    Well, it appears that your unit does not have that option to announce street names with every turn. You would have to upgrade to the next model up in order for that option to work.

Where can i download up to date maps for free for my magellan roadmate 800


You have to first go online and search Magellan Contact Manager to download that software to manage your device. Once that is done, you connect your device and register it. Then on the menu choose Help and "check for updates". There will be a scan and the available updates for software, maps etc will show, as will their cost if any.

My Magellan Roadmate app on my iphone no longer has a voice telling me to turn left, then turn right, everything else works.


In the magellan app, select the Menu button in the middle at the bottom:
select the configuration icon at the same position, represented by a wrench and a screw driver
select voice languages and choose your preferences of voice, you should hear an example of the voice.
if you dont, turn up the volume, switch the mute slider, or disable bluetooth if you have a bluetooth device in your vehicle that you have recently paired to.

I have a Magellan RoadMate 800 want to update


there is a firmware update (2.12) for your 800, you can download it HERE then just follow the directions to update your unit...the link above it for the 800 north american version, so if you have the Europe version, just got to the support page and select your unit.

you must register your magellan on their website before they will let you download anything.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.

Garmin 265 W won't speak street names


Hi,

Below is the procedures for setting the languages...

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.
Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices.

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

The pre-recoreded voices (those without a persons name)
have a limited vocabulary and (do not speak names of locations or streets)

Text language- change all on-screen text to the selected language,
changing the text language does not change the language of user entered data
or map data, such as street names.

Keyboard- select the keyboard for your language,
you can also change the keyboard language mode from any keyboard
by touching the mode button

Adjusting the volume levels
From the "menu" page touch "volume"
to adjust the volume.

To adjust the volume levels for the media player
and the navigation prompts,
please click.

Tools > settings > Volume > Restore
Restore will, restore to origional volume levels.


Regards
Richard

Magellan Roadmate 1412 abruptly stopped recognizing street names


Just a suggestion, try reseating the data (SD) card.  You can carefully pry up the cover (it is plastic with glue on the bottom.  Then pull it up then push it back in to make sure it is seated.

Yes - bin the Magellan - I have a Roadmate 700 and just bought the updates but to get cameras loaded is a major hassle and Mag Support just do not respond... what a waste of money my Magellan has been, cost over £800!
