The beauty of it is. I may be in the UK but my GC has come all the way from Florida. So the software does work universally. I wonder why you don't have it on your site?

I think I know why I couldn't find it on magellan's site; your link is for the Europe version of magellan's website. Does anyone know if I can use that software for the U.S. version of the explorist GC?

Here you go. It's titled 'GC software reinstallation'.

Do you have a link to the re-install page? I don't need it but it would be nice to have it just in case. Right now I am on Magellan's explorist GC page and I don't see it.

Hi there, I joined the forum to look for help but it took two days before I was accepted and could scream HELP!!! in here. As it turns out I solved the problem and wanted to share my solution in case anyone else has the same issue. Unsure if there is another thread about it...

I was caching on Sunday and my GC switched itself off, I switched it on, it switched off. I assumed my batts were dead so changed for a fresh set. It then came on on a white screen, further investigation on this forum and others told me it was the developers screen. i tried the master reset, the three button press, new batteries, shouting at it and then screaming at it, all to no avail. It was consistently stuck on the dev screen. I could not find a solution.

I went to the Magellan site to see if there was anyway I could upgrade the firmware but it kept crashing. This was a Sunday so the helpline was closed too. I then returned to the Magellan support page and at the bottom was a complete system reinstall with idiot proof instructions. Which I did, it's V1.5 and it chuffin worked! I then updated to 1.7 and it still worked. Phew! Thanks for the advice I've found in here it helped but didn't solve. But I got there. Woo Hoo.
