Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Magellan RoadMate 5045-LM 5-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Maps and Traffic (Electronics)
Don't buy Magellan if you have Windows XP and you ever plan on upgrading the maps and software. I have spent over 6 hours trying to install Magellan's content manager. Content manager needs to have .net framework installed first. I had .net V1.1 installed, and Content Manager did not work. I upgraded to .net V4 and it still does not work. Phone support from Magellan was of no help. Magellan suggested I call Microsoft for technical support. I'm not going to spend $50.00 with Microsoft only to be told it isn't their problem. What can I do but send the unit back?
I never had this issue with my Garmin or my TomTom.

As far as your .net problem goes there's a good chance it requires the 2.0 or 2.2 version. Even though you installed v4.0 many times software created before that version does not recgonize the correct version on your PC. I test software for a living and have seen this kind of problem many times. Good luck.
