Here's waht I've discovered so far:

If you download a cache with pictures that are immebed in the description the the picutres seem to get transfered to the GC. Then, when you view the cache record on the GC and scroll down a bit, you will see a "Pictures" button that should have a count >0. If you push that button, you will see one of the pictures. If you push the joy stick left and right, you will go through the list of pictures.

This doesn't seem to work with picutres that in the cache record's "gallery" on geocaching.com. I'm still asking Magellan about that.

Here is the reply to the same question from Magellan techncial support:

Emmily (with two MMs) doesn't seem to answer my question (or write clear English.) (There go my Karma points!)


Hi Kim,
In order for us to further isolate your concern, may I know if these picture that you want to view is from the geocaching.com? Also, does the picture that you want to view is included in that particular geocache?

If so, yes, you may view if because once you have exported that particular geocache, the geocache will be also be exported in the GPS..

We will wait for your response.

Should you require further assistance about this or any other concerns with your Magellan unit please visit our website and review our extensive Self Help knowledgebase (www.magellangps.com).

Anyone figured out how to use the Picture Viewer?

How do you access the Magellan eXplorist GC picture viewer? How can you load pictures onto the Magellan eXplorist GC (to carry a satellite image, for example)?

Magellan’s web site (eXplorist GC feature list) says: “Picture Viewer - Whether the log has a pic of the last person to find or the hider attached a spoiler image to help locate a well hidden cache, a picture is worth a thousand words”

http://www.REI.com sales site says “Picture viewer lets you view downloaded photos such as the last person to find a cache or a spoiler image to help locate a well-hidden cache”

I can't find this mentioned anywhere in the manual.

You can see the picture files if you look at the GC from a Windows PC. If you're tracking to a geocach, then a "Pictures" option shows up in the Map function when you hit the menu key from Map view, but that does seem do anything but show one emoticon from the cache.

The cache's description file show a little icon where the pictures should be, but there isn't an obvious way to access that.
