How to defrag Roadmage 5045?

Roadmate 5045 slow after update

Magellan support was actually pretty good helping me with the exact same issue. The problem (at least in my case) was that the map files were fragmented. I tried using the Windows defragmenter, but that made fragmentation even worse! The Magellan support engineer recommended I download UltraDefrag instead:http://ultradefrag.sourceforge.net/en/index.htmlHere's what I had to do to completely resolve my issue:1. Download and install UltraDefrag2. Connect my GPS to my PC3. Move the MAP directory from my GPS drive (J:) to my hard disk4. In UltraDefrag, make sure Action > Skip removable media is not selected5. Run the optimizer (Ctrl-F7 or Action > Full optimization) after selecting the GPS drive (J: on my computer)6. Copy the MAP files back to the J: drive AFTER optimization has completedI double-checked the fragmentation after the files were copied and got 0%. After disconnecting the GPS from the PC, the unit rebooted and doing an address search no longer takes 15 seconds. POI searchs are also much faster than before.

About 6 times, my GPS has frozen at one particular location along the way. Whenever I submit a location, the GPS provides the directions and mileage for that location without acknowledging the present

Hello,Sorry to hear about the problem.We mainly support Garmin GPS products.Other than performing a reset, you may want to contact Magellan Support for assistance.

Describe your how to charge my magellan roadmate

hi crystaldehar

no, it doesnt have to be on, but does take a few hours to charge...magellan recommends using the car charger or the ac adapter to initially charge it for atleast two hours...if you use the car charger, there should be a light on the charger to tell you its working and charging your unit (provided theres nothing wrong with it)

you should also have gotten a usb cable with your unit, it will (should) also charged while hooked to your PC via the usb cable.

let me know if you need further help...HERE is your manual
