I had to download each cache using the “download fox file” button and save to my downloads file on PC. Then plug in the gps, and in file explorer, open up the Magellan and look for the file “geocaches” and drag and drop the gpx files there. Worked OK, but would sometimes miss some files completely. It’s been very frustrating. My old explorist is also running very slow, so am now in the market for another that works for paperless caching. Just not enough clear info, and to many varied opinions to make a clear choice yet. Sigh.
This is what we do as well to eek out a few more years of use with our two eXplorist GCs. One thing we recently encountered was that, after installing new anti-virus software on one of our computers, we needed to "tell" the software that the GPS was a known/trusted device before the computer would allow us to browse to the Geocaching folder (or even open the directory) on our GPS.

I suggest checking this post out and translating to German - I think it may help you!
