I have a roadmate 3045 I installed the software update

Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a roadmate 3045 I installed the software update through their smartgpseco.com and then the map update I just purchased, I am heading on a road trip tonight, however lost power during the update and now it says insufficient space and wont finish the update, and the GPS now will not boot also a logo with a circle spinning.

Technician's Assistant: Did you download all the necessary software for the update (e.g. Garmin Express or WebUpdater)?

Through their smartgpseco.com

Technician's Assistant: How's the Internet connection while updating? Have you tried restarting your computer and trying the download again?

Power came back on which rebooted the system, and as I said, it will not do the update from where it left off - says insufficient space, and will not boot as a gps.

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

Not that I am aware of
