Question about Magellan RoadMate 1424 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I updated software on my Magellan roadmate 1424 and after I had installed the updates the unit appered to get hungup and would not open operating system. I formatted it and ran the back up program thinking it would reinstall the operaing system and put it back to where it was before I started. No such luck and it would appear I have wiped the unit out. I need to know where I can get operating system and drivers to re loda onto unit

The software of the unit got wiped out when you formatted the roadmate. The reason your system gets hungup was because it is not able to carr the updates you downloaded on it. Therefore, the solution was for you to have reset the device.

Now what you will have to do is to get some help from magellan, because they are the only source you can get the operating system from. Try to contact them from their help desk of:
Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT Telephone: 800 707 9971

They would provide you with the operating system for your unit.

My magellan 1424 showes a pic of a cpu with a usb cabel and a pic of the gps and that all it showes it does nothing else


The pictures that displays on your screen is a message asking you to get your system connected to a computer, then you either update the software, download a new software for it or you update your current software.
Try to reset your gps first before you connect it to a computer. To reset your gps device, you need to hold the power off/on button for about 15 seconds, then it will restart itself, then it will load normally. If it does the same thing, then you need to connect it to a computer and download a new software for your device.
I hope this information was helpful.

I have downloaded recent update for my 1424 Roadmate and now it will not reload. The battery is fully charged and all I get is the Magellan Screen, cannot get into the program. The serial # is...


Actually it is registered with Magellan, we are an independent help site here.. just wanted to make sure you were clear there.

It sounds like the firmware was corrupted on your device when the recent update was loaded, it is more common than the GPS companies like to admit.. any time you load a new update there is a chance it will corrupt the whole device which is what has happened in your case.

You will want to contact Magellan to get them to replace the unit, free of charge of course since you have the extended warranty. Call them at 800 707 9971, however they are only open Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT

Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.

My Magellan RoadMate 1340 will power up to logo and "moving clock


Have you tried updating the software on your device.
Go to Magellan.com and download the Magellan Content Manger:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/map.asp?tab=0&PRODID=2216
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.

I'm trying to install Magellan Roadmate 1470 on Windows Vista, and am totally lost! Any suggestions?


Hi there really isn't anything to install, register your GPS download the updated software I believe its version 2.2 for your model and CALL them within 30 days of purchase to see fi a map update is available.

  • If you wait till after the first 30 days you must buy any map updates.

When you connect the unit to your computer you can access the drive on it but its not like the TOMTOM's where it loads their software onto your computer.
