a magellan.

it sounds like the update has not taken. i suggest (if you havent already) you try the update again and if that fails, call magellan for a free replacement or repair.

Magellan will repair or replace any of their gps units rendered inoperable do to one of there updates regardless of the warranty (i assume you got this update off there site, because they will ask)

you can contact them at the number below

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT
Telephone: 800 707 9971

Magellan roadmate 1430 calibration is wrong


try a hard reset again using a paper clip, insert it in the little pin hole on the side to reset the unit. if that fails, get the 3.12 update (if you havent already) off the magellan site..you must register the unit with magellan before you can download the update.
