Meanwhile, your Magellan software should recognize the device and prompt you to create a device profile and name your RoadMate. By default, the software will suggest the model number, but if you have multiple devices in your household, you'll want to choose something a bit more unique.

Head back to Magellan's Web site and click the tab labeled Maps and Software. You'll be prompted to input you device's model number or supply a serial number. Once done, the site should list any available and compatible map updates.
