Question about Magellan RoadMate 300 GPS Receiver

Loading New Map

Hi, I have always had one region loaded into my Magellan (Florida). I am going to New Orleans tomorrow and I am trying to upload the NOLA map into my GPS. I am using the Manager and everything seems to go smoothly until I unplug the Magellan and try to test it. It only gives me the option to enter a Florida address.

help. Thanks!

I don't know if this is much of a solution, but from what I understand from my extensive research on this product (I bought one online and have been trying to get updated maps), Magellan no longer supports this unit. I looked on their website to confirm, and on the "Scheduled Map Updates" list, the Magellan 300 has no further updates available. Apparently, this has been the case for the last few years.

Visit the website of Magellan for your country or their global site. Find the maps, pay for them and download to your computer. You will have access to the installation instructions. Usually you install some software by Magellan, you connect your device to your computer and the proprietary software will install them on the GPS.

Hung up magellan roadmate 760


You'll need to call customer service at 866-868-2259.

They should be able to tell you how to do an "emergency reboot". You also need to make sure you have the latest "firmware" before installing any updates.

Once region is set how do I change it on the megellan roadmate 1212?


By default, the Magellan RoadMate has the region setting for the lower 48 United States. When the receiver is turned on for the first time it may ask you to assign regions. Select the map region you want to use by tapping on the item from the list.
If you are travelling in other regions you will need to change the map region by using the following steps.
1 From the Main Menu, tap on the right arrow to access the second page of the Main Menu.
2 Tap on User Options.
3 Tap on Region.
4 Tap on the map region desired.
The Region option will display the map regions that are available for the Magellan RoadMate you are using.

Also if you want you can download the user manual from this website

visit website
or
download

Hope this helps
thanks

Map is stuck on an old location and won't change to the new location on the map


take the unit outside so that it has a clear view to the open sky, turn the unit on, then push the reset onthe side(you need a paper clip) youll know its reset once you see the magellan logo screen with the black loading bar on the bottom. let in sit outside to Aguire the satellites. this may take upto 30 minutes. if that does not work, you can try the latest update. bill

Maestro 4250 frozen after incomplete 2009 map up date


I had same problem on 3/28/09.

According to Magellan and other people who have experienced the same problem, this is terminal to the unit. It can be caused by downloading the 08/09 Magellan map upgrade, which can cause the unit to permanently lock up. Magellan is well aware of the problem, and should offer to replace your unit if you have the problem. If you elect to have it repaired, Magellan can download the map upgrade for you in the repair process. Here is a site noting the same problem: http://74.125.93.104/search?q=cache:pNLjGT-i4-sJ:forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php%3Ft%3D8958+magellan+4250+gps+stays+on+blue+screen&cd=8&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Questions for Magellan: 1) why would they sell, in 2009, gps units with old 2007 maps loaded in them, requiring the purchaser to buy a current map, and 2) if there is a problem with downloading the current maps, why is there not an advisement or warning to the installer.

Other than replacing the unit, there appears to be no "fix".

Loading Topo maps...210 says invalid base map??


To get the base map and to get your unit functioning again:
Install the firmware again:

Go to: http://www.magellangps.com/support/product.asp?prodid=1114

Or, if this doesn´t work, go to www.magellangps.com, click on"support", click on "legacy products" (left) and click on "eXplorist210 Europe" (do NOT click on "eXplorist 210 North America")

On this page click under Updates/Upgrades on "version 2.57", and follow the instructions. You will have to register your GPS, register it under a European country.

After you have installed the firmware you will have the basemap and some new windows on the GPS. Good luck and enjoy!
