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!

How to find the route instruction on tomtom go


Assuming you already have specified where you wish to go, and the device shows the map (of your current location) on the screen,
you can touch the screen to see the MENU screen ... then look for (on the Menu screen) a browse map option, and you'll see the route (to your destination) displayed.
If you're looking for a list of turn by turn text instructions, e.g. turn right to XXXX street, go for NN miles, etc. you may not find it displayed on your TomTom device.

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So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.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.

Magellan roadmate 800


There are various reasons this could be happening. To start eliminating the main causes, go to the Magellan site and create a profile for yourself. You will than be able to download the latest firmware update and the newest maps. This will fix connectivity issues and at the same time give you the latest and greatest of what your device has to offer.

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.

Mapping starting point to destination.


From the "Where To" menu choose Settings > Navigation > Route Preference > This is where you can choose a Faster Time or Shorter Distance and also Off Road. Off Road is used to create a "Straight line" or "Direct Route" This option will NOT follow the roads.

Most will use Fastest and also make sure the Vehicle type is correct.

Audio turn by turn instructions not functioning -Magellan Roadmate 2000


I am having this same problem. My Magellan was frozen on an old route. I had to completely reset it. This deleted all of my old saved information. Since I did this, it has been mapping correctly, but there is no audio. The volume is turned all the way up. Can you help me fix this problem?

How do I recd instructions to proceed to route


"proceed to route:" means that the road you are now on is not part of the maps installed. You can get this when in a Mall parking lot or a new home sub division.

Simply put the GPS is saying to you, "I don't know how to get to a road I know from here so you need to get to it yourself once we are on a known road I'll start giving you directions"
