Magellan Explorist 500 Acting Up
« on: November 06, 2016, 18:02:17 »

Thought I would ask here in case anyone has seen this problem before. There was a similar problem described in the Groundspeak forum but the solution doesn't apply. I have asked there as well, just in case.

For years I have been receiving my pocket queries and then splitting them up into files of 200 caches to load onto my receiver (which can only load 200 caches at a time). I use GSAK to transfer the files.

Last week preparing for a readtrip I downloaded a file with just 17 caches, no children, and when I tried to select the file I got the error "Some Geocache data can't be read due to size limitation". I now find I get that for any file I download.

As far as I can remember I have not changed anything on my computer since I last successfully loaded a file in August.

I have tried re-installing GSAK and the GPSR drivers, as well as resetting the receiver to the factory state. No luck.

Anyone seen this before and have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.
