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]

Map update error problem with Magellan 4250


I called tech support and they said that the update requires XP SP1 or SP2, NOT SP3. I have not tried it yet, but they told me it was a problem with not being compatible with XP service pack 3

I don't know if this is much of a solution, but from what I understand from my extensive research on this product (I bought one online and have been trying to get updated maps), Magellan no longer supports this unit. I looked on their website to confirm, and on the "Scheduled Map Updates" list, the Magellan 300 has no further updates available. Apparently, this has been the case for the last few years.

Magellan Roadmate 800 - External Power Connection


The only thing I can think to add is a general question to Magellan asking why they let a four-year-old child design the power connector as "lightly" soldered to the main circuit board. Very dumb...

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.
