Mio/Magellan Cyclo 505 mapping...

Postby RonK » 29 Jun 2014, 8:31am

Has anyone got a Cyclo 505 with UK/Euro mapping? Would you be interested in an exchange of map files?

I plan to zip up the the map file directory on my Australia/New Zealand unit and upload it to Google drive.

I'm guessing that to change maps, all I need to do is back up my Cyclo and replace the map files directory. Be warned though, I'm not yet certain about this, until I get a set of map files to try.

The Cyclo has gone on sale in the US now so I'll be trying to get a copy of North American maps too.
The theory is simple: a) cycling is inherently fun, and b) the less weight you carry, the more fun it is.

I'm planning to cycle in the UK this 2017 summer and am interested in obtaining UK and European maps for my Australian Cyclo 505. I find the "Surprise Me" feature of the Cyclo useful and don't really want to buy a European/UK Cyclo 505, but am happy to pay for the maps and am hoping someone in the Forum can assist me by:

Advising where I can obtain the maps and, if possible,
How I load them to my Australian Cyclo 505 (I'm not particularly technically minded).

I hope this is not too big an ask and do appreciate any assistance. I would be pleased to assist / provide maps to anyone planning to cycle Australia.

Thanks everyone.
