    does anyone have a free update for the magellan roadmate 2000?

  • iam4him Oct 25, 2008

    magellan has a new update ou on cd that only costs 80.00. However that is about what my unit is worth. Does anyone have the new cd for map updates yet? If so would you be willing to sell it used? A copy would work also. Post some contact info and share the wealth.

Your best bet is to contact Magellan directly. Their website is not the easiest place I've ever navigated. I did not see a specific listing for the Roadmate 2000, but when I queried them about upgrades for your unit, the response was Roadmate 2000/2200T. Manuals are available, but again nothing was noted about supporting the 2000.
I've provided their phone # is below. Good luck.

There are no updates or upgrades for this unit. I spent 2 hours with "tech support" trying to understand the India version of English and finally was able to acertain that the unit is what it is no way to update the maps or the unit. I will never buy magellan again. What a waste of money - especially since the power supplies go dead after about 10 months.

THEIR ARE NO UPDATES FOR THE ROADMATE 2000, DUE TO THE FACT I THINK IT'S THE LEAST EXPENSIVE GPS MAGELLAN OFFERS AND IT WOULDN'T BE COST EFFICIENT TO MAKE UPGRADES AVAILABLE. I OWN A 2000, AND OCCASSIONALLY I GOOGLE THE FOLLOWING "MAGELLAN ROADMATE 2000 UPDATES," AND THE 1ST HIT YOU GET WILL TELL YOU IF/WHEN UPDATES WILL BECOME AVAILABLE IN THE FUTURE.

Had my Garmin sat Nav for some time, can I find out if full price was paid as it was a present?


Hi,

You can use this google shopping link to determine which (by model) is your gps. This will help you determine the value.

https://www.google.com/search?q=GARMIN+SAT+NAVIGATOR&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=GARMIN+SAT+NAVIGATOR&tbm=shop

there should be an option on the gPS for Apps.

I hope this is helpful for you.

No map info on nuvi 205w


Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

Just downloaded the latest update. After turning it back on, unit says "No Available Maps" Prior to update the unit worked perfect.


Go into the menu, look for the map set under settings. select the one you just downloaded or whichever is the newest map.


Follow this to get there.

Owners manuel for Navman MY50T


Hi Raymond,

You can download a free copy of your owner's manual on this page:
gps-devices/user-guides/">http://www.navman.com.au/car-gps-devices/user-guides/

If you need to update your maps, check this site for downloading instructions and downloadable ISO files for installing the more current maps. They may or may not be free, depending on your previous map purchases. They also sell the upgrade software, but its a little pricey. They are located in Australia.

Upgrading Maps with Instructions:
gps-devices/mapping/">http://www.navman.com.au/car-gps-devices/mapping/

I hope this gives you the info you need. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

When i turn my nuvi 255w on i get the fallowing message. no detailed maps found that support routing. the nuvi cannot be used without them.


It sounds like the map file is missing or corrupted or the route you want to use is just outside of the covered area of the normal maps.

If the unit is less than 60 days old you can update the map by connecting it with the usb cable to your pc and going to garmin and then running the update. Past that they want you to pay.You can download free map files for certain locations to your sd card. The localized maps ie just for one country or portion of it have much more detail than the stock internal map. You may need to look at purchasing one of those to get enough detail. I just used one for Fiji and it even had all the back streets on it. If you are in Canada or the US or Europe they will even have much more info.

I would call the toll free garmin support number and run the problem down to them. They can check your serial number and let you know the options. They should be able to tell you what map to use/get if thats needed.

I have no maps on the screen its like i lost all the data. it says there are no roads near this start point. every thing else works mp3, settings, volume, bluetooth, etc.


it sounds like you may have just deselected the maps.

go to tools settings map then map info(bottom of the screen)

check that there is a tick next to your mapset if not just tap the name of the map and you should be sorted out.

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.
