Have you tried updating the software on your device.
Go to Magellan.com and download the Magellan Content Manger:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/map.asp?tab=0&PRODID=2216
Once you've installed Content Manger onto your PC, connect your device to your PC using the USB cord. The Content Manager will allow you to update your 1340 with the latest software and updates which 'should' fix the problem that you're having with your unit.

SOURCE: magellan roadmate 2120T too slow after updates

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.html

Here's what I had to do to completely resolve my issue:
1. Download and install UltraDefrag
2. Connect my GPS to my PC
3. Move the MAP directory from my GPS drive (J:) to my hard disk
4. In UltraDefrag, make sure Action > Skip removable media is not selected
5. 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 completed

I 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.

Loading a philippines map

Visit the website of Magellan for your country or their global site. Find the maps, pay for them and download to your computer. You will have access to the installation instructions. Usually you install some software by Magellan, you connect your device to your computer and the proprietary software will install them on the GPS.

Magellan explorist XL won't power up past a blue screen

Sounds like you got a bad update, you might be able to download an update from magellan, and put it on your sd card then load it that way to finish the update.

My boyfriend has this gps and it froze up on him around the time that the clocks went back what can I do

Try sending it back to Magellan or go to Magellans Website www.magellan.com and download their updates. You will first need to download Magellans software - then hook your gps to the pc with the usb cord.
One other thing - try a wall charger for 48 hours. I have seen this work.
