I'm guessing you do not have lifetime maps on this device then?

Have you tried to install an iGO nav from Navitotal? You should be able to. Then you can update the contents.

No I have not install IGO yet . I was not too sure yet on what files or program I needed to use.
I was wondering if there was a step by step tutorial on how to update this Gps in this
forum. I have updated Garmin gps several times before.

Do you know if my gps ( Magellan Roadmate 1212 ) is supported by IGO? And what version of IGO should I install.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can. Have a look in the iGO section for the different elements.

if your unit has a SD card slot, or microSD slot on it, then putting iGo on the unit will be super easy, and works very well..

I, myself can't stand the crap that Magellan put on mine..
