Question about Magellan RoadMate™ 1212 Car GPS Receiver

Roadmate 1212, the system will not accept the city I try to enter

Roadmate 1212
Sitting at the dining room table and trying to plan a trip to Spring, Texas.

I press the “Enter Address” icon and it asks for City I enter “SPRING” and the system automatically wants to go to “Spring Twp, MI”. It will not accept “Spring” by itself and obviously I never get to the next step which is State.

I have pushed the “Reset” button but nothing changed.

I also took it and went for a ride in the car thinking that being in motion might be of help – it wasn’t.

Spring TX is a registered GPS location, the problem is with a wrong usage of your particular GPS.

If you have never used Spring TX as location before, by entering only Spring the GPS will return the first Spring in list, that is Spring Mi.

You need to enter the Zip code for Spring TX, the first time that you select this city.
After first time Spring TX will be displayed as previously selected City and pop up instead of Spring MI.

Read page 28 (20 on paper) on the PDF manual here.

Do not forget to give us feedback afterward.

Hello There

to reset your unit you need to have it switched on and press and hold the reset untill the unit turns off and on again. Hold the reset down for 5 to 10 seconds. That will reset the unit.

The unit is asking you for the city before state just doesn't make sense. I am very sure it is becuase the state is already inputed as MI. Having worked with the GPS units for some 10 years they always start with the big picture and narrow down, i.e State, city, town, road etc. Hope this helps.

Hi, You have to update the maps. You can download from their website.
Are you can do this. Manually check on google map, get any nearby city. Enter in the GPS, and move the map manually and set your destination in Spring, TX.

We have a very small dining room space, but would still like to put a dining room table and chair set there. Can anyone suggest the best way to furnish a small space like this?


The best dining room table shape for a room with limited space is a round table. You should look into finding one with an extension leaf if you have enough space to open it. Try looking for a table where you can fit more people around it by purchasing one with a pedestal base. This leaves more room for your guests legs without the legs of the table getting in the way.

How high above the dining room table should I hang my electric chandelier?


The height you hang your chandelier above your kitchen tabledepends on the wattage of the light bulbs and the of the chandelier. If you are using lower wattage light bulbs,you should hang the fixture about 2.5 feet above the center of your dining roomtable. If you are using higher wattagebulbs, I suggest hanging it 3 feet about the table so it is not too bright.

Are conference tables and dining room tables interchangeable?


I definitely suggest using your conference room table as adining room table because all you need to do is put some placemats and acenterpiece and it morphs into a dining table. I'm not sure that I'd recommend using your dining room table as aconference table because it might look out of place in an office. Also, conference tables tend to have holes inthe center for cords or phones to be plugged in to.
