Magellan model maestro 4050 updating
I seem to recall a similar email way back a long time ago.... The last few requests after that simply wne unanswered....... Well Magellan after only 6 months finally upgraded the maps for the 3000 series (my 3050t) Gee and only bucks!
I was told when I bought and registered this POS that I would get the update free in March when I bought it and they stated then in April the maps would be upgraded. So now I have my complaint into Magellan which I am positive will get a nice canned bs response of oh sorry, get your wallet out! Their CS is nonexistent and worse yet based in India by who I have continually spoken with to this point.
Magellan website now says Roadmate 760 update will be available in September, and come September, who knows, it may be pushed back even later. Let's cross our fingers and maybe this will be the REAL date..... promised me that the map update would be available the last day of Sept. I think I will just sell my 3000 on E-bay and buy a garmin.
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.

I too have eagerly been anticipating this software update. If you want to believe them, they told me the Map updates would be available on the website for the second week of October...
For the longest time (many months) the Magellan website has been promising the update for the Roadmate 760 to be available in "early July," which naturally has come and passed. Question: Is it worth it to pay another for an update for an outdated GPS unit, when you don't even know if the updates will benefit you, or should one just buy a more up-to-date GPS instead? then they said check to check on-line on October 15th.
When The roadmate 760 came out in June 2005, I paid top dollar for this unit with the understanding that it was able to be updated to newer maps later.
They claimed every 18 months but it has now been 28 months and no update to be seen yet.
Our sincere apologies for the delay in replying to your email and for the inconvenience caused by this issue.Update Star includes support for many languages such as English, German, French, Italian, Hungarian, Russian and many more.You can choose your language settings from within the program.The map was older when it came out so now it is terribly out dated.We had a major Highway addition a year and a half ago which makes almost every trip planned wrong.I understand that you would like to know when there would be a Map update release for RM 800.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.You can also contact ou Technical Support at 1-800-707-9971 for further assistance.Here is what I received today as answer from Magellan Dear XXX, Your Email case 774630 has been Updated. This email is in response to your query about the Road Mate 800.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.
