Hi,the problem with your gps device can only be solved by updating the firmware on your device,this is how you go about it;
Connect your device to your PC via a USB cable,afterwards,visit the manufacture's site to download the update software.
After downloading the update, you install and update the software on your GPS device.
please make sure you uninstall the present update on your device before you install the new one,


Thanks and take care

Free map update fpr magellan roadmate 2000


There is no longer any map updates or accessories available for the Roadmate 2000.
Magellan has obsoleted this unit and no longer has support for it or any accessories.
I talked to them online as well as on the phone.
So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.
And there are no sites online that has any software to upgrade maps for this unit.
So keep your plugs because they work on other units, but take a baseball bat and hit a home run with your roadmate 2000.
Thats all its worth now.

Once region is set how do I change it on the megellan roadmate 1212?


By default, the Magellan RoadMate has the region setting for the lower 48 United States. When the receiver is turned on for the first time it may ask you to assign regions. Select the map region you want to use by tapping on the item from the list.
If you are travelling in other regions you will need to change the map region by using the following steps.
1 From the Main Menu, tap on the right arrow to access the second page of the Main Menu.
2 Tap on User Options.
3 Tap on Region.
4 Tap on the map region desired.
The Region option will display the map regions that are available for the Magellan RoadMate you are using.

Also if you want you can download the user manual from this website

Hope this helps
thanks

Can i upgrade my roadmate 1200 to include Portugal?


I also have a RoadMate 1200 and I wanted to update my map as well.

After extensive research (and periodically checking up on this every couple of months), I have found that the RoadMate series devices do not allow for any official map upgrades.

There have been reports of successful third party software installations on the RoadMate. Installing a third party software program (or "firmware") would completely change the menu on your GPS. It would be like installing Windows Vista on an iMAC. If it is possible to run an alternative firmware on the RoadMate, then it would be quite possible to download a usable map of Portugal. I have not seen any evidence of this yet. When I do I will let you know! :)

Also, an alternative firmware installation should only be done by an expert computer user. And an expert user knows that alternative firmware will void the warranty and that alternative firmware is VERY risky.

Sorry,
Steve

You can find it here: http://magellan.cachefly.net/manuals/MRM_300na_en.pdf

You may also want to know that there is a MAJOR firmware update avaiable for your device.. It looks like it would make your GPS a lot faster and more accurate. You may want to take care of that update too while you're working on your device. The update can be found here: http://www.magellangps.com/support/notes.asp?supportID=288

Let me know if that helps!

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.
