The mount for the 210 won't fit.
The Magellan mount is good with some issues, the RAM mount is the best windshield mount I've found.
Look through the accessories posts for some reviews of mounts.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Thanks Guys that is good to know. Now if that ugly windshield mount left over from my Explorist 210 will fit, heck I'll use that too!

Right. I use the one from my Motorola cellphone, as well as the car gps cables too. I'm lucky, all my toys use the same plug !

All USB are on the same standard so you should be able to use the cord or plug the unit into any external USB power source that you would like.

I was wondering if my Garmin DC Power cord will work on the Explorist 610? Should they not have the same rating?

Thanks
