GPS says "Resource not found. Please connect..."


I have a Magellan smart GPS 5390.

It's probably off warranty but it has worked reasonably well until my last update attempt. First, smartgps Eco displayed a message that my unit couldn't be updated since there wasn't enough space. So I deleted some files even though I had well over a gig of space remaining. I was then able to complete the full update to my unit. However, when I disconnected the unit from my computer, the message displayed on the unit was, "Resource not found. Please connect smartgps to smartgps Eco and update your device." I again connect my device to smartgps Eco but theres no update to update the smart GPS with.

Also, live chat and telephone support are non existent.

Has anyone else had this issue and or have a solution to this problem?

After installing new software or map updates to your Magellan GPS, you'll need to reset the device. A reset ensures that you will be able to access the updated data correctly and without system errors. Resetting can also be useful as a basic troubleshooting step if the device is malfunctioning. Your Magellan GPS has a hardware reset button that you can easily access. Various Magellan GPS devices come equipped with three different kinds of reset buttons.

1. Locate the small hole labeled "Reset" on your Magellan GPS. Depending on the model, it is located on the bottom, or the left or right side of the unit.

2. Insert a paper clip into the hole and push the reset button until the unit turns off. You should hold it for about 10 seconds.


Press the "Power" button to turn the unit on. You can now access the updated maps and other information using the GPS in the usual manner.
