You have to manually reload firmware, if you get the dvd I sell on ebay you should be able to run the update file to reload, this is if wince has not been damaged... search ebay for finedrive dvd.

Finedrive is basically gone so dont count on support. looks like your firmware got corrupted, this can happen if you shut down the unit while its trying to write data to memory.

I have not seen this myself but other users reprot that the repair dvd I made can fix this, I will have one listed on ebay in the next week or so... just search for finedrive dvd.

Everything has been working fine, then turned the RW200 on and "Not find navagation software!" message, CoPilot won't run and I don't see the CoPilot.exe in the CoPilot folder?


I had the same thing happen. Apparently the built in NAND memory can become corrupted. On mine, the GUI launches, one can see the file system, and it could still play MP3's, but no longer navigate. I looked at the memory contents by plugging the device into my computer (it's a WinCE device) and the navigation files were all with corrupted names and can't be deleted or overwritten either.
I also tried file recovery software ("Recuva") but it didn't see the NAND.
UPDATE: Was able to copy and fit the navigation software from another RW200 to my desktop and thence to an SD card (except for the POI database). Was able to get the RW200 with corrupt COPILOT.EXE to open COPILOT on the card, but first it says it can't find it. Then opens to it, but it can't find any of my saved favorites. So it must look at the NAND by default for the other files and can't find them.

Roadmate is stuck at a location that we have long left. Signal is strong . Tried turning off For a while, tried changing destination but gps is not reading our movement. Help We are in the middle of...


Try a hard reset which involves finding a small pinhole on the back a pressing it with a paper clip for approximately ten seconds. It may be labeled reset but only a very thin item can press this button. If that doesn't work then you may need to call the magellan help service 1 800 707 9971

Will not lock on satellites


First go into your menu and find GPS then go to restart gps and enter and see if it will reset. If not you will need to up date your unit as I am going to have to try once I recive the one and only card that the tech has to try this. Navman has been bought out by Norhtstar and you can call 1-800-628-4487 for support. They are eastern time and I did not get their open hours but I called at 6:50 AM PST and was able to talk to a live tech for help. The card that he sent will be here next week so I will be able to try fix on the Sat after as our boat is at its summer home. If my (or your) unit is too old then he said this too may not work but first try the restart GPS. Good luck, if it does not work for me then I buy a new and better unit as there is a flat rate charge from Northstar to repair of $350.00 !!!!

Tried to update the firmware on the Magellan 1470


Just got off the phone with Magellan East (my guess is India as I had a hard time understanding them and said "What?" 20 or 30 times) to which they said that there is no way to reboot these systems. I updated to 2.20 and it froze my GPS. I have to send my unit back to them and they are sending me a refurbished one free. I am outside the warranty period according to them but have AAA, which gave me an extra year on warranty, so they are honoring it. Give them a call at 8007079971 to get this fixed.

Unit will not power up after map update.........


I installed today too. Totally dead, nothing but a backlight blue screen. This is their first update in 2.5 years and it bricked my GPS. You'd think they did it on purpose.

oops, are you holding down the home button?, that is usually the way to get to wince. if not, you will need to re-load the firmware to restore the system. you can find this in the finedigitalusa site...
