Updating magellan roadmate
A waste of money, a waste of time and pure disappointment in the product. Pretty much the same problem everyone else is having. One is 100% damaged beyond all repair due to one of their very own software updates and another arrive broken. This way, you’ll have a working device at your earliest convenience." HA HA. Why on earth would I even consider purchasing another Magellan when the 1st one didn't work. I purchased this GPS because it advertised a lifetime map upgrade.Their suggestion, re-install new software and maps on the NEW GPS device. I am so disgusted and I will not stop until I get some answers. Anyway, I recommend you doing full research and reviewing GARMIN or Rand Mc Nally options. In trying to upgrade it I found that no upgraded maps were offered for this model.Due to that, there will be no longer map update available for your unit.This is due to the technological advances in mapping data over that past few years.It worked well for a while then for some reason the time switched to PM and the clock showed an incorrect time. I even called the 800 support number to be told they no longer support the phone number.If you are going to purchase a GPS after market unit I suggest you stay away from this model.
They are trying not to honor the deal saying the memory is too small for current maps.If they are treating others this way - this deserves a class action suit to filed against Magellan GPS.Founded in 1986, Magellan is a global positioning system (GPS) company specializing in consumer navigation electronics.We aim to provide readers with the most up-to-date information available about today's consumer products and services.
