Re: Magellan 300 Roadmate
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!

The only option to reset the Magellan Roadmate 300, is by going to Option button, then select User Settings. Since it's no longer loading the map or you cannot do anything, what you can do is to send the device to the manufacturer, and have them reset the hardware.
The internal memory was formatted. This is a catastrophic occurrence and
the most common E-mail message I get asking for help. Look under Bugs on the
Tips and Tricks page for some background.
Before buying an RM360
on eBay, make sure that it comes with the original Magellan SD map card and
not a blank one, and make sure that the original owner did not
format it! A formatted unit will not speak or make sounds.
Because the RM360 is a discontinued device, Magellan WILL NOT FIX THIS.
If you want to attempt a reflash, see the Hacking
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".
I think the problem is with the internal power jack which tends to break. the part is MG361213 and is available at laptopjacks.com. You have to take the Unit apart and remove the old jack and resolder the new one which is a three pin unit.
Hi guyz I pretty much did the same thing!!! I bought this gps for my girlfriend for valentines from a friend and i was trying to restore it to its factory default and the only option i found was repair and i did an internal memory format like a ****! well everything seems to be fine but no audio at all! I've done lots of research and it seems to be that the only way to fix it is by restoring the sounds files but where can i get them? I MEAN magellan doesn't provide any support any more due to the unit is discontinued! I mean how messed up is that? AND why would they provide with such a horrible option? that's sad! Can anyone please please please help me? please I'm going crazy here! :(
You'll have to obtain a copy of the Magellan Roadmate manager disks, load them into your computer, connect the GPS to your computer using the USB cable and the use the "Roadmate Manger settings" to change the language.
