The gps was dropped and the inner screen is broken, can I get it repaired and how much will it cost?


You can try to assemble a new screen

or send you damaged one to magellan and purchase a new or refurbished one at a discounted price.

Tip

Upload and Download to an Explorist 100


Summary:
Even though the Explorist 100 does not come with a data cable, or software to download or upload data to a computer, it is possible using an after-market cable and a nifty piece of software.
What I use: Note: be sure to download the software for the USB adaptor from here
  • GPSBabel software (free) from http://www.gpsbabel.org
  • A macintosh iMac and a Macintosh Macbook (but it should work fine on a PC)

What I do:
  • attach the cable to the back of the 100 as shown here
  • READ the pages at pc-mobile carefully!
  • Either use the GUI version or command line version of GPSbabel

See examples below for some usage tips....
Examples:
  • [command line] - output to Google earth format!
  1. ~/applications/gps/current/gpsbabel -t -i 'magellan' -f /dev/cu.usbserial -o kml -F 2-feb-08-track.kml
  2. ~/applications/gps/current/gpsbabel -w -i 'magellan' -f /dev/cu.usbserial -o kml -F 2-feb-08-waypoint.kml
  3. ~/applications/gps/current/gpsbabel -r -i 'magellan' -f /dev/cu.usbserial -o kml -F 2-feb-08-route.kml
where...
-t = tracks
-w = waypoints
-r = routes
-i = input format
-f = input file 
-o = output format
-F = output file

Troubleshooting:
  1. If you get a speed or connectivity error from GPSbabel:
  • [on a Mac] check to see if /dev/cu.usbserial exists usng a terminal
  • retry the command ... sometimes the 100 doesn't seem to initialise properly
  • Check the FAQ's at http://www.gpsbabel.org



[Note: there may be other types of cable / software available, other than the items mentions here]

Need new screen for magellon explorist 100 gps


http://cgi.ebay.com/Magellan-eXplorist-100-200-210-300-400-LCD-Screen-/350437050321?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5197ad07d1

My recommendation would be simply to replace entire unit unless you have experience fixing electronics.

Magellan explorist 100 is 2 hours out on time and I don't know how to reset it.


Go to Preferences and select Restart GPS. Then select Enter Coordinates and set your local time (no need to change coordinates so just press enter till you get to the time field). Hit Escape and now the time should be correct.

Replacement keypad membrane


If you look on magellan website it states they no longer have or support replacement parts for older gps models.
You can find an explorist for parts on ebay.
I own a explorist 100, 400, 500. I believe the key pads are all the same. If you can not find one, I will sell you the pad from the explorist 100 for 30 dollars plus shipping.
