Hello, and thank you for using Fixya.. This is a common issue, which can be resolved by a three step process. You will need to download the latest WIndows drivers for the device. Then you will need update it to the lastes firmware ( version 1.89) and then load the newest map pack into the device. If you go to this link, http://www.magellangps.com/support/ And then click on the right where you see the drop down menu for "my magellan is" choose explorist, then choose the model family, either 210 europe or north america.. Then it will show you all the downloads for the device, the windows driver, the firmware update, and the map software. You will need to download and install all three in that order..

Hi do you still have the software that came with the gps as it sounds like their is corrupt data on the gps.
You will need to reinstall all software and load up all the maps that you need.

first Perform a hardware reset to return the minor settings of the GPS to the original condition. Press the small "Reset" button on the side of the unit for several seconds until it powers off and powers back on.
If that doesn't solve the problem, then it means you will have to perform a firmware upgrade to put the GPS back in order.
Download and install the Content Manager software available for free from the Magellan support website. Connect your GPS to your computer with a USB cable, and the software will automatically search for firmware updates for your GPS.
Once this is done your Magellan eXplorist 210 GPS Receiver should be back to normal.
