Updating a magellan gps
I won’t repeat the steps for installation, because they are available in the read-me file when you download the Mio Pocket software.
However, there is a remark to be made about the 1424: At this point, before I could copy over the Mio Pocket files, I needed to clear room.
This means it cannot be hooked up to your stereo, it cannot sync with your phone, or go on the internet (wirelessly), and without an SD card slot, there really isn’t a lot of room to store any music or video.
See, I really did check to see if I could modify it anymore, but there are no places for a headphone hack or SD slot. A lot of the programs do not run correctly with this software for me.
I configured the GPS through all the steps I could in the read-me, and started it up.
The read-me said that the device should begin to load, and prompt me whether I wanted to boot the built in Navigator software, or run Mio Pocket.
Regardless, I began the quest, hoping that I would be able to figure something out.Modern day GPS devices are essentially miniature computers.Many have a compact version of Windows, called Windows CE, installed, and the GPS software runs over top of it.It enables you to access stored addresses and keep the device up to date, without any difficulties.
Magellan Content Manager is free and it is available for all popular Windows and Mac OS X.
It should go to USB mode in about 5 seconds, allowing you to restore the files.
