Do not shut down your computer or disconnect your Magellan GPS device while Content Manager is running.

Head back to Magellan's Web site and click the tab labeled Maps and Software.

You'll be prompted to input you device's model number or supply a serial number.

To download new data from Content Manager, make sure your Magellan GPS is fully charged, power it off and connect it to a computer running Content Manager with a USB cable.

If you have not already done so, Content Manager will ask you to log in and register the device.

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.

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.

If you don't have a Magellan Profile, the software will link you to Magellan's Web site where you can register.
