(Sorry--could admin move this to the GC thread? I didn't realize I had posted here.)

As a matter of curiosity, I purchased a subscription to NG TOPO for my eXplorist; the maps are obviously a drastic improvement over the former eXplorist map, as is the new basemap. Nice. Kudos to Magellan on the upgrade.

But I also have the NG TOPO CDs that I purchased a few years ago and which I still use on my Triton. When attempting to transfer maps from my Triton to Vantage Point, I have no issues. When attempting to upload the same maps from VP to my eXplorist, I am told that the maps were not authorized for that device. Is there a way that I can use the NG TOPO CDs--not the online subscription--to load maps on my eXplorist GC?

The problem is that National Geographic did not create a patch that would allow you to use the current Triton NG users to also create .rmp files for the Explorist.

Unfortunately, there is no way to change the serial number of the NG maps you have.  In a nutshell, you are just out of Luck like all of us.

Sorry,

Mike
