The address you want is that of your local rubbish tip - bin the magellan it's such a rubbish company these days - no support and overpriced updates.

Re: Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS problem with map update v6

If you get that address I would love to have it too. I am having a problem with a GPS that I just spend 135.00 to have fixed and now the same problem is occurring. I called, twice today after almost and hour on hold the second time, I went through two people and then was told that the customer service area was too full and I need to hang up and call again tomorrow. I could only understand about half of what he was saying, (heavy india accent) and he was just asking me questions to waste time. He had no solution, and was totally useless.

I need free updates for my magellan gps

if you are looking for map updates I have not been successful in transferring data from one unit to another. That requires their "process" experimentation on bypassing their updates on a older roadmate 700 series caused alot of pain.

If you need a firmware update that is available at their website

If you have a unit more than 3 years old don't waste money on updates the new roadmate 1430 or 1470 run about $150 and the 1 touch navigation is much better than the older software. There have also been MAJOR improvements in the GPS receiver and sensitivity is far superior to those units built even just two years ago.

My 700 gets stuck with the last map

Same problems, you have to update as far as I know and you have to update every year otherwise it will start to freeze up. It's a rip off because it's $99 a year. Does anyone know if the other GPS companies do this?

As posted in another place, it took two tries for me to install the maps. Hopefully, you already were successful and haven't visited back to update your question.

Up date

Yes - Firmware 6 (5.37) and 'new' maps.. BUT I have had a heck of a time trying to get all the relevant info from magellan - TERRIBLE SUPPORT.

I am now buying a TOTOM GO 720T for less than £300 vs more than £800 that I paid for the Roadmate. The TOMTOM has maps and cameras preloaded and does auto update from a cradle linked to PC.

Bin the Magellan, you won't regert it.

RoadMate 700/760 Version 6 update maps are over a year old!!

THE CURE for this problem is NEVER BUY Magellan again!!

After paying over £800 for an early Roadmate 700 (which failed and was replaced by a failed/recon version) then to have problems with software.. now having waited a year to get map update and version 6 firmware I find it doesn't give me Magellan Tools which was promised by Magellan Support.

After several mail queries and important qustions remaining unanswered I am buying a Tomtom Go 720T which will do all the updates automatically via a cradle linked to my PV/Internet.

NEVER EVER AGAIN a damned Magellan - great when it works but it's easier to get blood from a stone than good support from Magellan.

Megellan gps 700

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.
