After reading all online documents, I did the following and got firmware 4.91 and Map-2016 updated:
1. copied all Magellan files back from the 2nd one (should have backed up all files the 1st time before updating...)
2. right-click ContentManager icon, click Property, click Compatibility, click Run compatibility mode for Windows XP(service Pack 2), click Apply, Click OK
3. connect MagellanRoadmate 5120 to PC, the ContentManager will show the two update available options.
4. click the Software Update first and wait until it completes. Press on/off switch 5 seconds to get a system reboot.
5. connect back to PC and click download Map on ContentManager this time. Allow time to complete the download
6. Press on/off switch and allow reboot again: production Information is: basemapversion: 43, detailed version:61, software version:4.91
This new updated MagellanRoadmate 5120 is now my primary gps.
* I'm not giving five stars because of taking too much efforts to make this work
** additional notes on 9/15/16:
After recent trips around Boston airport area (after the BigDig projects road changes and etc), I'm convinced this is the ONLY gps in my car from now on ! Thus changed to 5 stars now...
I have not found a better unit, but I am not switching to single destination GPS units. I will have to try a truck/RV GPS with routing to see if they are any better.
Normal issues: Directions to turn, after you pass or are too close to take action. You should have an idea where you are heading, because many times the GPS can make mistakes and send you the wrong way. Still terrific at finding routes to a destination though.
On the road, the screen is big and the verbal directions are helpful if you are in an unfamiliar area. I did not find the menus intuitive, and particularly annoying is the lack of a "back" button. I found it easy to hit the wrong address, and then there is no easy way back to the main menu.
The big screen is a blessing and a curse. It is easy to read, but it uses a lot of room in your car and the screen blocks your outward vision. You also cannot get away from the cord because (again) there is no AC charger and the battery life is only 2 hours.
I may use this for the occasional trip into an unfamiliar area, but more likely will donate it to Goodwill. The current crop of smart phones make this technology yesterdays' news.
