Re: How do I change the country selection on my Magellan...
I've never crossed the boarder with a GPS unit before but to change countries it's MENU USER OPTIONS REGION I tried to enter a US address but the unit wouldn't take it BUT if you change regions enter lower 48 states then you enter a US address and it will take you there. I just tried it with my 4210 it accepted the address and showed the routing

Where to...... Address...... on Bottom of screen Change State / Province press it and enter
***FYI*** you shouldn't have to change it once you program your destination to Canada.....I input my destination and thats it... once there it takes you anywhere you want to go as long as you have the North American NT Maps you should have no problems....I go there regularly with mine
How are you entering it? You should go to "Where to?", "Address", then "Spell State/Province". Enter "On" and the unit should pull up "Ontario". Press this, then press "Spell City/Postal Code". Type "Ot" and the unit should pull up several cities, including "Ottawa, ON" Press this, then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.
Your unit should be preprogrammed with US addresses as well as Canadian addresses. When entering the address, you should press "Where to?", then "Address". The next screen should show you the province you are in, and the button below that should say, "Spell State/Province". Press this, then enter the US state in which the address you want to navigate to is located, then the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps, or if you are still having trouble.
Magellan Technical Team provided to following response to me:
To enter an address from Canada thru postal code, you need to change the region setting to Canada. Kindly follow the steps below to change the region settings:
Turn on your Maestro 3225.
Tap “User Options”.
After changing the region setting to Canada, under “Enter Zip Code” on the Enter Address menu you can type in the postal code of the location that you want to go.

After pressing Where To?, then Address, you should see a screen that says the state you were last in, and below that it should say something to the effect of Enter State/Province. Press this, then enter the Canadian Province you wish to navigate to, such as Ontario. You should then be able to enter the rest of the Canadian address as usual.
