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

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!

The Program for Sea Charts you are looking for is called, Bluenav xl3. Here is the information about these charts:

Note: You cannot combine MapSend BlueNav charts with any other MapSend applications on the same card and you will need a Secure Digital card reader/writer and you will need to be familiar with saving and renaming files on the reader.

OS Compatibility:
Is My MapSend® Program Compatible with Windows Vista?

Problemi con explorist 500


Ciao, mandami una email a casa1111@libero.it altrimenti tramite questa via ci mettiamo fino all'anno prossimo. hai messo una basemap europea sulla SD card? nella directory "Backgroud maps"? se hai fatto così avrebbe dovuto sentirtela. Se in ogni caso metti la basemap europea nella directory USBTRANS della SD card dovrebbe caricartela nella memoria interna del GPS (dopo il caricamento non è più presente nella SD card, per cui se devi ripetere l'operazione devi rimettercela).
Ciao

Magellan MapSend Topo 3-D USA software won't run with Windows VIsta


I don't know that this is a solution, but I'll give you my experience in having run failures in XP. None of my Magellan software would run after updating to Internet Explorer 7. After considerable work with Dell and MSoft, they were unable to resolve the issue. The application would run on restart, but after opening IE 7, would no longer function. I have uninstalled IE 7 and am now using Firefox getting the Magellan software to run successfully. Reviews on Magellan aren't very good; National Geographic has a great Topo program if you are looking.

Replacement keypad membrane


If you look on magellan website it states they no longer have or support replacement parts for older gps models.
You can find an explorist for parts on ebay.
I own a explorist 100, 400, 500. I believe the key pads are all the same. If you can not find one, I will sell you the pad from the explorist 100 for 30 dollars plus shipping.
