Tip & How-To about Magellan eXplorist GPS

FIX Your Corroded Battery Contacts in the Magellan Explorist 510 610 and 710 GPS

Do not despair. Many users find that the batteries in their Magellan Explorist 510 610 and 710 GPS devices leak. The corrosion weakens the battery contacts and causes power not to be supplied to the GPS. Unfortunately Magellan does not sell or offer these critical parts. The Gelb Organization (http://www.gelb.com) has had the parts created so that the user can order a DIY kit to replace the bad parts. The parts are accompanied by a complete instruction manual on how to do the FIX IT.

New batteries installed and will not switch on?

Jim, Look for battery corrosion on the contacts. Also install some Lithium batteries and see if the unit will fire up. If the unit has battery contact problems, they are available on the www.gelb.com website or eBay. JG

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

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.
