Magellan uses a firmware application you install on your computer called Content Manager to manage updates.
When you plug a Magellan GPS device into your computer's USB connection, this application communicates with Magellan's servers to check for new updates and install them on your device.
Once installed, Content Manager may alert you to software updates and ask that you download a more current version.
Content Manager will look for any available updates for your device and allow you to select and install them.
The application may also ask you to update your device software before looking for maps, which Content Manager will download from Magellan's servers and install on your device.
