All,

Does anyone know if it's possible to change an American basemap on a Magellan (any model really) to a European one? Or are the basemaps fixed?

I've noticed that the US models are significantly cheaper than the EU ones and I've got an option to buy one at a very good price, but obviously a US basemap is not much use to me...

Cheers,

AFAIK it's included in the ROM and isn't possible to change it 'legally'.

Thanks Dave.

I have no experience of mapping GPS's, but if I loaded another map (i.e. the Magellan Mapsend GB Topo maps) onto the GPS, either using built-in-memory or an SD card then can this be used instead of the Basemap (although not replacing it), meaning that it needn't be a problem if the basemap is US?

Or are these Mapsend things only for the PC?

@Nej: Yes it is possible to change the basemap. I have already done it on my MeriGold. If you want more information PM me & I'll see if I can help.
