MapSend Lite FAQ
(frequently asked questions)

How do I open a map in MapSend Lite ?
If you have previous CD based Magellan mapping products (such as DiscoverAus Streets and Tracks or Great Desert Tracks) these will be automatically loaded into MapSend Lite  when installed. Then go into (at top of window) GPS Contents - Map Manager and in Detailed Maps, select the map you wish to view.

If you have an SD card based mapping product (such as DiscoverAus Topo) then connect your eXplorist GPS and ensure it is in File Transfer - SD Card. Go into GPS Contents - Map Manager and select Add Map (top left button). A file explorer window will then appear. Your eXplorist will be a Removable Disk so select it, then select the Detailed Maps folder and the map that you wish to open. MapSend Lite will then copy it over to the PC for viewing. You only need to add each map once as MapSend Lite will retain it. You can also place your SD card into a card reader and do the same. An SD card reader is faster loading maps.

I'm getting the message "Map initialization is required". What is the problem?
Make sure the write protect slide switch on the side of the SD card is in the unlock position. Most of the DiscoverAus Topo cards are shipped with the slide switch in the lock position.

How do I download my POI (Waypoints) from my eXplorist ?

How do I download my Tracklog from my eXplorist ?
