I have a Roadmate 1700 that just boots up to a screen that implies that I need to connect it to a computer. I figure it needs a firmware update. I downloaded content manager but I've been getting "server busy" for five days now and I cant update that way. Magellan CS says they can't provide me with a direct download of the update, so I come here asking if anyone can upload ANY version of the RM1700 update so I can continue using this GPS.
If you've ever done an update to your 1700 then it's possible that you still have the update files on your computer. type %temp% into your run box and it'll take you to your temp folder. In that folder you should see a folder named "content manager" in that folder should be the update files.
Another way I can get these is just copy your files (minus the maps) from your device, zip them and upload them.
I just bought a Magallen 1700MU and updated it...I also have an older Mag 1700. My computer will not pickup the older 1700 when its plugged in with the micro usb connector. I copied all the files from the new 1700 to my computer. The older unit has miopocket installed on a 4g micro sd card. it works using the micro sd card and when i select gps it boots up like any magallen 1700. My question is can I copy all the new 1700mu files to a sd card and will it or how can I re-write the files to the older 1700 so i operates like it did when it was new. Yes I'll share the files but I want to fix mine too. SO some help getting my older unit to copy the files would be a start :)
I got it working fine now...So now I have two 1700 roadmate. and yes the new firmware works great on my older unit. The one thing I did notice was that the gps trip routeing was better in my older unit before the upgrade. The new one routes me to some weard routes and is missing some roads the older map version had... go figure... my mexico map still worked onmy older magellen after the upgrade I was glad of that too, I go there each year... crazy to do so but I've always been a bit crazy :)
