    have a roadmate 700 and will not work after posting new location to direct to. Just stays at last address

    My MR 700, the screen lights up, but stays blank.
    None of the switches will make any change in the screen.
    What can be done?

    My Roadmate worked fine on my first business stop today. When I turned on the unit after the first stop, I got the "blue screen of death". None of the buttons would work. I disconnected and turned on the unit again. This time I was able to get to the "User #1, etc." screen but no further. Is this a flaw with the unit since I see from the many comments that others are having problems also.

As far as I understand Magellan, NOTHING IS FREE. The web site to pay for it is:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/MRM_software_v6.asp
and the cost is: $79.00
The units are licensed and the DVD can only be loaded on 1 GPS. I hope this helps and if you find something else out please let me know, I would also like to have a free update.

Free maps downlolad


If/when you've just purchased a (brand) new TomTom GPS, you can register it (at the TomTom.com website) and download the latest map (for your device) .... free ... as part of the latest map guarantee.
Whenever you connect your GPS to the TomTom website (via TomTom HOME), you'll get (free) updates to your current map version - ... but they are NOT new versions of the maps.
To get new versions of your (current) map, you'll need to purchase the update (e.g. online, on the TomTom website). Upon paying for it, you will get the activation codes, etc. for you to download, validate and install the maps.

If your GPS has lifetime maps, (after you have registered), you'll be able to connect (via TomTom HOME) to get the latest map release, without requiring any code/password.

You have to go to GARMINS web site and download the map updater program called Garmin Download Manager. to your pc - then put it on the Garmin.

Here is the download page with many of the Garmin features - I have found Garmin very good about this.

Are there free road info download available


No. If you want usefully updated maps, then you have to pay for them. Garmin do offer a "lifetime" maps subscription, but it's only for the lifetime of your product: given that most Garmin SatNav units don't last long enough to benefit from more than a couple of years worth of updates it's usually cheaper to buy the single update option, although the lifetime subscription gives you four updates per year and one-off is just a single annual update.

If your unit also needs updated traffic and camera alerts then it can be cheaper to buy a new satnav.

When i logged onto the garmin website initially it stated i was eligible for the latest maps update however once i am done registering its no longer available. what should i do?


garmin give you 60 days from the first time you use your gps to update the map for free. so if you turned on your gps august 10th, and it's now the 22th, you're out of luck.

it's from the time of gps use, not the time when you create your profile online.

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

I need an upgrade for my magellan Roadmate 760


You can download an upgrade for this unit from the Magellan website for free. Maps can be upgraded but they cost about $80, and that doesn't seem worth it to me. See if that works for you.

I brought my Magellan roadmate 760 0n 3-9-06. How do I get it up dated. The last time I try to use it It would't talk to me.


You can go on Magellan's website and they have software downloads for the operating system. If you want new maps you have to pay about $80, also available on the website, but I don't think it's worth it for this unit.
