  • Help Magellan Roadmate 3120-MU failed to update

    The Magellan Content Manager had downloaded the 4.90 update image to the following folder Magellan_RoadMate_3120_4_90_Rel1 prior to bricking the unit.

    This folder was located here for me: C:\Users\{your User name}\AppData\Local\Temp\ContentManager\update

    I copied that folder to my C:\GPS folder.

    Then run setup.exe from that folder.

    Prior to starting the update, hold the power off button until the GPS screen goes black and then power up the unit while attached to the computer's USB port. When windows asks about fixing the corrupt Drive let it fix it.

    Then start the update, it will find the unit and complete. When the unit is detached from the PC, it will finish the update process (it takes a few reboots).

    To get the Magellan Content Manager to realize the version is now 4.90 and let me perform the address book sync, I had to remove the GPS profile and then re-add it. Now I can sync the address book.

    Note the 4.90 upgrade package is only 65MB after it is zipped, so it wouldn't be hard to send to someone.

    I hope this help someone.
