The file is 1.2Gig because the new basemap is over  a gigabit in size.

If the new version does support RMP-maps, then basemap will still have to be removed.

The file is 1.2Gig because the new basemap is over  a gigabit in size.  The older firmware was not written by Magellan nor was the map.  However, this new release is now Magellan's own software and now has their standard basemap in it which is now tied directly to the serial number of the unit once installed.  Magellan is very, very paranoid about people stealing their maps!!!  Anyway, because of the size of the map, which is a much better map than the older version, they had to choice but to release a huge update file.

Over a year ago Magellan assured us that when the updates are made available the password protected routine won't happen anymore.

 

It's always frustrating to see a long awaited update that I can't access.

Is teasing us really necessary?

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout
