Question about Magellan eXplorist 500 GPS Receiver
Is there a replacement tag that could convert the 6 pin connector to a newer style so I wouldn't have to screw in the cable each time?
Here is what I did to fix mine. I removed the screw from the plug and then using a 3/8 inch drill bit, put a small hole in the back side (away from the pins). Replace the screw. This small depression allows the screw to firmly attach to the gps.

A new cable will work for a while on mine. The tip of the screw gets bad faster than the unit female part.
