Welcome to the Magellan GPS 310
Congratulations on your purchase of the Magellan GPS 310 satellite navigator. The GPS 310 is an easy-to-use GPS receiver designed to get you out in the Great Outdoors rather than spending hours reading a Users Manual. There are, however, a few items that you need to be familiar with so it is suggested that you follow along at least through the chapter on Basic Operation. Before you begin, make sure that your package includes the items listed on the GPS 310 box. If any items are missing or damaged, contact your Magellan dealer or retailer.
GPS 310 Description
The GPS 310 is a self-contained hand-held GPS receiver designed for general purpose position locating and navigation. It has a built-in antenna located at the top of the receiver, a backlit display, and keypad. Using two AA batteries, inserted from the battery door found at the back of the receiver, the GPS 310 will operate for up to 20 hours.
Magellan GPS 310 Key Functions
G P S 310
The ENTER key confirms data entries or menu selections. The NAV key accesses the Position and Navigation screens.
The GOTO key is used to create a direct route to any landmark stored in memory. The MENU key is used to access the route, landmark and setup functions. The PWR key turns the receiver on and off.
The MARK key is used to create landmarks and store the current position.
The LIGHT key turns the light on and off.
The ARROW pad is used to enter landmark names, and scroll through the series of screens and menu selections.
Installing the Batteries
The GPS 310 uses two AA alkaline batteries that are installed at the back of the receiver. To remove the battery cover, turn the ring of the battery door screw counterclockwise until the battery cover can be removed. Insert the new batteries as shown, being sure to respect the polarities, and replace the battery cover.
Replace the screw and turn the ring clockwise until the battery door is held in place securely. While the battery door does provide the waterproofing seal to the batteries, you should avoid overtightening the battery door screw.
Getting Signals from Satellites
Since the GPS 310 receives information from satellites orbiting the earth, the antenna needs to have a relatively unobstructed view of the sky. Large obstructions such as buildings, cliffs, and overhangs may interfere with signal reception causing your GPS 310 to take additional time to compute your location.
The GPS 310 is designed to fit comfortably in your hand. Hold the receiver with the antenna towards the sky.
Initializing the Receiver - EZStart
Before using your GPS 310 for the first time, the receiver needs to know its approximate location. Using Magellans EZStart procedure, the GPS 310 will prompt you for the information it requires when you turn it on for the first time. You do not need to initialize your receiver each time you use it. Follow these steps to initialize the GPS 310 if this is the first time you are using it. Press
to turn the GPS 310 on.
SELECT REGION. Use the ARROW pad to change the flashing text to select the appropriate region for your present location. Press
SELECT COUNTRY or STATE. Use the ARROW pad to change the flashing text to select the country or state for your present location. Press
ENTER ELEVATION. Use the ARROW pad to enter the approximate elevation for your position. If unknown, leave the elevation at 0. Press
ENTER TIME. Use the ARROW pad to enter your present time. Press
ENTER DATE. Use the ARROW pad to enter the date. Press
The GPS 310 then displays the POSITION screen and automatically begins searching for satellites that it knows are in this area for the date and time you entered. The display shown here may differ from yours depending upon the information you selected in steps 2 and 3. As the GPS 310 scans the sky, the arrow in the circle will swing around pointing to a satellite and displays, in the center of the circle, that satellites elevation above the horizon.
Computing a Position
The GPS 310 will begin to acquire information from the satellites and use this information to compute your current position (called a position fix). Whether you have just
completed the initialization process or have just turned your GPS 310 on, the GPS 310 will display the following screens in the order shown. As the GPS 310 searches for satellites, some of the small circles around the large circle will become black indicating that the GPS 310 is tracking that satellite and receiving information. The number at the bottom right of the screen displays how many satellites are being tracked. After the GPS receiver has received positioning data from at least three satellites (approximately 2-3 minutes), it will begin computing a position fix based upon the information it is receiving. As soon as a position fix is computed, the receiver switches to the navigation screen displaying the moving compass. The word TRACKING is displayed in the lower right corner indicating that the receiver is computing position fixes. Note: If the receiver has not acquired a position fix in approximately 10 minutes, refer to the troubleshooting section of this manual. More information on these screens and the information they display can be found in the next chapter.
Saving a Position Fix
Position fixes can be saved in memory for use later when you want to return to that position. Saved position fixes are referred to as landmarks or LMK. To save (mark) your current position press Receiver-Generated Name: The GPS 310 prompts you to enter a name or accept the receiver-generated name for this landmark. To accept the receiver-generated name (LM01 - LM99), press
To quickly save a position fix, press

TANCE screen for the first landmark in the receivers memory is displayed with the bearing and distance from the last computed position fix to that landmark. To select a different landmark, use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows until the name of the landmark you wish to view is at the top of the screen. To view the POSITION screen of the selected landmark, press the UP ARROW.
Editing a Landmark
Following the instructions under Viewing a Landmark, use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to select the landmark you wish to edit. Press the UP ARROW until the screen displays PRESS ENT TO EDIT, then press
You can modify the landmark name and/or the coordinates for the landmark by using the UP/DOWN arrows to change the information and press
to move to the next line. If
the landmark you are editing is used in a route, the route will be modified to reflect the changes you made to the landmark.
Deleting a Landmark
Following the instructions under Viewing a Landmark, use the LEFT/RIGHT arrows to select the landmark you wish to delete. Press the UP ARROW until the screen displays PRESS ENT TO DELETE, then press
. Use the LEFT/RIGHT
ARROWs to confirm (YES or NO) and press
If the landmark is used in a route or is the destination landmark in a GOTO route, the GPS 310 alerts you that the landmark cannot be deleted. Remove the landmark from the route and repeat.
Working with Routes
The route function allows you to link a series of landmarks and travel, point by point, to a final destination.
The route depicted here is a three-leg route. Leg 1 extends from landmark A to landmark B, leg 2 from landmark B to landmark C, and leg 3 from C to D. The GPS 310 gives you information on the NAV screens that directs you to the destination of each leg sequentially.
Creating a Route
A route can contain up to 10 legs using any of the landmarks stored in memory. If there is a route already in memory you must delete the existing route before you can create a new one. Access the Route Menu by pressing
appears at the top of the screen. The display should say PRESS ENT TO CREATE. NOTE: If the display says PRESS ENT TO VIEW there is an existing route and you must delete the existing route before creating a new one. (See Deleting a Route for details.) Press
The receiver prompts you for a starting landmark for the route. The first landmark, *POS, is your present position. Use the ARROW pad to scroll through the list of landmarks. When the desired landmark is displayed (and flashing) press
The display changes to allow the selection of the landmark to be used as the end of the first leg in the route. Use the ARROW pad to scroll through the list of landmarks. When the desired landmark is displayed (and flashing) press
. Note that as you
scroll through the list of landmarks, the display updates showing you the bearing and distance from the start of this leg to the displayed landmark. If the distance from the start of the leg to the end of the leg is below 0.10 miles, the message INVALID is displayed and you are prompted to select a different landmark. The screen changes to the next leg in the route with the destination landmark of the previous leg inserted as the start of the next leg. The message END ROUTE is displayed in the TO field. You may continue this route by using the ARROW
pad to select a landmark as the destination for this leg or press
to signal the GPS 310 that this was the last leg in the
route and you are finished creating a route. Continue this process for each leg in the route remembering to press
with END ROUTE displayed in the TO
field to finish up the route. If you accidently pressed the ARROW pad but you meant to end the route, you can still end the route by continuing to press the ARROW pad until END ROUTE is displayed again. A route may contain no more than ten legs and the GPS 310 automatically saves the route and returns to the Route Menu as soon as Leg 10 is entered. After the route has been created, the GPS 310 automatically activates the route and begins providing navigation information for the route.

Connecting to External Devices
The GPS 310 is designed to interface to a PC or other devices using a data cable. The GPS 310 continuously outputs NMEA messages through the data port at a rate of every 1 second. The GSV message is output all the time including when the receiver is not computing fixes. After the first fix is computed, GSA, GLL, GGA and RMC messages are also output. These messages contain position, time, date, satellite position as well as other status information. These messages can be used by a variety of navigation software packages available for the personal computer. If the receiver is computing fixes and has a route set (either a GOTO or a multi-leg route) the RMB and APB messages are also output. The RMB and APB contain information (steering, distance to destination, etc.) used to navigate to the route destination. These messages are used by autopilots and marine navigation software. Connecting the GPS 310 to a Personal Computer (PC) Connect one end of the data cable to the back of the GPS 310 and connect the other end of the data cable (the end with the DB9 connector) to the serial port on the personal computer. Now any application that you run on your PC that accepts NMEA messages will be able to receive that information from your GPS 310. NOTE: Be sure that your PC software is set to the COM port that you connected your data cable to and that the baud rate is set to 4800 baud.
Connecting the GPS 310 to an Autopilot Device To connect the GPS 310 to an autopilot or other external device you may need to cut off the DB9 connector and hard wire the cable to the device. The cable configuration is as follows: Orange: Data Out Yellow: Data In Black: Ground Red: Power (DO NOT USE) Refer to the manual on the external device and connect the wires to their proper place. Be careful and double check your connections before applying power to the external device as an improper connection could damage the GPS 310 and void its warranty. Connecting the GPS 310 to a DGPS Receiver The GPS 310 is capable of receiving differential corrections from a differential receiver for improved accuracy. By connecting a differential beacon receiver (DBR), such as the Magellan DBR IV, to the GPS 310, corrections are automatically applied to the position and velocity computed by the receiver. If corrections are being applied to the GPS 310, DGPS will appear on the top of the position screen. The GPS 310 accepts standard RTCM v2.1 messages at 4800 baud rate. You can use either the Data Cable, Power/Data Cable or PC Cable with Cigarette Lighter to connect the GPS 310 to the DBR.
NMEA Data Messages
NMEA DATA MESSAGES. NMEA data is output at 4800 baud, 8, N, 1, checksum off. These settings are acceptable to most equipment and software applications. Your GPS receiver outputs the following NMEA 0183 version 2.1 messages.
GSA, GSV, GLL, GGA, RMB, RMC and APB. Vers. 2.1 NMEA is recommended for navigation data, satellite data and autopilots. NMEA Message Definitions APB Revised autopilot message contains all of the above plus: heading to steer toward destination, bearing from the present position to the destination (magnetic or true).

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the receiver adjust itself for daylight savings time? No. You need to reset the time for changes in your area. (See Changing Time Display and Time on page 28.) Will my receiver function correctly in the year 2000? Absolutely. Even though only the last two digits of the year are displayed, the full year designator is stored in memory.
Why wont the receiver accept the coordinates higher than 59 seconds when I am inputting coordinates? The most common cause of this is you are trying to enter coordinates that are in degrees/minutes while your receiver is set to degrees/minutes/seconds. Since the last two digits in degrees/minutes is in hundredths (00 - 99) and degrees/ minutes/seconds can be no higher than 59 (00 - 59), inputting a number higher than 59 while in deg/min/sec results in an error and the receiver does not accept the entry. Can I use NiCad Batteries in my GPS 310? Yes. However, the battery life of your GPS 310 will be diminished with the use of NiCad batteries. Can I attach my GPS 310 to external power? Yes. However, this requires the optional external power cable available from your dealer or Magellan Corporation. Will I lose all my landmarks when my batteries die? No. As long as you leave the batteries inside the GPS 310, memory will be retained for up to one month, even with dead batteries. (With good batteries installed, you can store your GPS 310 for six months without losing any memory.) When you remove batteries, you have 30 minutes to install new batteries before memory is lost. Why does my speed and elevation sometimes jump around? For security reasons, the U.S. Government introduces small errors (selective availability) which can affect positioning information. These errors are most noticeable while viewing speed, heading, and elevation.
T R A C K I N G Provides a visual indication of whether the receiver is locked or unlocked on satellite signals. While the tracking icon is displayed, the receiver is updating its position and can be used to save landmarks and as a navigation tool. If the tracking icon is not displayed, you may need to reposition the GPS receiver to get a better view of the sky. Battery Warning. When this icon first appears, the receiver will operate for about an additional hour before automatically turning off. The Magellan GPS 310 will retain its memory (route, landmarks, last fixes, etc.) for 30 minutes with the batteries removed. Memory will be retained even with low batteries for approximately one month if the unit is turned off. Light. Displayed when the LCD backlight has been turned on with the key. The backlight will cause the batteries to run down much quicker and should be turned off when not needed. E X T P O W E R External Power. Displayed when the GPS 310
Active Leg Bearing The segment of a route currently being used to compute navigational information. The compass direction from your position to a destination, measured to the nearest degree. A unique numeric or alphanumeric description of position. Refers to the theoretical mathematical model of the earths sea level surface. Map makers may use a different model from which to chart their maps, so position coordinates will differ from one datum to another. The datum for the map you are using can be found in the legend of the map. If you are unsure as to which datum to use, use WGS84. Distance above mean sea level. A single leg route with the present position being the start of the route and a defined landmark as the destination. (If the unit has been moved while turned off and has not yet acquired a new position fix, the start of the GOTO will be the position fix last recorded.) The compass direction in which the Magellan GPS 310 is moving.
A location saved in the units memory which is obtained by entering data, editing data, calculating data or saving a current position. Used to create routes. The angular distance north or south of the equator measured by lines encircling the earth parallel to the equator in degrees from 0 to 90. Coordinate system using latitude and longitude coordinates to define a position on the earth. A segment of a route that has a starting (FROM) landmark and a destination (TO) landmark. A route may consist of 1 or more legs. A route that is from landmark A to landmark B to landmark C to landmark D has three legs with the first being from landmark A to landmark B. The angular distance east or west of the prime meridian (Greenwich meridian) as measured by lines perpendicular to the parallels and converging at the poles from 0 to 180.
Magnetic North The direction toward the north magnetic pole from the observers position. Position Fix Position coordinates as computed by the Magellan GPS 310.
Time To Go (TTG) is the measurement of how long it will take you to arrive at your destination. TTG is based on how fast you are moving towards the destination and the distance remaining. The direction to the geographical North Pole from an observers position. The north direction on any geographical meridian. Universal Time, formerly referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) is the metric grid system used on most large and intermediate scale land topographic charts and maps. Cross Track Error (XTE) is the distance, left or right, of the desired courseline. The courseline is a straight line from your present position to your destination.

Initial Release B /1 /201 Initial release with basic functions
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.
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 purchasers personal use without the prior written permission of MiTAC Digital Corporation.
