Language on Magellan Roadmate 300

I bought a Magellan Roadmate 300 and the language is in French. I do not have the software. Is there any way to change the language to English without the software?

Re: language on Magellan Roadmate 300

You'll have to obtain a copy of the Magellan Roadmate manager disks, load them into your computer, connect the GPS to your computer using the USB cable and the use the "Roadmate Manger settings" to change the language.

SD Card for magellan 300,Can I use any card on it? I've just got it as a gift without the card. Is there any website where to buy it?

The Magellan Roadmate 300 and 300R both require preloaded map data to be supplied from an SD card. You can't just pop any card into the slot and get it working. It requires a card of 2GB or less loaded with Magellan mapping software. Magellan provides nationwide maps and regional maps. The 300R was a regional unit while the 300 included a national basemap.

If you have a model 300, you can still use the highway basemap to get routing from city to city but you will not have detailed address routing at the residential street level unless you insert an SD card with Magellan software. If you have a 300R model, the unit will be useless without the Magellan software on an SD card.

Magellan doesn't seem to offer much software support for this unit any more and the maps are difficult to find.

How do i change the language to spanish on my magellan roadmate 1200?

Now, based on what you told me I understand that:
· You want feature information.
· You want to know how to change the system language
RoadMate 1210, 1220, 1340, 1440, 1470
  1. From the main menu screen select the Settings icon (has a wrench and a screwdriver in an X formation)
  2. Select the option labeled "Sistema"(Spanish)/"Systeme"(French)
  3. Select the optino labeled "Lenguajes"Spanish)/"Langues"(French)
  4. Select your preferred language setting
  5. Confirm your selection by selecting the Back Arrow on the bottom left hand corner of the screen
  6. Unit will restart to make the language change

My new Magellan Roadmate 300

You have to have the two cds that come with the unit to download onto your computer. If you can find these then there is a sd slot on the bottom of the unit covered by a small rubber cap .The sd cards must be the ones that will work on a magallen .You can go to magallens internet site and get a list of the ones that will work.

Magellan 300 Roadmate

I think you are going to struggle here.
It may be possible to put the sounds back using the Magellan RoadMate PC application it is mentioned in the manual and on the web site but I cant see where to obtain it!

You are not alone, there is a thread here with people complaining about their receiver and trying to find the software.

A reviewer here is actually using the software note the red warning about formatting the internal memory!

I checked P2P to see if the software was floating around but all I found were maps.

Sorry for all the links but I think you'd better be informed that this ain't a quick fix and contacting Magellan may be the only way.
