When I power up the roadmate 300 says there are not maps....the drive shows that they are there ? when I connected to computer with disk asked for authorization code.....would not let me enter one...called...

Unfortunately the authorization code comes from Magellan so there is no way for us as end users to bypass it. I would call back to Magellan and ask to speak to a supervisor or manager. Someone there has to be able to provide the authorization codes, tell them you have a very popular blog and plan to let everyone know just how horrible Magellan's customer service is unless they help you. It is ridiculous that they would be holding you hostage essentially like this. I wish I could provide you with the authorization codes but unfortunately it is tied to the unique identifier from your magellan unit, and the serial number of the map software, both things that Magellan can easily check, and then provide you with the code.

I would keep calling until someone gives it to you, that is simply not acceptable.

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but noone on here will be able to give you those codes, it is a manufacturer dependent thing.

Good luck, sometimes it just takes a little persistence, and like I said, make sure you are talking with at least a level one supervisor.

Magellan Maestro 4250 2008/2009 Map Update will not update my GPS

I also had problems with a refurbished Magellan 4250. The paperwork inside said to install the 4.85 firmware update which I found would not work with Windows XP Home at least for me. I used my laptop which has Vista Ult 32 bit it updated with no problem that is so far the only solution I used.

Update problem

I just had the same problem. Called Magellan and they sent me a Repair Authorization number so I can send it in and have a one time free repair. I just ordered a new Garmin since I need the GPS now, but I will send my 800 in for repair.
