Question about Magellan eXplorist 210 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Loading Topo maps...210 says invalid base map??

I just got my eXplorist 210 and got the software installed. I saved a region with Topo--the bold T selected--but when I turned on my unit; it says I have an invalid base map and it gets stuck on 'loading' for ever...or until I remove the batteries.

Am I saving the MapSend maps correctly? Does a Topo map get saved else where?? Thanks in advance for your help.

To get the base map and to get your unit functioning again:
Install the firmware again:

Go to: http://www.magellangps.com/support/product.asp?prodid=1114

Or, if this doesn´t work, go to www.magellangps.com, click on"support", click on "legacy products" (left) and click on "eXplorist210 Europe" (do NOT click on "eXplorist 210 North America")

On this page click under Updates/Upgrades on "version 2.57", and follow the instructions. You will have to register your GPS, register it under a European country.

After you have installed the firmware you will have the basemap and some new windows on the GPS. Good luck and enjoy!

Explorist 210 no base map


I solved this problem by gonig to the secret menu by holding the nav + power. I entered the value # 95 in the menu. This will let you format the memory area in the unit then I down loaded the latest firmware update from magellan.com and installed it on the
unit.I had already made a copy of the files on the unit in my hard drive so i copied the files back to my unit so that i did not loose anything important like poi's and geocaches etc...

PS when I did the firmware up date the base map must have been restored.
