    If the basemap is missing from



    Internal memory - Background maps - basemap, you will need a replacement for the file.

    How do restore a basemap



    Basemap can be downloaded from

    http://rhamphorinkx.newmail.ru/maps/



    These downloads are in rar compressed format if you need a free decompressor one can be downloaded from www.rarlabs.com





    Decompress the file. Rename attached file to "BASEMAP.MGI" then copy it to the Explorist internal memory Background maps folder.





    Finally, BASEMAP.MGI must have the system attribute set before the Explorist will recognize the file. Use the DOS command "attrib s+ BASEMAP.MGI", executed from the folder containing BASEMAP.MGI or providing the appropriate path.

    Your product is discontinued its hard to find basemaps, so try na_lb112 (ex_400-500-600_na).rar

  • Ekse Jun 27, 2008

    You can skip the part about system attribute, its already set!



    heres the file

    http://rhamphorinkx.newmail.ru/maps/na_l...



    Copy attached "BASEMAP.MGI" to eXplorist, in "Background maps" folder.

  • Ekse Jun 27, 2008

    you can also try the other basemap found on the server

    http://rhamphorinkx.newmail.ru/maps/



    Empty - ex 100

    I suspect it may be empty.

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.
