Question about Magellan Meridian Color GPS Receiver
Try reloading the firmware, its available on the Magellan website.
You may need some of the back door commands. There is wonderful trouble shooting information at www.mtgc.org/robertlipe/MeridianFAQ/ start reading about page 12. If you need to reload the master maps, they are on your MapSend Streets disk. With the laters firmware update I can use a 1GB SD card but I have not been able to get a 2 GB card to work.
Magellan no longer supports this device, so contacting them is a waste of time, they are rude, stupid, and won't tell you anything even if they know it.

Tips for a great answer:
In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:
Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
Hack above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.
Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
