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.

The zoom (+) key on my Magellan Explorist 210 GPS has become very sticky, and only works (eventually) if hit sharply. Is it possible (or practicable) for it to be repaired?


Yes it can be fixed but requires the unit to be taken apart. Most likely the rubber keys have lost the contact surface through use over time. Could be dirt on the pad surface...(inside)

Hello, I have an Explorist 600 that got wet and no longer turns on. Can you fix this and if so at what cost?


  • Try to call the tech support of magellan and advise them that your unit is no longer working. If you still have the receipt and still under warranty then they will fix it for free or if its not they can fix it for free for one time courtesy. And they are also offering a trade in for cheap price.

Replacement parts for Magellan eXplorist GPS


You need to be brave, but it is pretty simlple. Basically you are going to clean the rubber keypad and circuit board contacts. These contacts develop a film over time that needs to be removed. That is the main reason telephone and remote control keypads fail over time.

1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove 5 screws holding the bady together and separate the backplate from the main body.
3. Now carefully lift the circuit board out of the main body. Do not disconnect anything, but be careful with the rubber seal that fits between the back and front plates.
4. With the circuit board laying flat on your work surface, remove the rubber keypad. It is held in place over the joystick. Carefully lift it off the joystick and set it aside.
5. Use a clean pencil eraser and lightly rub the contacts on the circuit board. Do the same thing on the keypad by pushing the little knobs out where you can rub them. Blow away the dust.
6. Use a Q-tip with some alcohol to clean the contacts on the curcuit board and on the keypad.
7. When the alcohol is dry, put everything back together in the opposite order.

This should be good enough, but if it does not solve the issue, then buy a rubber keypad repair kit (an example is at http://www.mgchemicals.com/downloads/appguide/appguide0206.pdf) and try again.

Good luck.

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 .

It is more than likely a defective USB cable. I am on my third cable. They don't stand up to the abuse.

Hello, Is this a new unit or one that you have had for a while? I find on my 500 that it takes some time to get used to pushing the button as this button can go sideways as well as straight down. It took me quite some time to get used to it. Try experimenting with different techniques to get it right. If you are having the same problem I was I think you may find a technique that will work for you. Good Luck! Dr. Know

Here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/eXplorist_600_en.pdf Page 107 of the manual (page 114 pdf) explains the reset procedure which may solve your problem if you can access any menus. You could also try removing the battery, waiting a while and then replacing the battery. If none of that helps, the contact details for magellan support are at the end of the manual - all reports I have had are that they are quite good. Hope this helps :)
