You can change the maps in your magellan by downloading the content manager software for your pc. Go to magellans website, download the software to your pc. Then connect your Roadmate to your pc and update the maps. Here is a link to the software for your pc:

After your update is done, log into your account (register and create on first if you do not already have one) and choose purchase maps.

They have north america, south america and other types of maps available for purchase. the cost is $ 39.95 to $ 79.95 depending on the subscription you choose.

Buy the map you want, then download it to your magellan using the usb cord connection with your computer.

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.
