    Anyone have the Magellan eXplorist 110?

    I am borrowing a mate's eXplorist for my hunt tomorrow as I can't find my gps but I can't seem to make it show the coordinates. Does anyone on here have one and wouldn't mind PMing me their number so I can call to try work it out? I is receiving signal and placing me on the map right were I am at my house, but for some reason it just says N/A in the coordinates field of the dashboard. Weird.

    Thanks
    Yeah nah bro

    I just had a quick look at the online manual Phillip, and it seems that you have to actually turn on the GPS receiver setting from the main menu once you have fired up the unit. May be worth checking

    I just tried and I can set a way point and have it tell me how far I am from it so that is a start. I will have to remember to put a way point on the hut lol. Pengy, the GPS is on
    Yeah nah bro

    I probably not much help have a 610 now & a 300 prior. They're very user friendly ,should tell you how far back to the road end when heading out .
