Magellan roadmate 800 update maps

I have a magellan roadmate 800 southern europe. I wanted to upgrade the firmware to 2.12 (currently I have 1.04) in order to upgrade maps to v2. However, when I try to upgrade the firmware the installer tells me that "non roadmate 800 with traffic kit connected". I do not have  a traffic kit. Is there any way around the problem?

I have a Magellan RoadMate 800 want to update


there is a firmware update (2.12) for your 800, you can download it HERE then just follow the directions to update your unit...the link above it for the 800 north american version, so if you have the Europe version, just got to the support page and select your unit.

you must register your magellan on their website before they will let you download anything.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.

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

UPDATE MAPS ON MY MAGELLAN


According to Magellan at their website, a new map update will be available next month (sometime). There is a firmware update there now.  The firmware update works fine if you follow their instructions.....full battery charge etc.

There are various reasons this could be happening. To start eliminating the main causes, go to the Magellan site and create a profile for yourself. You will than be able to download the latest firmware update and the newest maps. This will fix connectivity issues and at the same time give you the latest and greatest of what your device has to offer.

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.

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.
