ditto what Miragee has said. I download gpx. files into GSAK and convert them into .upt files for an explorist.

Doesn't the Magellan Geocache Manager program handle LOC files? It should be on the CD that came with your GPS.

(I also use GSAK with my eXplorist and haven't used the Magellan program in a while)

Yes, I'd assume that the Magellan software that came with the unit would do it. I played with it some when my eXplorist was new, and decided that GSAK was a way better tool.

 

EasyGPS will handle loc files, but it won't OUTPUT .upt files, which is the file format that the eXplorist uses.

It does export .upt files. It just doesn't send .gs Geocaching POI files.

The Magellan Geocaching Manager will handle .loc files and when transferring to the GPSr does transfer them as .gs files. If your trying to move the .loc files directly onto the GPSr then that will not work, you must first open them in either Geocaching Manager, GSAK or a similar program.
