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.

NMEA communication does not work ( but file transfer is OK)


Try rebooting windows, with gps off connect the cable to gps.

Go out side get a good gps signals on nav menu.

Set the gps communications menu to , nmea, 2.1

Plug the device into a good usb port.

If you look under modems, in control panel you should see a new modem called explorist xxx

If you look at the properties for that you can see its com port number.

I just tried this program http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPS/

and it views nmea from the explorist, just set the com port to the one in the explorist modem .

No communication with computer


I would try downloading the USB driver from magellan (if they offer it).  You may also be able to get the driver from C-Map USA as the do the map software for magellan.

USB drivers


Hi there,

I have a same problem, but it was solved.
You can go to magellangps.com website, then go to support.
There you will be able to download the driver.
But you may need to register first.

Happy trying.
