Maps are preloaded on most units. Just charge it up for a few hours, turn it on, and you're ready to go. You will need to update it once in a while, click here. That is where you set up your Magellan account, and get your updates and upgrades.

The problem with Magellan products, is they are not compatible with Mac, Windows 8 or 10. You'll need an older operating system to connect if you're having trouble. GPS is moving to smart phones, and they just aren't making drivers anymore. You can update the maps with an SD card, you just turn it off, insert the card, and turn it on. That is the most simple way to update. Call this number to check availability of SD updates.(###) ###-####/p>
