Magellan Road Mate drivers are tiny programs that enable your GPS hardware to communicate with your operating system software.
Maintaining updated Magellan Road Mate software prevents crashes and maximizes hardware and system performance.
THE CURE for this problem is NEVER BUY Magellan again!!
After paying over £800 for an early Roadmate 700 (which failed and was replaced by a failed/recon version) then to have problems with software..
Specifically, I have had the best luck with the Garmin Nuvi units.
