How do I update...

How do I update my Magellan roadmate, there are just too many websites and I do not know which one to go too.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your GPS unit? How old is it?

P/n-800-0186-001, sn 0813001275632

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

What popped up? what do you mean?

Technician's Assistant: What confuses you?

I don't understand your question/s.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

None, I would just like to plug my gps in, punch one button and have it updated without having to have a Rhodes Scholarship, the unit is about 10 years old.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

No, what are you going to connect me too?
