SD Card for magellan 300,Can I use any card on it? I've just got it as a gift without the card. Is there any website where to buy it?


The Magellan Roadmate 300 and 300R both require preloaded map data to be supplied from an SD card. You can't just pop any card into the slot and get it working. It requires a card of 2GB or less loaded with Magellan mapping software. Magellan provides nationwide maps and regional maps. The 300R was a regional unit while the 300 included a national basemap.

If you have a model 300, you can still use the highway basemap to get routing from city to city but you will not have detailed address routing at the residential street level unless you insert an SD card with Magellan software. If you have a 300R model, the unit will be useless without the Magellan software on an SD card.

Magellan doesn't seem to offer much software support for this unit any more and the maps are difficult to find.

I think you may have just created a very expensive paperweight. From what I have gleened from the internet (and the Magellan website), this unit is no longer supported so trying to find replacement maps will be nigh impossible.

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.

Help me please


I had the same problem caused by reformatting the internal memory and this is what I did which worked for me:

Make sure you remove any SD memory cards before trying this fix.

First: find the base maps (NA_BSMAP.mgi and NA_BSMAP.nlt)maps which are located in your computer in the Magellan Roadmate Manager (C:\ProgramFiles\Magellan\Magellan RoadMate Manager NA\Map\Basemaps)

Second: Connect your Roadmate with the USB cable to your computer.

Third: Plug in USB and power up your GPS. Cut and paste the two files mentioned above to your GPS (Devices with Removable Storage (example E:/). They are approximately 25 MB in size and will take a few minutes to copy.

Fourth: Unplug the USB cable and shut power off to the GPS.

Fifth: Power up the GPS and it should find the "base maps".

Good luck!!

I think you are going to struggle here.
It may be possible to put the sounds back using the Magellan RoadMate PC application it is mentioned in the manual and on the web site http://www.magellangps.com/ but I cant see where to obtain it!

You are not alone, there is a thread here with people complaining about their receiver and trying to find the software. http://www.expansys.com/ft.aspx?k=63844

A reviewer here is actually using the software http://www.gpsinformation.us/rm300/Magellan%20RM300%20map%20loading.html note the red warning about formatting the internal memory!

I checked P2P to see if the software was floating around but all I found were maps.

Sorry for all the links but I think you'd better be informed that this ain't a quick fix and contacting Magellan may be the only way.

No maps found!!


Hi - I have the same model GPS but I've been unable to locate a copy of the CDs and I'd love to get a copy of them - would that be possible? My email address is bcmailid@sbcglobal.net.

As far as re-installing he maps, here's what I've found. I think this might help:
Locate the files that are loaded on the computer.Magellan Roadmate Manager example: C:\Program Files\Magellan\Magellan RoadMate Manager NA\Map\Basemaps
Copy all files. Make sure your Roadmate is connected and click on Example E:/Removable Disk and paste them with other files. It takes a few seconds to 1 minute to transfer the 25.5 mb file so don't unplug it until it is finished.
