my gps is dead i try to turn it on and they show up the magellan screen and them he turn off. so i don't know what's going on with this.i ,am new on this thing i need help thank you
I bought a Magellan Roadmate 3045, $98 at Biglots and I had a 20% off coupon, so about $80.
I bought it because of the lifetime traffic.
The unit is OK, the lifetime traffic seems to work much better than my Garmin lifetime traffic and way way better than my old Magellan with traffic.
I have a Magellan RoadMate 3045, I subscribed this morning to download the RLC POI's, and downloaded them.
I can't find the CD for my GPS, but I managed to download the Magellan POI file editor from a link posted in this forum.
I converted the .csv's to .MGLN's, and hit transfer but that just comes up with a save as dialog.
Seems like the newest maps for Magellan Maestro 3100 are 2008/2009 versions. Is it possible to convert the 2011 garmin map .img file to be used on a Magellen Maestro 3100???????
If so: Can someone point me in the right direction? Surely a program exists to do this? or perhaps a 2011 maps set for Magellan? THANKS IN ADVANCE.
I have a Editor From Magellan that edits and creates poi files for my Magellan Maestro 5310 ...
Would be happy to pass it along...but I don't know how to download it to this form...Help..
Latest maps from Magellan now out. Two updates in a year, starting to look good for Magellan and us.. Map Vs. 41
Started geocaching - dusted off my old Crossover.
Want to upgrade firmware, I have:
Model: 2500NA, Firmware version=1.62.03.02, OS=1.28 etc.
I downloaded the 1.68 and 2.14 firmware from the Magellan site, I have a couple of questions.
1. Is it necessary to install firmware v1.68 or are your able to go directly to v2.14?
Just bought cable from buy.com for under $30 with shipping for my 4700. This is cheaper than Magellan website with AAA's 50% off discount and shipping.
Is that good or bad? How bout the traffic feature...any experience from those whoe use the latest Magellans? I just bought a Magellan 3045 lm (lifetime maps and traffic) from Best Buy last weekend for 109.99....Is it a keeper?
I hope this link works. November 2010 update - ver. 11.2
After the guy at Best Buy pointed out the great features of the Magellan over the Garmin -- and it was time for me to get new maps for my Garmin -- I bought the 3045LM unit.
I get home and log on to my Mac. Head to Magellan site. NO Mac software.
Looks like the unit goes back to the store tomorrow.
Or is there a solution?
Wanting to get one of these, but I heard that you can't have the POI red light camera. Is this true? I want to know before I purchase one.
Just bought a Magellan 1440 for $60 (new from store). The software version on the device is 1.xx, when I checked Magellan site, it said the latest is 2.xx and asked me to download content manager. However, content manager doesn't indicate a firmware upgrade for this device, just a map update that I would have to pay for.
I've had my GPS for 2 1/2 years. Trying to get a map update from 4.72 version and it looks to me like it will cost $79.95! Can this be true? Thanks for any input!
Does anyone know a way to transfer the Magellan addressbook to another unit? I want to replace my 3225 with a 1412 and don't want to manually reenter everything. The utility to backup and restore to the SD card doesn't seem to work between units. I also tried to copy the files over, but they weren't recognized.
Is there a utility like the one for POI's? Any ideas?
I am going for a long planned trip to Utah next week. Being a GPS freak, I have collected almost 300 coordinates all across the state. I have crated the .mgln file using the poi file editor and then copied the file under the USR/ CPOI directory in my Magellan 1475T GPS.
I can't transfer a POI from the Magellan POI file editor. Every time I try, the editor says no GPS unit is detected. Yet, the GPS displays "the usb has been connected to the unit", Windows device manager shows that a Magellan RoadMate is connected by the usb cable and is working successfully. I am running Windows XP, service pack 3. Is there another driver I need to load?
I have one and it's great. Can't go wrong at $150.00
New map on sale for $49 till 10/21- also increased AAA discount from 15% to 50% for map updates, unfortunately cannot combine with sale price but makes it $40.
Asked in another post if there is room on map SD for POI files also.
I have had Magellan GPS units since they came out, a really long time.
Right now I have a Maestro 4040 and a Maestro 4250, the 4250 has traffic receiver in the cord.
Recently I had been using a Garmin 1300 unit which has "free" traffic, not really free but ad supported. I just mailed it back to Garmin since the traffic wasn't working reliably.
So I am back to the Magellan unit and I have a few months of traffic subscription on it, after which they will be wanting me to pay for that traffic.
I can't see why anyone would do that.
