Question about Magellan eXplorist 500 GPS Receiver

Exlorist 500 needs a charger

My husband lost the charger for his Magellan Explorist 500 and I cannot find a similar one on the internet. The unit is a couple of years old (gray and black) and it has a weird charger connection, not just a little plug in. It clips on in the back. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and can you help me find one??? Thanks!

You can try to update your GPS firmware.
Before you update your Magellan eXplorist 500 firmware or install a custom basemap, Magellan recommends that you backup all of your GPS data.
Click here to download the firmware update (Version 2.57)
Connect your Magellan GPS unit via the USB drive.
Double-click on the update file to begin the installation process.

Hi Guys: On turning on my explorist 400 a message appears. UNIT CURRENTLEY CONTAINS NO MAPS! INITIATING MAP UPLOAD This message wont go away, and all buttons refuse to work. The only way I can turn it off...


Jeff, I had the same problem with my explorist 500. Your unit lost the "BASEMAP.MGI " file. You will need to get a copy of that file. Then install it.
Try this site http://imhz.com/2006/05/my-explorist-is-screwed.html
(I would recomend all explorist GPS owners copy and save that file and store it in a safe place. I have mine on a thumb drive).

eXplorist units have also some hidden and service functions. Like, if unit is off, you can to press:

- IN + PWR - to full selftest of unit (screen test, keypad test, NMEA test)
- OUT + PWR - to serial port test
- ESC + PWR - to burn-in process
- LIGHT + ENTER + RWR - tp uploading of new firmware
- NAV + PWR - to call Service Function window (see below)
- NAV + MENU + PWR - to force power off, equal remove batteries.
- GOTO + OUT + POWER - clear memory and set all settings as default.


IN + PWR helped to power up my unit.

Zoom in and out buttons not working properly


Unfortunately, this is a problem with the keys and their contacts with the circuit board. I have had to return mine a couple of times to get this repaired. If you're out of warranty, they have a trade-up program which is a better deal than repairing the unit.
