Magellan Explorist Export from GSAK


Recommended Posts

I tried going through the GPS tab and Exporting to Explorist, but that does not seem to load to my GPS'r. It only create a GS file for the Eplorist Geocache Manager. Am I missing some step?

The Geocache Manager will accept .loc or .gpx files for import, but will export a .gs file--like GSAK is doing. You just need to export the .gs file to the geocaches folder in the explorist's internal memory or sd card (i.e., what CanClan said).


Optionally, you can choose to write a .upt file in a POI folder, if you want the cache information loaded as regular POIs.

I use the 500LE for all my geocaching. I just use GSAK to create the .gs file & save it on the hard drive. Then I use Windows Explorer to drag & drop the file in the Explorist geocaching folder. Really pretty easy. I also create the .wpt file that Mapsend uses to display the caches. The Explorist looks like any other hard drive once it is connected by the USB cable.
