|The 360 would be a better choice. Size, weight, potential Map management I should have heeded the warnings of so many other reviews and skipped purchasing the RM 300. Installation of the software and setup was a breeze. Just got my Magellan Roadmate 300 a couple days ago, of course newegg had the best deal and shipping was on time also.|

|After 6 months of use I have yet to have this unit acquire satellite signals with the built in antenna while in any vehicle. The unit operates just fine. It aquires quickly and is easy to learn so usefulness comes quickly.|

Basemap Routing vs. Detailed Map Routing
The Magellan RoadMate comes with a built-in basemap. The basemap contains highways and town centres. The basemap does not contain street address information, points of interest, or other map data (such as waterways, railroads, or parks). The Magellan RoadMate can route via the basemap to a town centre or point selected on the screen using the available road data. Where there is no data, a thin, straight line from point to point will be used with a flag indicating the start and finish of normal street routing. You will be routed from your current position via a straight line to the nearest major road or freeway on-ramp, along the freeway to the off-ramp closest to your destination, and then via straight line to your destination.
With the detailed map, you are routed using turn-by-turn guidance on all town streets and highways. Also, you have access to detailed map data and points of interest. As you can see, with the detailed map the route becomes more direct using the surface streets. With this information in mind, lets see how the Magellan RoadMate routes between regions.
Destination Selected from detailed map database
Secure Digital (SD) Cards
The Secure Digital (SD) card is a small, lightweight flash memory device that allows increased data storage for your Magellan RoadMate. The compact size is ideal for storing large amounts of data and not taking a lot of physical space. The SD card slot on your Magellan RoadMate uses what is called a push-push method of locking and releasing. In other words, when you insert the card you must push it to lock it in, and to release it you must push it also. SD cards come in a variety of sizes and manufacturers, please visit our web site at www.magellangps.com for a list of compatible SD cards.
To Insert the SD Card:
Make sure the unit is off. Hot-Swapping or changing cards with the power on is not supported and may damage the unit and the SD card. 1. Peel back the rubber gasket to expose the SD card slot. Do not completely remove the rubber gasket. The SD card can only be inserted in one direction. Do not force the card into the slot. 2. Insert the SD card into the slot with the metal contacts going in first and the bevelled edge to the left.
3. Push the SD card into the slot. You will feel slight resistance. Continue to push until you hear a click.
4. Replace the rubber gasket.
To remove the SD card:
1. Peel back the rubber gasket to expose the SD card slot. Do not completely remove the rubber gasket. Do not attempt to pull the card out of the slot at this point. 2. Push the SD card into the slot as before until you hear a click. 3. Remove the SD card from the slot. 4. Replace the rubber gasket.
Take care when mounting the Magellan RoadMate in your vehicle, whether using the windscreen mount or another mount, that it does not obstruct the drivers view of the road. Make sure that the fitting of the Magellan RoadMate and cable does not interfere with the operation of vehicle safety devices, such as air bags. You assume the risks associated with damage to your vehicle or your vehicles occupants as a result of how you choose to mount the Magellan RoadMate.
Installation with the Windscreen Mount
Using a Phillips screwdriver, attach the mounting plate to the back of the Magellan RoadMate with four screws until the screws are square with the plate.
Slide the mount assembly onto the windscreen mount bracket attached to the back of the unit.
Press the windscreen mount to the glass and rotate the locking dial until it clicks into place.
Plug the power cable into the unit.
Plug the cigarette lighter connector into an appropriate 12V receptacle in your car.
Rotate the antenna upward. Installation is complete. You are ready to turn the Magellan RoadMate on and go.
Installing the External Antenna
The external antenna (not included) provides faster satellite fix times and greater signal strength. Because it is mounted outside of the vehicle, it is not affected by reflective coatings on windows and has an unobstructed line of sight to the satellites. Rotate the antenna all the way anti-clockwise until it stops.
Hold the antenna at the lower portion and pull straight off the back of the unit.
Plug the end of the external antenna into the socket on the back of the unit.
Attach the antenna to a flat portion of the roof of your vehicle. The antenna is magnetic. Do not use any adhesives to attach the antenna to your vehicle.

Choosing the Routing Method
Every route is calculated based on the Routing Method criteria selected. Every time a new destination is selected, the Magellan RoadMate prompts you for the method that will be used to calculate the route. Shortest Time: This selection calculates a route that should take the least amount of time using known speed limits, streets, and other information in the database. Other factors such as traffic conditions, road closures, and emergency activity are not factors in the calculation of shortest time.
Avoid Toll Roads: This option calculates the route by excluding known toll roads from the calculation whenever possible. This option may not reflect the shortest time.
Least Use of Motorways: This selection calculates the route by avoiding motorways whenever possible.
Most Use of Motorways: This selection calculates the route by using motorways as much as possible.
Basemap routing works if the point you wish to route to is outside your active detailed map area. The basemap covers all major European countries. You can create a route to a point on the map or to a major town centre located on the basemap. The Magellan RoadMate will use major highways for routing whenever the route you are creating requires you to use the basemap.
Selecting a Point on the Map
Zoom out to view a larger map area. Touch the screen and drag the map to the point where there is no detailed map information.
Once you have roughly located the area you wish to route to, zoom in to 0.8 mi or closer. Continue to move the around the map until you have located the area you wish to route to. Press Enter.
A dialog box will appear. You can Route to or Save the point, or Cancel the request. Select Route.
Select the desired Routing Method.
The Magellan RoadMate will calculate the route. When the calculations are complete, the Map screen will be displayed and you can begin your route.
If your present position is in a detailed map, you will be routed normally. Once you exit the detailed map, you will be routed along major highways to the junction closest to your destination as indicated by the flag. Then a straight thin line will show to route you to your destination.
Search BaseMap Town
This function enables you to route to one of the town centres located in your Magellan RoadMate basemap. From the Select Destination screen, select Points of interest.
Select Search Basemap Town.
Enter the first few characters for the town. After you have selected the characters, select OK. If you wish, you may enter the entire town name.
Use the navigation key to scroll the list up or down and select the desired town.
The Magellan RoadMate will calculate the route. When the calculations are complete, the Map screen will be displayed. The distance represents travel on roads and by using straight lines where no road data is present. The conditions for basemap routing apply. Where there is no road data, a straight line will connect your current position with the nearest junction, and from the junction to the town centre.
Switching SD Cards
You may want to access data stored on another SD Card. See Secure Digital (SD) Cards on page 4 for instructions on inserting and removing SD Cards.
Selecting a Destination Using Select Address

Deviating from the Planned Route
If you deviate from the calculated route, the Magellan RoadMate will get you back on course in one of two ways: 1. If you deviate from the calculated route to stop at a petrol station or a convenience store, and the unit shuts off as you turn off the car, or you turn off the unit manually, when you return to your vehicle and the unit is turned back on, you are presented with a screen asking if you want to resume your route. Selecting Resume causes the Magellan RoadMate to recalculate the route using the same destination as before, selecting Cancel clears the route and displays the Select Destination screen. 2. If you deviated from the calculated route due to a traffic jam or construction, the Magellan RoadMate will automatically recalculate the route to your destination based on your new location. By default, the Magellan RoadMate will continue to recalculate the route as long as you choose to keep it active.
Excluding a Segment in a Planned Route
While travelling or setting up your destination, you may find it necessary to exclude one of the segments in the List of Directions. This could be due to an accident or street maintenance you want to avoid. The Magellan RoadMate provides you with tools to select a specific segment, exclude it from the planned route, and recalculate the route when possible. Within an active planned route and while viewing the Guidance screen, press View.
Select the segment instruction to be excluded.
The details for the segment are displayed. Select Exclude. The trip will be re-calculated, excluding the selected segment. This calculation is done using the same Routing Method that was chosen when the destination was selected. After the route is recalculated, the Map screen is displayed.
Cancelling a Planed Route
Every route is calculated based on the Routing Method criteria selected (see page 12). Every time a new destination is selected, the Magellan RoadMate prompts you for the method that will be used to calculate the route.
While viewing the Map screen, the List of Directions screen, or the TrueView screen, press the Cancel button.
Select Route to select a different routing method. Select Yes to cancel the route and display the Select Destination screen. Selecting No returns the display to the last viewed screen. Select Trip to view the current trip list (during active trip only).

Disclaimer Sad but true. You are doing this at your own risk. I have made every attempt to provide you with precise instructions on how to accomplish this task, but common sense, ingenuity and basic coordination skills are required. By deciding to undertake this project, you are absolving the author of this document of all responsibility. The products and brands used throughout this document are trademarks of their respective owners. I have no affiliation with any of them. Skills You will be working with plastic which is bad for your lungs, and itchy on your skin protect both! During this project there will be times (possibly many) when you'll ask yourself: is this worth it? and how did I talk myself into doing this?. The answer to the first one is YES! - the second one is more complicated, and it likely has something do to with our biological makeup. Tools and materials If you still think that you want to do this, consider costs (all prices are ballpark): Magellan RoadMate 300 $600 excellent performance, and has beveled edges around the screen and buttons that make it fit nicely into our faceplate cutout - depending on how well they fit together in the end (keep that in mind). An SD memory card. The unit holds 80Mb of data, which should be enough for a couple of states. If you need more memory, you will need to buy an SD memory card. 512Mb should be a nice size and will set you back around $60. Dremel-like power tool $80 I got the one with flex-cord extension, so that I could keep the main unit away from the glass dust. It turns out that I could use the extension in the kitchen sink with some watter in it so there was no dust (the stupidity factor is very high with this approach, but apparently I hate glass dust more then I value my pride,.and possibly life). 4 fiberglass cloth tape + resin $20 get the cloth that's not too heavy. Multiple layers of thinner cloth are better then one thick one. As far as resin goes polyester and epoxy resins are both two component. Polyester resin generally dries faster - depending on temperature and the amount of accelerant you mix it with. Epoxy resin is usually mixed 50/50. If you live in a warm climate you're all set. For us with temperatures < 60, think heat. You'll need a bunch of minor things like a caliper, sanding paper (assorted grit), soldering iron, screws, see illustration 1 for some of these.
You asked for it.
1. Pull the part out of the center console there are no screws. 2. You will have to remove the plastic door there is a spring loading mechanism on the right hand side (looking at it from the front). You can be careful, or just yank it out if you're not concerned about putting it back I wasn't. 3. If you have a flatbed scanner, you may want to scan the gps it will make a flat copy of it, which you can then print and make a cutout template. If you don't have a flatbed scanner, use your imagination getting a paper cutout outline of the gps.
Illustration 2 Scanned actual and printed copy of the gps - they match!
4. The cutout part for the gps will be the area around the beveled edges
5. Place the printed template on a flat surface (nice cutting board) and cover it with plastic wrap (for easy cleanup). You may also wish to outline the template using a marker. The marked outline will dissolve and roughly transfer onto our plastic faceplate.
6. Layer 8-10 sheets of 4 fiberglass tape cloth onto the template. The outline in the above picture
shows the dimensions of the actual faceplate. Make sure there is enough material surrounding this area, so that you can cut it off later. It's much easier then patching things at a later time. Also, if you're going to add more layers, the previous layer will have to be fully dry and sanded it's just more work, so try not to go there if you don't have to. The final faceplate will be about 2-3mm thick.
Illustration 3 New England winters are cold. Warmth is essential for quick drying. If you're doing this in your kitchen, make sure that nobody's around the fumes will knock you out.
7. After it's all nice and dry, you will cut the outer outline and fit it in the console.
8. At this point, you're ready to start the most frightening and lengthy task the inner cutout. I relied on the loose outline from step 5, making sure that I don't get too close to the actual line. The faceplate in the picture has been through lots of sanding and even some primer.
9. In this step, we're adding screw mounts to the bottom of the faceplate. I've constructed resin holders out of polyester foam. Caution: polyester resin will melt polyester foam, so you need to use epoxy resin for this step, or use wood or polyurethane foam (yellow stuff). Also make sure that you add fiberglass cloth shavings (cut a bunch of cloth into small pieces with scissors) to the resin, before you pour it in.
10.This is what the end result should look like.
11.After lots of sanding, and about 8-10 layers of paint with more sanding in-between (I used RustOleum Professional High Performance Enamel Flat Black 7578), I ended up with a nice looking faceplate.
Illustration 4 Rough fit test, no screws in the back.
12.This picture shows the fit from the back. The faceplate rests between the console and the gps. The gps pushes against the faceplate and is supported by plastic strips in the back (the ones that are screwed in). I've made these from the plastic strip that I had to cut (about 1cm) in order to be able to fit the gps inside. I cut the big strip in half and applied heat to bend the two support strips.
13.The bottom of the faceplate is held in place by a screw that goes through a hole in the console unit (no need to drill anything. Make sure you pre-drill the holes in the faceplate though you don't want it to split open.
14.OK, it's time for wires. You will have to take some more plastic off the console part in order to nicely fit the power plug and the unit into the console. Once again, Dremel made this really easy.
15.If you don't mind driving with your lights on, you're almost done. The harness in the back of the unit supplies voltage when the lights are on and that's all that I needed to know. If you want steady voltage even when lights are off you're on your own. Here is what I did. The wire is then soldered into the harness,.and you're done.
16.This image shows the soldered wires. I took the LED light out what's the point?
17.And here is the final assembly. You can't see any wires!
18.I purchased an external gps antenna for Meridian RoadMate 500, 700 for $29.95 from www.gpsgeek.com. I've velcro-ed it in the middle of the dashboard and ran the wire on the driver's side around and under the steering wheel, then back up through a hole in the dashboard use your imagination. 19.I've also secured the back plate of the gps unit which houses the speaker to the whole thing. I wasn't sure if the speaker volume will be strong enough it is, but not if the stereo is loud. I may install a different mylar speaker in the future. It works for now. Sorry no pictures. Also the heat doesn't appear to be a problem. 20.I took a long trip with this unit, about 300 miles and I loved every minute of it. In the end for me it was all worth it! Good luck!
