If you need truck routes by the Rand Mcnally truckers map book, or for gps Pc Miler gps or Rand MCNally truckers gps, these are truck specific and will keep you on the truck route, if you are looking for it for your explorist, then you are out of luck. Sorry
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).
I had the same problem with mine, the AC adapter fails really quickly. Try to go to Radio Shack and get the 3-12v switch able AC adapter that is 1 amp, and select the 4.5 volt setting. This setting is a whole .5 volts less than the one that comes with GPS, but its the Amps that matters. Make sure you get the correct plug with the adapter, I got the "B" plug and follow the directions that came with the adapter to match the right polarity, or you will fry your GPS. Also, the computer just supplies enough power to run the GPS, but not to charge it as long as you have the USB 2.0 ports.
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.
