Magellan Roademate 5045 frozen on

I had exact same 'Magellan 5045 frozen' problem. Here is how I fixed it. Go to www.magellangps.com/contentmanager. Download and install Magellan Content Manager. Plug in your GPS. If content manager does not activate automatically, start it manually, like any other windows program or by right clicking on its icon. You will be asked to register your device and its serial number, etc. After registering, if Content Manager fails to take you directly to the download location for your device, along the top of the Magellan web pages you will see a set of tabs, one of those is 'Support'. This is a pull-down menu. Select Manuals and Software update. This then takes you to their 'Support' web page. On the support web page, click on the 'Manuals and Software Downloads' button. This will take you to a page where you will be asked to select from four Download Categories. For the roadmate 5045 and similar gps intended to be used in an auto, select 'Magellan Vehicle Navigation'. This will take you to another page where you will have to select from three product series. For the 5045 series, select 'Roadmate Series'. This is another pulldown where you will have to select your product number, e.g., Roadmate 5045. This will finally take you to a page where you can select software and map updates. You will have to connect your Roadmate gps to your computer via USB and you will have to register. It is confusing because you will get incorrect and irrelevant statements like your device failed to register. It is somewhat quirky but if you follow the instructions and you have a wideband cable or FIOS internet connection, the upgrade to the software and the maps takes about 30 minutes. Do unplug your RoadMate from the USB unless asked to do so by the Content Manager program. After the software and maps update, the Roadmate 5045 worked like better than new for me.

My Magellan RoadMate is stuck on error msg. Clicking ok does nothing. Will disconnecting battery, motherboard, HD, or anything else an elect tech like myself can do to fix? No experience in GPS.

Disconnecting power then reconnecting could cure it. The nature of the error message could give a clue as to what's wrong.

I have a Magellan eXplorist610. Is there a down loadable User Manual Does my unit need to be sent in for updating

The manual is available as a PDF in several places. One source is the Magellan service site: https://service.magellangps.com/M0100/MagMainFrame.aspx . All of the available software and manuals for the Explorist 610 (US) are listed here: https://service.magellangps.com/M0100/MagMainFrame.aspx / The Australian version of the manual is here: https://www.magellangps.com.au/upload/support/Magellan/eXplorist_510_610_710_User_Manual.pdf . Another source is https://www.carid.com/images/magellan/gps-systems/pdf/tx0610sgxus-user-manual.pdf . Manuals Lib has both the User Manual and Quick Start Guide: https://www.manualslib.com/products/Magellan-Explorist-610-2576611.html . Follow the link for either document and click on the Download button, near the top of the screen, to get a PDF version. There will be extra steps involved. I found a firmware update here: https://service.navman.com/M0100/F0110_DownLoad_Faq.aspx?bullid=AllBull&faqid=100129827 . If you use the software from the above support page, you can add maps up to the available memory on the Explorist (and the SD card (at least 4GB) you purchased and installed) yourself. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I'm setting up my 7771t-lm Magellan roadmate and the time and region is wrong. how do I change to the right time and region.

I looked for an online manual, and I did not see how to get to the settings part of the menu, and to change the time and timezone. On the last page of the online manual, there is a toll free number for support that you might want to try. (I am avoiding posting phone numbers on FIXYA due to the heavy volume of spam being posted here with fraudulent and bogus phone numbers.) https://service.magellangps.com/M0100/DownLoad_File_113418_America%20MAGELLAN_English%20Magellan.html
