Magellan RoadMate 6000T Software Update 1.22

Traffic Subscription

The issue regarding the calculation of traffic subscription expiration date has been fixed. Upgrading to version 1.22 will avoid any possible cancellation of your current subscription.
The color scheme of the Traffic "T" icon has changed. This icon, located in the bottom right hand corner of the navigation screen, indicates signal reception from the traffic message channel (TMC). The color scheme has changed from fours colors (black, red, yellow, green) to two colors (green and red). These colors will appear under the following conditions:


The traffic icon will be green when the receiver is activated, the FM antenna is plugged into the traffic cradle and it is searching for a TMC signal. It will remain green in search mode and once a traffic event has been received or a signal has been received and locked.


The traffic icon will be red when the receiver cannot lock on a traffic signal. The unit will continue searching for a traffic signal but will remain red.

TMC indicator: With the TMC traffic icon you can get the status of your Traffic Message Channel (TMC) by simply touching the icon to display the status - station number, provider, signal quality, signal detected.

Live Alerts: The triangle shaped live alert icons which display traffic incidents have been enhanced to include more detail. While viewing the map screen, the Live Alerts will automatically appear on your active, highlighted route and now includes both direction and distance information to the incident. Incidents not on your active route that appear on the map screen will display direction of the incident. For example, slow traffic on I15 North.

Live traffic alert indicators and pop up messages that automatically appear on your active route have been increased to two seconds.

Traffic alerts that have accumulated on the map screen will now clear from the screen once the TMC accessory is disconnected.

TMC has been changed to read as Traffic in the Navigation Options menu.

Music Player

No changes.

Picture Viewer

No changes.


In the Destination screen the "select address" option has been changed to "enter address".

Fixed issues with the repeat button.

On the Previous Destination screen, "Edit" has been changed to "Save" when entering and saving an address.

When in an active route you can press the view button to vview the Manuever List and go back to the active route by pressing the x in the upper right hand corner.

Additional Improvements

Resolved the issue regarding the receiver changing to night mode during the day. Resolved incidence of freezing when resetting unit. When the receiver goes into suspend / resume mode, the duration has been reduced from 5 to 2 sec.

"Cancel guidance" function now reads as "Cancel Route". The following prompts" Yes, No, Route and Trip now enable you to cancel current route (yes), return to route (no), modify the route (route) or modify the trip (trip).

Issues with the automatic volume function not working properly have been resolved.


  • Doesn't look much different that 1.21. Wish they would update the Maps though. Found problems in the Charleston SC Maps and a road in Southern MD that have been here for years is not there. Sent a message to Magellan (LOL) about this. But not holding my breath....

    Amazing, Received an update in less than 24 hours;
