Where to buy LCD replacement

I was looking for my Explorist 100 yesterday, and found it in a bag with the screen partially cracked. The unit itself works fine, can see about 50% of screen.

Need new screen for magellon explorist 100 gps

My recommendation would be simply to replace entire unit unless you have experience fixing electronics.

I have a anyo modle no RL-4920

well i dropped it again from a grocery bag it was insiee it and it got fixed by itself now its 100 percent working weird huh

My eXplorist XL is locked up

Error message at start-up reads: "Press ENTER to continue NAND, Press ESC to cancel". Either choice I seclect and the unit shuts-down.
"With you XL turned off press nav + power; then change the numbers in the box from 00 to 95 by using the joystick and then press the joystick itself; (ENTER), accepting what is proposed...


After turning the gps on again and pressing enter the NAND will be configured and your gps will become in order again. Your system will immediately start to re-set itself.

If necessary, in usb file transfer mode, reload the basemap in the directory background maps..."

The only difference is that I had to load my SD card in the unit for it to work during the FORMAT.

My unit is NOW re-booting back to normal!

Cracked explorist 200 screen

It is not a major job. I've replaced a few now, though I haven't found a good source for screens other than dead receivers on ebay. Work in a clean place. Take the screws off of the back, including the ones under the battery cover. Locate the ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board. Use the tip of the screwdriver to gently slide the plastic locking bar over, and then the ribbon will easily slide out. If the ribbon doesn't readily come out, you probably didn't get the bar correct. You may have to pull gently to pop the old screen off. Put the replacement ribbon in and slide the locking bar back over, then put it all back together. Be careful and make sure that the gasket is properly seated before you tighten the screws.

Replacement keypad membrane

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.

Configure NAND on Start up

I finally wound up deleating the base map useing the Maintenance codes, which has now left me with another problem and that How do you rload the basemaps from Mapsend Lite?


Magellan Explorist 500 LE Power

eXplorist units have also some hidden and service functions. Like, if unit is off, you can to press:

- IN + PWR - to full selftest of unit (screen test, keypad test, NMEA test)
- OUT + PWR - to serial port test
- ESC + PWR - to burn-in process
- LIGHT + ENTER + RWR - tp uploading of new firmware
- NAV + PWR - to call Service Function window (see below)
- NAV + MENU + PWR - to force power off, equal remove batteries.
- GOTO + OUT + POWER - clear memory and set all settings as default.

IN + PWR helped to power up my unit.

Year old explorist 100 doesn't work anymore

Even though your sister has lost the receipt, many stores have the ability to look up purchases at the store provided she used a credit card. You can not do this over the phone. You will need to have your sister go to the store and ask them to look up her purchase with her credit card. If it is a recent purchase and still within the product warranty you may be able to get a replacement. Good luck.
