Electronics Technician: Josh, Technician replied 9 months ago

Thank you for the new information.

Did you factory reset the Magellan then try to update it?

Ask Your Own GPS Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Will be at a computer in about 30 mins will try that then. How do you do factory reset
Electronics Technician: Josh, Technician replied 9 months ago

On the back of your GPS, there is a pin hole.

Place a paper clip into the hole and hold it for 20 seconds and the GPS should restart.

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
There is no hole on my particular model
Electronics Technician: Josh, Technician replied 9 months ago

You mentioned that you have a RoadMate 9212T-LM but the picture appears to be a different model.

That's the model number that came up when I plugged gps into computer
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Do you by any chance recognize the model that I have?
Electronics Technician: Josh, Technician replied 9 months ago

Yes, I was able to locate the model.

Unfortunately, I am not able to pull up the reset option for that model but you can purchase the GPS for around $25 if you need to replace it.
