    I need to update my Magellan Roadmate 1412 with my Mac computer. Can anyone help me?

  • herbhoover Jan 19, 2009

    I have the same problem. Find a friend with a PC. Magellan is hostile to Mac because it runs on Wince (Windows CE Core 5.0).

You can download the latest firmware here:

http://www.magellangps.com/support/notes.asp?supportID=290

It looks like your right, and it is no longer supported..

perhaps with the Magellan RoadMate PC application, there may be additional download available...

SOURCE: GPS doesnt turn on with power cord adaptor or 12v lighter socket

if you can verify that the car charger is ok, try plugging it in to your computer using the usb cable. the 1412 should charge with the usb cable. if it still doesnt turn on, try and reset the unit,little pin hole on the side.

Should be able to so long as it is set up for it, plug it in and see if the power light comes on, then leave it for an hour, at that time see if you can turn the unit on. You will at this point have your answer to your question. Make sure the computer is on though. (i know, but i didn't put that in one time and i got a nasty message from somebody, so now i put it in.)

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.

Free map update for1412


There are no free maps update for the magellan roadmate 1412 car gps receiver. The only maps you can get are sold at cheap rates. The maps go for about $50. Anyone that says they can find you free maps online are just going to be toying with you.

Salesman said when i registered Roadmate 1412 (refurb) I would be given chance to download latest maps for free. Didn't happen. What do i do, or what did i not do correctly?


Belived a salesman!

Therre are no free maps, other than a demo which isn't usfeull for real navigation. You should have received maps preloaded on a new device but not necessrily on a second hand refurbished device. You could put your case to magellan, but i doubt they would be sympatheic
