My explorist Gc unit...on start up is looking for an active tracking file which is missing. I have a copy on my desktop. How can I get it back into the unit?


You can download the US basemap for the 500 at
http://www.megaupload.com/it/?d=EJTNQH03
Rename it BASEMAP.MGI
Then copy it in the directory "background maps" in the SD card of your 500, by using a SD card reader/writer.
Insert the SD card in your 500 and connect it to your PC; then turn it on;it will turn on regularly, because the basemap in the card will be detected; turn it to USB file transfer mode, and copy the basemap from the SD card to the directory "background maps" of the 500.
If you already have the file ..just rename it like I said ..and copy it ..using the sd card in the reader...Than if it is not functional ..just reset it ..and reload the file the proper way by reloading maps..

Your maps are currupted. Can't tell you where to find new ones. The company does not support map updates or have any old discs with maps for downloading from computers.

My Magellan 1200 car GPS says "The USB has been connected to the unit. Please follow instructions for updating maps or software". This happened before and It started to work properly later that day. I...


The USB connection to the GPS serves 2 purposes. It charges the battery and interfaces with the computer to update and or get new maps.
There are separate chargers so you do not have to hook it up to the pc.
There are also car chargers for extended service in the car.
The indication of updating may be needed but you won't know unless you select it.
I updated my Magellan 1412 recently, I downloaded a file, and when I connected the GPS to the pc, I was instructed to run the program I downloaded.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

My nextar x3-08 wont read the sd card


I called Nextar and you have to let its battery drain completely and then plug it in to charge for 5 hours. I guess it a glitch in the system :(

This is because your map file has either been deleted or corrupted and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info. Too much info to copy & paste here:

yup, the data card can get corrupted. I have seen the update disks on ebay. if your unit has a symbol in the bottom left of the screen that looks like a lantern, you also have an old firmware version. the upgrade woudl be the way to go.

These units use a standard 1gb SD card.... I have several of these units and bought the upgrade for a couple that were old. I did have the same problem with one, had to format the card, reload the map data and problem solved.
