    I too experienced this same proble yesterday. I contacted Magellan support by email and this is the reply I received:

    " I understand that your unit displays press ENTER to configure NAND. I would
    request you to press Menu, Nav and Power button at the same time. If the
    issue still persist you would have to send in your unit for repair."



    I have not had a chance to try this but will do so as soon as I get home. Has anyone found a solution that works yet. My unit worked great until I upgraded the system. It worked fine that night but the next day I received the above error.

With you 500 turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers 00 in 95 by using the joystick and and then press the joystick itself; accept what proposed.
after turning the gps on again and pressing enter the NAND will be configured and your gps will become in order again. if necessary, in usb file transfer mode, reload the basemap in the directory background maps

Error message at start-up reads: "Press ENTER to continue NAND, Press ESC to cancel". Either choice I seclect and the unit shuts-down.

"With you XL turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers in the box from 00 to 95 by using the joystick and then press the joystick itself; (ENTER), accepting what is proposed...

Either FORMAT or SCAN...

After turning the gps on again and pressing enter the NAND will be configured and your gps will become in order again. Your system will immediately start to re-set itself.

If necessary, in usb file transfer mode, reload the basemap in the directory background maps..."
My unit is NOW re-booting back to normal!

When starting my new tomtom accidentally installed


hello. i recommend that you do a factory reset as follows: With the device turned off, press and hold the TALK/SEND, END and POWER buttons until you see a message on the screen. Release the TALK/SEND, END and POWER buttons. Press the VOLUME UP button to perform the hard reset, or press any other button to cancel the reset. Once the restore screen appears press Volume Up to restore the device to its factory settings or any other button to cancel. Once complete press Volume Up to reboot.

My eXplorist XL is locked up


Error message at start-up reads: "Press ENTER to continue NAND, Press ESC to cancel". Either choice I seclect and the unit shuts-down.
"With you XL turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers in the box from 00 to 95 by using the joystick and then press the joystick itself; (ENTER), accepting what is proposed...

Either FORMAT or SCAN... LET IT RUN!

The only difference is that I had to load my SD card in the unit for it to work during the FORMAT.

My unit is NOW re-booting back to normal!

I need more info to possibly help.
Do you have info on the SD card you need to keep?(just use a SD card reader for your computer to reformat to FAT) Be sure to copy all files to a safe place FIRST!
You could also try this combination, to clear ALL memory then reboot GPS unit.
1. Press and hold "Enter"+"Menu"+"PWR"
2. Follow GPS units On-Screen directions.
If GPS unit "locks-up" press and hold keys in this order, "Goto"+"ESC"+"Enter".(Forces GPS unit Off)
good luck

Frozen screen when turned on


Kevin, Hmm... it worked fine the first two times you ran it, then all of a sudden it freezes at the user screen?? I'm not sure if your able to do this, but at the user menu, try pressing the (-)zoom out key and the repeat button a the same time. -If it does bring up the "secret" menu, try clearing user data. -If you have a program that allows you to update the software, version 4.32 I'm guessing (or 5.14) then at that "secret" menu select NAND Flash Format and re-load the software. If you can't access the "secret" menu and it locks up hard at the user menu w/out any responsiveness, I would suspect the hard drive is either bad or has corrupt data. I'm not sure if you can order just the hard drive from magellan/thales/tomtom/shaw but if you can then just replace the hard drive, nand flash format (above) and re-install your software via usb. Additionally, not that it helps your problem, but atleast you would know the pwr and keypad work if this works, press Enter, Cancel and power button at the same time, as this SHOULD power off your unit. Let me know if any new symptoms/problems come up or if you need further instructions. -Daniel
