Safety
The Magellan eXplorist is a navigation aid designed to assist you in arriving at your selected
destination. When using the Magellan eXplorist, these safety rules must be followed to prevent
accidents that can result in injury or death to yourself or others:
IN THE INTERESTS OF SAFETY, DO NOT USE THIS NAVIGATION DEVICE WHILE
DRIVING A VEHICLE.
Please do not try to change any settings on the Magellan eXplorist while driving. Come to a
complete stop or ask a passenger make any changes. Taking your eyes off the road is dangerous
and can result in an accident in which you or others could be injured.
USE GOOD JUDGEMENT
This product is an excellent navigation aid, but does not replace the need for careful orienteering
and good judgement. Never rely solely on one device for navigating.
USE CARE
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the U.S. Government, which is solely
responsible for the accuracy and maintenance of the GPS network. The accuracy of position fixes
can be affected by the periodic adjustments to GPS satellites made by the U.S. government and
is subject to change in accordance with the Department of Defence civil GPS user policy and
the Federal Radionavigation Plan. Accuracy can also be affected by poor satellite geometry and
obstructions, like buildings and large trees.
USE PROPER ACCESSORIES
Use only Magellan cables and antennas; the use of non-Magellan cables and antennas may
severely degrade performance or damage the receiver, and will void the warranty.
No part of this guide may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic
or mechanical, including photocopying and recording, for any purpose other than the purchaser’s
