Posted by sledgehampster on Dec. 20 2002,10:43 amMagellan has posted updates for the Meridian and SporTrak lines. Both updates include support for the new MapSend Worldwide Basemap software.
The MapSend® WorldWide Basemap site states that the MAP 330 is also supported.
Looks like we'll get an update for Christmas/NewYears!
Posted by ChrisD on Dec. 22 2002,7:46 amThe manual posted in the support area does not seem to include the latest updates. Did I miss something?
Does anyone have into (addendum) that go into more detail than what's listed in the "what's new" part of the release notes?

I'm not sure what you are asking, Chris, but the updates are posted on Magellan's website, and I'm sure they're not up on the Navicache page as they have had server problems the past few days. I imagine they will be posted soon.
Posted by sledgehampster on Dec. 22 2002,7:26 pmI bought my MAP 330 in Christmas 2000 and bought my mom one Labor Day weeknd of 2002. The manuals are only SLIGHTLY more detailed now. The manual in her's was up to ver 1.56 and her's shipped with ver 2.10!!!
Apparently (owners)manual updates are NOT priority.
Posted by ChrisD on Dec. 23 2002,5:34 amThe manual posted on Magellan's site (RevisionB) does not seem to document the new features in the latest firmware.
I was hoping for something more than the release notes.

You meant the owners manual .pdf.....
Yes, I notice they dont update those very often.
It seems one thing about Magellan is they are usually slow to update things on their website...
I also hear that the Map 330 V2.10 is being shipped in newer units.....They still have v2.08 up on the support site...They never put v2.09 up, either....
Does anyone have the v2.10 zip file they could send me?

I spoke to Magellan Tech support and they said that Ver 2.10 was a revamp of 2.08 to support the new display that they are now using.
My mom has Ver 2.10 and the difference that I saw was the default contrast is darker, but at the same time the display is "Clearer" looking.
I WOULD NOT INSTALL 2.10 IN AN OLDER UNIT!!! even if I had it.
Someone on Yahoo Group stated that Tech Support said to expect the MAP 330 update in a month or so.
