Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I will suggest a procedure... but is it the sites that are not responding, or the Magellan device? and if it is the Magellan device, let me know whether (if you have a Windows computer you are trying to update it with) ...whether or not it shows up when connected, when you go to

Control Panel

on your computer, then to

View Devices and Printers (in the Hardware section of Control Panel) ?

Let me know by Reply To Expert, and I will advise you as to what to do.
