Updating magellan gps

updating magellan gps-51

The interface has changed from Content Manager to "Smart GPS Eco" which in short, doesn't work.Apparently, before I can update my maps I need a software update which I can't get to, so no map updates.

In a rapidly changing world, a GPS device is only as good as its data.Magellan also offers subscription services for free updates during a specified period of time.While updating a Magellan GPS is very simple, a few common mistakes can lead to data errors.In the case of paid updates, Content Manager will direct you to Magellan's website where you can make a secure payment before downloading the data.Large update packages, such as maps that include new areas or considerable extensions to existing roads and highways, generally require payment.Do not shut down your computer or disconnect your Magellan GPS device while Content Manager is running.

After updates are fully downloaded and installed, wait for Content Manager to eject the device and inform you that it is okay to unplug the device.

The application may also ask you to update your device software before looking for maps, which Content Manager will download from Magellan's servers and install on your device.

In addition to free software updates for your device, Content Manager is a clearinghouse for the latest Magellan GPS map updates.

Content Manager is a program you can download and install for free from Magellan's website.

Once installed, Content Manager may alert you to software updates and ask that you download a more current version.
