Explorist 310 and Pocket Query

Recommended Posts

I have an Explorist 310 and just updated my membership to premium. I made a pocket query and have received it via email. Now I can't figure out how to load the information on my GPS, please help!

If you have a windows pc get the Vantage point program from Magellan. Click on the Geocache icon and find your PQ. Then sync pc to gps. This method will get you cache images on your gps.

I received an Explorist last Christmas, and haven't messed around with Vantage Point too much. I definitely have never loaded a PQ with it. I use the "drag and drop" method, where you sort of treat your GPS as a thumb drive connected to your computer. Rather than me typing it all out, here's a link from Magellan's website that describes both methods. link to support.magellan.com page

I've written a 'how to' guide for the Magellan GPS, how to get the PQ, transfer it into the GPS directly and using Vantage Point (which also allows you to transfer cache page photos too!). The document is a PDF file so you'll need Adobe Reader.

(You'll find other guides on that link too for Garmin and TomTom)
