There is a new Downloadable update that Magellan just came out with for all of you Map 330 users out there. You can grab this update by using this link < Magellan 330 V2.08 Update > This will bring you up to date and also fix some known bugs. As the link indicates this new version is 2.08 and version 1.07 North American Map data base.
Make sure you read the instructions before you start the process and you will be fine. i just updated mine and it went well with no problems. It says it will take about 15 minutes for complete update, but mine was about 20-25 and I have also heard it go as long as 30, so don't panic.
If you have any problems beyond this or during the update, let us know here and we'll try to help you through it.

Just finished mine and took about 21 minutes start to finish.

Several new features, including a new additional GOTO Pointer on the compass screen that points in the direction of the currently selected waypoint. :thumbsup:

Sledgehampster, I notice Magellan hasnt posted a version newer than 2.08 on their Support page yet (9/17)....... ??

Any info on what the 2.09 adds or fixes?
Thanx! :wave

The difference between 2.08 and 2.09 is:
ver 2.09 adds:
1. Waypoint "Projection" capability
2. New compass screen
3. Default contrast setting changes to 50%

Cool! Thanx!
I actually noticed the new compass as soon as I hit that screen... :)

I didn't see this link posted previously so I thought I'd include it here. The link is to a site where you enter a website address and it will monitor the page and when there is a change, it emails you. I use it for my garmin software page and Oziexplorer so I know right away if there is an update. I thought some of you might find it useful as well.

A new base map of 1.07?????  I wonder what was added/changed to this basemap.  If it is better than that of the Nav 1.05 in my sportrak pro, then I just might be interested in changing my sportrak pro basemap to this one?

Hmmmm

:) Why not just go ahead to basemap 1.10?

Firmware 4.0 is now available at < http://groups.yahoo.com/group/m330/files/ >

A WORD OF ADVICE !!!
Delete current basemap and install Basemap 1.01
< http://www.navicache.com/meridian_basemaps/ >
(This frees up memory to install the larger 4.0 firmware.)

Install 4.0. After update make sure and clear the memory as instructed.

Then reinstall the basemap you had (or prefer).
