Sync up with your computer while having the maps on dvd. Also, you might want to be running the software on the dvd. You may be able to find the maps on ebay for cheaper, not certain though.

How do you enter coordinant into GPS to find a

the 1212 will not do what you want it to do...its just not capable of taking longitude and can get copy of your manual for your 1212 here

.probably the easiest way around this problem, is to get the address somehow (was there a phone number provided with the rv location list)

if you know the approximate location, you can use google maps to zoom in and get a street address
google maps here

you could also use google earth if you have it..if not, you can get it here very cool even if youll only use it once.

you can enter longitude and latitude in google earth

let me know if you need more help

good luck

Megellan 3100 will not diplay the map in map mode. All other features work. The unit powers up OK. Can access menues and other screens. It appears to have a problem with the internal data base as well....

Often a hard reset does not help in this type of problem You may need to reinstall or redownload the maps data as it sounds like it has either deleted itself or become damaged

A friend gave me a used Megellan 760. Where can i obtain some free websites to download us maps

As far as I understand Magellan, NOTHING IS FREE. The web site to pay for it is:
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.

You can find it here:

You may also want to know that there is a MAJOR firmware update avaiable for your device.. It looks like it would make your GPS a lot faster and more accurate. You may want to take care of that update too while you're working on your device. The update can be found here:

Update maps for Tom Tom Go 700, including those for East Europe

Even when you do that it doesn't really update it just updates the software so that it looks like you can update the maps but when you touch to update it just tells you, you have to get an updated map for about $100.00 US. This is bull because you pay upward of 400.00 for this GPS. Then you have to pay pay and pay out of pocket over and over again. So there should be a way to update the map without coming out of pocket every year. The really funny thing is that I got mine about 1.5 years ago and the maps were about 3 years old if not more. Now they even want money to update POI now. Which they probably charge the owner of a business to have his address and number available for the consumer that has this line of GPS available? Tom Tom should probably take a look at other brands like Garmin for instance and see why they are doing so much better in sales because there maps are better. But like any computer its always the software that make it or breaks it in this market.....

Roadmate 700 error message "No map data on hard drive"

Did the update fail? Sounds like it. You might want to try the update again.
