Question about Magellan RoadMate 2000T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Slow doing anything!

My Roadmate 2000 takes hours to map a destination, will spontaneously display a list of maneuvers, or just shut off instead of starting a route. Battery condition seems okay (it runs off a car power cord anyway and fires right up when the ignition is turned on). I keep purging the list of recent addresses to avoid overloading the memory but that no longer seems to help.

I figured out, purely by accident, that you don't PUSH the "Reset" button on the left side of the unit (as I was told by two different Tech Support "Specialists" on two separate phone calls), but rather you SLIDE IT UPWARDS, using something like a paper clip or other pointed object. Tech support had me trying to PUSH it in for almost a half hour, and then suggested I go to the extent of downloading and installing a firmware upgrade.

SLIDING the Reset switch solved the problems in seconds!

Free map update fpr magellan roadmate 2000


There is no longer any map updates or accessories available for the Roadmate 2000.
Magellan has obsoleted this unit and no longer has support for it or any accessories.
I talked to them online as well as on the phone.
So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.
And there are no sites online that has any software to upgrade maps for this unit.
So keep your plugs because they work on other units, but take a baseball bat and hit a home run with your roadmate 2000.
Thats all its worth now.

Your best bet is to contact Magellan directly. Their website is not the easiest place I've ever navigated. I did not see a specific listing for the Roadmate 2000, but when I queried them about upgrades for your unit, the response was Roadmate 2000/2200T. Manuals are available, but again nothing was noted about supporting the 2000.
I've provided their phone # is below. Good luck.

You can not erase a destination off the hard drive of your gps. When each one of the users gets full it will auto delite the oldest one.

Called Magellan tech support, According to them you can't delete previous addresses, the unit will just override old destinations as you put in new ones.
