Need the frequences,for my scanner for the east bay area Oakland police, dispatch, Alameda county sheriff. Anything. This way greatly appreciated thanks


All of the Oakland services use the Alemeda County trunked system, described here:

There are a ton of interesting channels in the East Bay area that aren't trunked though -- take a look here:

I need free updates for my magellan gps


if you are looking for map updates I have not been successful in transferring data from one unit to another. That requires their "process" experimentation on bypassing their updates on a older roadmate 700 series caused alot of pain.

If you need a firmware update that is available at their website

If you have a unit more than 3 years old don't waste money on updates the new roadmate 1430 or 1470 run about $150 and the 1 touch navigation is much better than the older software. There have also been MAJOR improvements in the GPS receiver and sensitivity is far superior to those units built even just two years ago.

I just bought a magellan roadmate 1412. I live in Canada. I wanted a gps with Canadian maps. The box and ads said this product DOES HAVE CANADIAN MAPS. When I turned it on there was NO selection for Canada...


Go to User option, choose region, select Canada. I have this unit. My problem is I can't input correct street address or street number. You can input 1500 but not 700 Ste-Catherine, Montreal, QC. The support told me to buy a better one. What I am going to do with this one?

RoadMate 700/760 Version 6 update maps are over a year old!!


THE CURE for this problem is NEVER BUY Magellan again!!

After paying over £800 for an early Roadmate 700 (which failed and was replaced by a failed/recon version) then to have problems with software.. now having waited a year to get map update and version 6 firmware I find it doesn't give me Magellan Tools which was promised by Magellan Support.

After several mail queries and important qustions remaining unanswered I am buying a Tomtom Go 720T which will do all the updates automatically via a cradle linked to my PV/Internet.

NEVER EVER AGAIN a damned Magellan - great when it works but it's easier to get blood from a stone than good support from Magellan.

Does not reset location


I too have sometimes to wait for 20 mins before my Roadmate picks up all the satellites it needs. The problem is worse if I'm surrounded by buildings.

I have at last decided to bin the Magellan as it's been nothing but trouble and Magellan Support just don't seem to care to respond.

Am now getting a Tomtom Go series with all preloaded, maps/ traffic/ cameras - it auto updates each time it's put on its cradle attached to PC/internet.
