Updating magellan maps
Magellan uses a firmware application you install on your computer called Content Manager to manage updates.
When you plug a Magellan GPS device into your computer's USB connection, this application communicates with Magellan's servers to check for new updates and install them on your device.
I got an email from Magellan announcing an update and free upgrade with marine and crossover features to my Roadmate 2200T. .99 On their site are updates for crossover and Roadmate 2000 models, at the same price. Naturally, the next question is whether this will be available in the usual stores at a discount like the Garmin update released last week. A fresh, new user interface offers bold buttons and intuitive menu options to make navigation easier than ever.
New maps and points of interest include the latest registered streets, addresses and business.
Plus, improved address handling and route calculation, enhanced search capabilities and new features offer a more refined navigation experience. Get outdoor and marine navigation capability when you purchase this upgrade and turn your Magellan Road Mate 2200T into a Crossover GPS.
Use optional outdoor and marine maps to navigate on the trail and on the water.
Improved color map screens with freshly designed images and icons offer smoother map scrolling as you drive and easier touch-screen operation when selecting routes and options.
The Points of Interest database has been updated and refined with new locations for the most popular destination categories, including restaurants, ATM's, gas stations, coffee houses and more.The unit can be seen by their software, it will allow me to buy an update to the speed traps. The scam is, according to their own website, "when maps are available." The maps come from a secondary source, as I have twice online chatted with the company.The employee even recognizes they are almost two year old, with no update. Update your Magellan Road Mate 2200T with the latest maps, refined points of interest and a new user interface all in one complete package.New color map screens offer smoother scrolling and easier viewing.
