I had the same problem. Was able to fix it as follows:
1. Turn unit off (pull battery if on/off won't respond) 2. Plug unit into PC with USB cable 3. Hold the menu key and the joystick in the "up" position and power unit on. Make sure you H O L D all three buttons as described until unit is fully powered on. 4. This should allow the unit to go into maintenance/disk access mode. Go to the Magellan website and download the newer version of the system (ver 1.4 as of this post). 5. Follow the install directions.
After doing this, my unit came back on just fine. From what I've read, ver 1.0 of the system has some issues.

My GPS has a warning sign that comes on when I turn it on saying 1000 GPX files loaded.Please consolidate additional files, I can't download any new caches I get can you tell me anything to fix it.


It sounds like the maximum number of GPX file types your GPS can manage is 1,000. You'll need to delete as many existing GPX files as there are new that you want to add, ie: If you want to add 150 new waypoints (a.k.a. Geocaches a.k.a. GPX files) you'll should delete 151 (or more) GPX files from the GPS. That way, you'll have 999 GPX files loaded - and won't see the message complaining of 1,000 GPX files.
Running with a minimal number of GPX files may allow your device to run faster - as it doesn't need to load and calculate distances for 1,000 GPX file points. Less can be more - if you don't do CITO, Webcam, Multis, etc. or any type that has a difficulty / terrain ratings greater than 2 or 3, don't even download them. It's just clutter for your GPS to track and manage.
Look at the filters to select the types you want - either on Geocaching.com or the software (GSAK?) you use assemble and prepare for loading them into your GPS.

How can I set up to user grid a Magellan eXplorist GC?


Hello
I've the user manual for Magellan eXplorist. But I can't send it to you by this window, as it does not allow me to upload PDF files by it. If you send your Email address to me by Fixya Comment box, I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.
