Magellan traffic

Is it just me or does it seem very unclear the way you activate the traffic on the 4700. I cannot figure out when it is active and not active. Any simple instructions?

Roadmate 1470 vs Maestro 4700

I am looking at both the 4700 & 1470 units, my questions are: 1. is the 4700 worth the extra $45 or so, given that I am not interested in blue tooth and 2. is the technology engine the same for both of them ? I am looking for reliability and a minimum number of quirks.
THanks, Tim

Magellan 1700-Opinions?

I've been a Garmin guy for a while, but I saw this Magellan at Costco the other day and I really liked it:


Magellan maestro firmware 2.62. Is this the newest firmware?

Magellan Roadmate 1470 Firmware

I just tried to update the firmware on a Magellan Roadmate 1470 from 1.07 to 2.05rel3. I did the steps listed on the program. It asked me to unplug it and wait for it to reboot a couple of times. I saw it reboot twice, once to do something with uboot. The second time to update wince.img.

Here's a GPS for Truckers . . .

Rand McNally Intelliroute® TND 500

I like the option of current road construction, unfortunately it's updated via a PC. I wonder how many trucker are going to rush out and buy this unit with its $500 price tag.

Magellan GPS

Does anyone know how to add red light cameras and other POI's to the Magellan 4770? I called Magellan and the tech told me that No one is sanctioned by Magellan at this time and if I did download a red light camera database and the Magellan quit working, the warranty would be void. I have a Garmin 1390 and all downloads seem to be flawless.

Magellan Roadmate 1470 POI loading

I am interested in using some of the custom POI files listed on this site. However, I have been unsuccessful finding any software to interface with my Roadmate 1470 or software to convert from Garmin file formats. Most of the files I have looked at are .csv format. There was no POI Editor Software included with this device. Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Magellan Spring map update

I purchased the Spring 2009 map update and installed it in my Maestro 3250. Now when I start my car, after the warning screen goes away the main menu displays. Before the map would be displayed after the warning screen. I would not have to select show map.

Anyone else having this happen or know of a fix for it?
