I am afraid that, currently we do not have any Map update for RM 800. Therefore, we request that you wait for the Map update.
If you have registered your unit with our website, you will receive a notification about the Map update release.
Garmin tends to offer updates for a longer time than Magellan does.
Also, Garmin will repair units after the warranty has expired for a fee...
If you don't have a Magellan account, visit the main page of the Magellan website, click "Create Account" and follow the directions on the screen to set one up. Right-click the Content Manager icon in the system tray in Windows and the Dock in OS X.
GPS devices, however, are only as reliable as the data stored on them, so they should be updated regularly.Also much quicker calc amd recalc routes now and one auto reset. had to ignore update inst and input "firmware code" given by Mag rather than one on unit.Documentation is awful, but finding my way around it. Routing alog a little clunky, but again finding my way around it.I like my 760 too, but I honestly think it makes more sense to pay for a new one, unless you intend to pay over 0, which I do not. Their Website accuracy mirrors their non-existent technical support. They seem to have better support and customer satisfaction, and I read that they update their maps on a regular basis. What a joke, they get you for your money, then leave you hanging. What a joke, they get you for your money, then leave you hanging.Costco has the Maestro 4040 (I think) for something like 0 now, I played with it in the store, it's sweet. Tried to see if there was an update to v2.0 of the POI editor (I have v1.5 that came with my 800 and v2.0 that came with my 860T) They were useless in helping me BUT while I had them on the phone I asked the question about the update/cost. I talked to magellan's corporate office this morning and the lady told me that the 3000t will NOT get an update now. Hopefully future GPS purchasers read this and DONT buy magellan I talked to magellan's corporate office this morning and the lady told me that the 3000t will NOT get an update now.
