BB, Somehow the update procedure corrupted some files.  If the unit is under warranty, call Magellan and return it.

If out of Warranty, install new batteries, attach GPS to PC and then simultaneously HOLD DOWN === UP ARROW, MENU and POWER ON.

This sequence should get the GPS to attach and create a virtual drive F:\Magellan.

Do not give up as sometimes this takes two or three attempts.

At this stage you have to replace all the files EXCEPT FOR THE MAP FILE.

Is this does not work then try the 310 Service Sequence BACK MENU BUTTONS AND POWER ON simultaneously.  I forget but you should see a master item to connect to the GPS.

Good Luck,

So recently I updated my software to 2.15 and everything was running smoothly until I did that. Now on the first loading screen, the dial appears and makes a full revolution before stopping. Nothing else happens or appears except the magellan logo. Tried connecting to PC while device is off and holding Up, Menu and Power, but the same thing happens. Resetting the device also doesn't work. Batteries are good and working. Any help?
