Yes, the mapchanger should work fine on the Primo 2.0 that I put on the GM1210's. However... Since the GPS files are stored internally on the GM1210, I don't think it has enough internal storage for more than one map set (maps use a lot of space). It's also kind of a pain to update maps on the GM1210 since you need to copy them directly to your headunit (instead of just mounting an SD card on your PC and updating them that way on the GM1010, Dynavin N7 or Advent OGM-1).
But PM me and I'll send you a link to the latest available maps (I have both 2017Q3 HERE and 2017.09 TomTom maps) - while you can't have more than one map set installed at the same time on the GM1210, you may be able to at least upgrade the maps to the latest version. You might want to check the version of your maps first though (although I'm pretty sure they would be older than 2017Q3). Can check via Help->About->Content->Maps. In your PM, let me know what version you have.
Using less maps really doesn't speed up the start time any on the GM1210 because it runs WinCE 6.0, whereas the GM1010 runs WinCE 5.0 - with WinCE 6.0, the GPS app seems to load just as fast regardless of how many maps - must have better file system caching in WinCE 6.0 or something like that.
But, you may want to try putting TomTom maps on there instead - who knows, it may be better in your specific area. While I generally prefer HERE maps, I've been testing the TomTom maps on the Dynavin N7 lately (it comes with TomTom maps) and it gave me better routing to a place than I normally get with HERE maps, so who knows. :-) You can never have too many maps laying around. :-)
