Question about Magellan RoadMate 360 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan RoadMate 360

I have reformatted the Internal Memory the GPS Receiver now does not have sound, language settings, and maps.

I need to re-install the files of the Magellan Roadmate 360 Manager Software Program (that is not included in the box).

I have asked assistance to Magellan, but they just want me to send them the Unit for repair, while the Unit is working, and it needs only to re-install the software on it.

Can you help me to locate such software for download?

    I've got this problem too,but only lost the sound,everything else still works.
    As suggested,I've downloaded the latest firmware,Ver. 1.81 which was already installed in my RM360 but am reluctant to re-install, since I see Magellan cautions against doing so.
    Don't want to make things worse,once is enough.

Magellan roadmate 1412 just stop working and displayed the following messange: "SD card has been removed. Program will restart. Please insert SD Card with map"

Providing you saved the SD card info as soon as you got it, reformat the SD card and copy the files over. Or find a friend that has the same unit and copy their files. Reformat your card before also.

No sound on GPS

The internal memory was formatted. This is a catastrophic occurrence and the most common E-mail message I get asking for help. Look under Bugs on the Tips and Tricks page for some background. Before buying an RM360 on eBay, make sure that it comes with the original Magellan SD map card and not a blank one, and make sure that the original owner did not format it! A formatted unit will not speak or make sounds. Because the RM360 is a discontinued device, Magellan WILL NOT FIX THIS. If you want to attempt a reflash, see the Hacking page.

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!!

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.

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.
