Well there you go!
New firmware updates for explorist 400, 500, 600, and XL.

Firmware updates link (http://www.magellangps.com/en/support/software.asp)

Apparently the Expl600 has a thermometer calibration screen ??
(can't confirm, but read it in a yahoo group!)


edit: The expl 500 and 600 must share the same firmware?? The expl600 link takes you to the 500 firmware! Should be OK
and the 400 firmware version has gone from the 2.01 to 2.02! The bugs in the earlier update may have been sorted?

this gets me one step closer towards getting an XL :D
(still thinking 'bout it!)
