Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Cann't switch from Europe to USA data.

I have bought the Magellan 700 in US on June 2005, S/W Version: 4.31 of 01/12/2005. Paid for European maps.
I go to Configuration, to Map Regions, choose US and Canada, push Switch, after a message the device is turning out. Then when I turn them on it staies on Europe again.

    These are not answers on my problem: to read manuals, to buy new products, to upgrade and so on!!!
    Way my unit does not work for US and Canada? What to do? How to fix it. Anybody can be such an "expert" who advises: Go and buy a new product.
    Sorry!

    There is no troubleshooting answering main troubles with switching data from Europe to USA in user guide. It does not look like a help from you.
    Thanks.

I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1350 in the states and I am in Germany and it does not have any maps here for Europe


If you purchased it in the USA, it will have USA maps. If you purchase a Garmin GPS in Europe, it will have European maps. You will need to purchase additional maps for your USA unit to use it in Europe. Go to the garmin.com website and you can purchase the maps there.

I need to put a scotland map on my garmin.what do I do ?


The map of Scotland comes with the "UK and Ireland", "Western Europe" or "Europe" maps so if you buy any of the three you'll have the map of Scotland. You can buy one of the maps by going to www.garmin.com and logging into myGarmin. Click on the myMaps tab at the top of the screen and then on "Purchase more maps" Follow the prompts.

Before buying the map, if you have a satnav bought in the USA you need to check if it will work in Europe. Most of the USA garmin nuvis will not work in Europe with the exception of those that come with both European and American maps.

I am traveling ion europe and have purchased a set of european maps for my nuvi 1300. i need to transfer the maps from the sd card to the nuvi 1300


If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.

Nuvi 660 MapSource


Henry,

You cannot replace American maps with European maps.  Garmin does this in order to protect the European retailers.  The European SD card eliminates the need to load the maps into the 660, however, if you need to use the card slot to store extra data such as MP3s then you might be better off buying the 670.
