Updated maps for Magellan 3225

Are there free map updates available for this unit?
If so, where do I find them?
My unit has maps that are at least 2 years old & don't have the detail that other GPS units have.
Thanks

    i have the same problem

    I read somewhere that a new map update is scheduled for 4Q/08, is it available and does anyone have it?Thanks

    I'm just now starting to use my 3225 and the map information is out of date. I see many posts that state that the map information was out of date as early as Jan 08 when I got this unit. Anyone know where to get the 3225 map updates without paying the insane $80 Majellan wants? Thanks!

    it costs a fortune for updates

  • rbdeli61 Dec 26, 2008

    There is a 2008/2009 Map Update for The Maestro 3225 GPS, but you will have to pay $79.00 for them on the MagellanGPS website. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to just buy a new GPS. I've see some highly rated units for under $100 at buy.com. Too bad they can't provide updates or at least at a more reasonable cost.

HOW DO I UPDATE THE 1412


To update your magellan roadmate is very simple. But take note, there are two (2) types of updates:
  1. Software update, which are free.
  2. Maps update, but you have to purchase them.
Either ways you will get both updates from the support link from th magellan website. For software update:
  1. first go to the website, www.magellangps.com,
  2. Place the cursor on the support link and a list will pop out,
  3. From the list select manuals and softwares,
  4. Select the manuals and software link that is on the page,
  5. You select the vehicle navigation form the list,
  6. Once you select the type some other pages come up then you select the road mate,
  7. Once you select the road mate, a list comes up, then you select the road mate 1412,
  8. Then the download link will pop up, then you click on the link to download it.
  9. Once you download it, connect your gps to the computer, then you update it from there.
Sometimes, the moment you have the magellan roadmate software on your computer, as soon as there is a latest update, it will notify you to download it for your gps update.
To update a map,
  1. You purchase the maps once they are available from magellan website,
  2. go to the website as stated above,
  3. place the cursor on the maps ans a list will come out,
  4. Select either vehicle navigation maps or outdoor maps depending on what you want to update,
  5. Then you select the product type and the product model
  6. A page will pop up with the latest map for you to download.
  7. Then you add to cart.
That way your maps will be updated.
I hope this information helped.

How do I update my Magellan 3250


You can go to Magellan's website but I can assure you there are no map updates for free.
Try resetting the unit.
Turn it on and find the tiny hole marked reset - -then push and hold a paperclip in the hole until it resets. Try this 3 times if you want to clear it out and start with the maps it came with.

Go here - the official Magellan website and read until you see the word RESET - this is for your model.

The software update version corresponds to your map database version:
  • If you have map database version 27, your software will be updated to v2.62.
  • If you have map database version 31, your software will be updated to v3.61.

Loading New Map


I don't know if this is much of a solution, but from what I understand from my extensive research on this product (I bought one online and have been trying to get updated maps), Magellan no longer supports this unit. I looked on their website to confirm, and on the "Scheduled Map Updates" list, the Magellan 300 has no further updates available. Apparently, this has been the case for the last few years.

Magellan RoadMate 2000


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.

Map update for the 3250


I would avoid map updates from Magellan like the plague. They have a strange way of frying the units. Unless you want to be without your GPS and fighting with Magellan for months, leave the map software the way it is.
