Question about Magellan RoadMate 1210 Car GPS Receiver
Turn on your 1210 once it boots to the magellan screen press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, once it shuts off, power it back on by pressing and holding the power button for up to ten seconds then let it load.
if that fails,power it up and try the reset button, (either on the bottom or on the side)the little pinhole, and use a paper clip to depress the reset

It might be a software problem or a glitch during the bootup. Try rebooting/resetting the unit by switching off the unit and holding the switch while the gps is off. then switch it back on. If that doesn't work, try using the reset (pinhole).
The software might be also be corrupted, if that's the case, try loading a software update, it's free. you need a USB cable a windows computer and a stable internet connection. You need to charge the GPS too. IF you need assistance in how to do the software update, try calling magellan tech support, they'll walk you through. BTW, I am a Magellan Tech Support Agent

Jossie, The cable that connects your hard drive to your main board could be loose. If it's not loose, then it's your hard drive. The only thing you can do (if it's not the cable) is send it in for a new hard drive. Unsure what the costs will be but the magellan logo screen is produced from memory on the main board while anything after that is when the hard drive takes over. -Daniel

Hello. My recommendation is for you to call Magellan directly, get an estimate and then if you choose to, send it in for repair.
You may ask a technical support question or request a repair and get a Return Authorization (RA) number by phone. An RA number is required prior to shipping your product to Magellan for repair.

This is normal, this come straight of the satellite. To speed up process or bypass, reboot system. To Manually reboot this model, turn unit off like normal. Then when turning on, keep button down as it fires up, DO NOT release on button, keep it down until all fires up and even about 10 seconds passed, then let go. This reboots it and cleans up a lot of ****. Thanks Mike. Please if this helps, please give me 4 thumbs up, to help me and others. if that dont work, turn it off again fully charge it then reboot it manually again. This should do it!
