Gps Help

Postby dunnigan » Mon Oct 26, 2009 9:46 am

I have a Magellan Meridian Platinum hand held GPS that I received as a gift about 5 years ago. Never really used it much. I put batteries in it and it appears to work great. It has a SD slot for uploading map software. Anyone know where I might be able to find a western topo map on SD for this device or which maps are even compatible with this GPS? I contacted Magellan and spoke with a dumbass that kept telling me no updates are available. He never seemed to understand that all I was asking is for a brand name or vendor for a western us topo map on SD or even a list of compatible maps. Im sure since it was not listed on his computer screen as a FAQ he was totally lost. I called Tigergps and was told to call Magellan :finger: Im starting to feel like I might be SOL but thought I would check here.

Thanks
GW

You want to look for Mapsend Topo 3D. I just got a copy from Ebay a few months ago. Also your best bet for info is the Magellan Yahoo Group.
