Question about Magellan RoadMate 300 GPS Receiver

Open Question

Need a Copy of Magellan Roadmate Manager Software

HELP - I bought a used Roadmate 300 and the CDs were missing. I contacted Magellan and they told me they were out of stock and they didn't think they were getting any more. SO basically at this point I have a GPS with US base maps only and no detailed street maps.

I think the problem is with the internal power jack which tends to break. the part is MG361213 and is available at You have to take the Unit apart and remove the old jack and resolder the new one which is a three pin unit.

Good Luck

Magellan roadmate 300 speaker stopped working

I have an extra unit. I don't have the magellan road mate manager. I would be willing to trade the whole unit if you could get me the magellan road mate manager cd. I hear there is another one that comes with it that would be great to have also. I have tried everything to get these cds but to no avail. comment here or email me at if you are willing to do this.

Help me please

I had the same problem caused by reformatting the internal memory and this is what I did which worked for me:

Make sure you remove any SD memory cards before trying this fix.

First: find the base maps (NA_BSMAP.mgi and NA_BSMAP.nlt)maps which are located in your computer in the Magellan Roadmate Manager (C:\ProgramFiles\Magellan\Magellan RoadMate Manager NA\Map\Basemaps)

Second: Connect your Roadmate with the USB cable to your computer.

Third: Plug in USB and power up your GPS. Cut and paste the two files mentioned above to your GPS (Devices with Removable Storage (example E:/). They are approximately 25 MB in size and will take a few minutes to copy.

Fourth: Unplug the USB cable and shut power off to the GPS.

Fifth: Power up the GPS and it should find the "base maps".

Good luck!!

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.

No maps found!!

Hi - I have the same model GPS but I've been unable to locate a copy of the CDs and I'd love to get a copy of them - would that be possible? My email address is

As far as re-installing he maps, here's what I've found. I think this might help:
Locate the files that are loaded on the computer.Magellan Roadmate Manager example: C:\Program Files\Magellan\Magellan RoadMate Manager NA\Map\Basemaps
Copy all files. Make sure your Roadmate is connected and click on Example E:/Removable Disk and paste them with other files. It takes a few seconds to 1 minute to transfer the 25.5 mb file so don't unplug it until it is finished.
