Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Magellan RoadMate 5045-LM 5-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator with Lifetime Maps and Traffic (Wireless Phone Accessory)
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.
