Magellan Explorist GC FAQ: Realtime Tracking

-->

What is realtime tracking?

Realtime tracking is using an Explorist GC GPS to report your position frequently to a computer (typically a laptop in a car) to update its position on a map.

Can I use my Explorist GC with other software?

There is a feature in settings to 'enable NMEA' output, implying "yes" but as of this (pre-release) writing, I've not been able to make it work. Once the hardware is released and manuals and drivers ship, it should become clearer.
