Some of the Magellan software updates and minor map upgrades can be obtained for free, but most of the map updates must be purchased. Launch Content Manager and log in using your Magellan account information.
There are times when you have to THINK a little bit though !!Seems like the newest maps for Magellan Maestro 31/2009 versions. On the Magellan site, the newest maps for the Maestro 3100 are listed as 2008/2009 updates. While googling around, I saw several references to converting existing map data to the magellan format (ie: garmin - magellan) While I'm no pro, I think not offering map updates is cruel to your customer (are you listening magellan) My brother has the Maestro 3100 - Its worked fine for him, and he has no requirements or special needs to force him to upgrade or change hardware.Is it possible to convert the 2011 garmin map file to be used on a Magellen Maestro 3100??????? He recently was travelling on a new highway that was NOT part of his aging maps (2007 I think), and was going to buy a map upgrade.I think most Magellan users would be happy to PAY for a map update.....they just could GET one.Well Garmin updates have come a long way and to keep their product competitive it's about time ( looks dream right now but may be a reality soon) Magellan has to comeup with more after-sale service to get to number one in GPS world.If so: Can someone point me in the right direction? I didn't believe him when he explained it was $ maps!
