Hello, I am a newbee using a Magellan Maestro 4250. After reading up on Geocoding, I decided to try it myself but not having much luck with accuarcy.
I imported a csv file with (street address, city , state and zipcode), into Geocoder. It gave me back some coordinates.
I saved these back to the csv file. Then I opened it in the Magellan POI editor ..... dowloaded it to the GPS Unit.
Had a Magellan Roadmate 800 that crapped out on me. Sent it of to Magellan for warranty work. At this point they can't find the unit and have decided to compensate me by supplying me with a new Maestro 4210.
Checking to see if anyone here has had experience with these units (4210). If so; are they good or bad? ( Just trying to prepare myself in advance )
Just to let you know that AAA website has tourbook updates for Magellan Maestro GPS. www.aaa.com/gps
I've been stumbling blind for a couple of days in a renewed effort to find crossover resources. I tried when I first got it, but that was when it was first released and most retailers didn't have it yet and the Magellan website barely even mentioned it.
Hi all! I have had a Roadmate 700 for four years! I just got the $99 map update! That upgraded my 700 to a 760! I now have a 760 V6! Part of this software lets one create custom POIs! after a horrible 90 minutes on the phone with magellan teck support! They tell me that the POI manager software came with the V5 update! HOWEVER I did not get that update!
Got this for a present this christmas. Was hoping to have gotten the Tom-Tom (even though I hate their commercials) or one that was known to have software and pc connectivity. Can't gripe too much. It was the thought that counted right??
I want to get the Magellan Maestro 4250 but don't know what is the advantage over the MM 3225. Please advise!
Thanks for all the tips on downloading CSV files, creating a multi-category POI file with the Magellan POI editor and copying my file to the Magellan - this has been a very easy experience thanks to all of you!
Now, onto my issues...
Is it possible to recall the lat/long information for a saved location in the address book of a Maestro 3200? I am wondering about a location that is saved directly using the GPS unit. I realize that it may not be as accurate as handheld units.
Is there anywhere else other then the CD where I can find the poi editor?
I can seem to find it on the net.
I've recently upgraded to the ver 6 map/ver 5.36 SW for the Roadmate 700. (Finally)
It seems to allow custom POIs now, original software did not.
Magellan's support (an oxymoron for sure) says they do not have any more POI Tools or Editor CDs since the 700 is discontinued.
How can I get Magellan Roadmate 300 software to work on Windows Vista. Magellan said they are not going to support Windows Vista. Makes you wonder how they can stay in business.
This is my first post So introductions are as follows .I currently reside in Kitchener.ont
Canada. I deal in gps resales ,after having
personally feild tested units such as garmin,
navigon,magellan,an LG and some Canadian Tire wonder specials.I have to admit the crossover is pretty sweet with the new update , O.k
New to gps. I downloaded the poi. file rest areas to my desktop. How do I load this file to my gps. I have the Magellan poi editer but I cannot get the file from my desktop to the editer?
I am looking to purchase a maestro. I am torn between the 3225 and 4000. I can get them both for around the same price. Also, does the 3225 come with 6 million poi's installed or do you have to install them yourself??
If you are willing to void your warranty and have an SD card, here is the information on how to do it.
Here is the link:
I have figured out how to convert some csv files but I have a problem converting Texas Parks. I think it has to do with the format of the file. When I open with Excell All looks good except For column D. Column D has 4 subcategories. Could someone take a look at it and give me a idea what to do please. Thanks in advance.
I want to know if it is possible to pair two devices to the 4250, cell phone and BT headset. So I can see the call come in on the 4250 and then transfer it to the headset. Anybody try this? It sees the headset but I'm not sure how this duel pairing thing works. thanks
Are any of you who use the Magellan POI editor experiencing this problem. After editing a POI or converting one from a csv file, the program will not close. To resolve I have to ctl alt delete and close the program with Windows Task Manager.
Is it possible to somehow hook my 3200 to my mac so I can load POIs onto the 3200?
