SporTrak Series of GPS Mapping Receivers
This manual covers both the SporTrak Map and the SporTrak Pro GPS receivers. All of the functions described in this manual apply to both receivers. The SporTrak Map has a 2MB basemap with an additional 4MB for data downloaded from MapSend products. The SporTrak Pro has a 9MB basemap and 23MB for data downloaded from MapSend products.
FOR SAFETY REASONS, THE DRIVER SHOULD NOT USE THIS DEVICE IN A VEHICLE WHILE IN MOTION TO ASSIST THE DRIVER TO NAVIGATE. Please do not try and change any settings on the SporTrak while driving. Come to a complete stop or have your 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 GPS. 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 Defense civil GPS user policy and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. Accuracy can also be affected by poor satellite geometry. 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.

Returning to Last Viewed NAV Screen Pressing the NAV button returns the SporTrak to the last NAV Screen viewed. (Note: if the NAV button is pressed from a screen where data is being input, the data will not be saved.)
The Map screen is the very heart of the SporTrak. The Map screen has two modes: Position and Cursor. In the Position Mode, the map is centered around your present position with an arrow cursor indicating your position and points in the direction you are heading. Two customizable data fields are presented at the bottom of the display. If you require to see more of the map you can also turn off these data fields. Information as to how to customize this screen follows this brief description of the Map screen.
Present Position Icon Track History
Map Scale Indicator Data Fields Present Position Icon The Present Position Icon graphically displays your position on the map. While you are moving it will point in the direction you are heading. If the SporTrak is not computing positions, this icon is replaced with an hourglass icon. Map Scale Indicator Provides the scale for the map. The number displayed represents approximately 1/4 of the screens width. Scale can be changed with the IN and OUT buttons. Track History Dotted line on the map displays the history of where you have travelled since the last time you cleared the Track History (see Clear Memory in the Reference Chapter.) Data Fields These fields display navigational information for viewing on the Map screen. They are both customizable with 13 data types possible. Both of the data fields can be turned on or off allowing more viewable map area. Both features (customize and turning the data on/off) can be accessed from the MENU button.
From the MAP Screen Highlight Hide Map Info or Show Map Info
When Map Info is hidden and the map is in the cursor mode, the bearing (BRG) and distance (DIS) to the cursor is shown in the bottom left corner of the map replacing the scale. (Note: if you have uploaded topographic information from Magellans MapSend Topo for the United States CD-ROM, the elevation at the cursors location is displayed, not the bearing and distance.) If the cursor happens to be on a map object, the name of the object is displayed.
Selecting the Data Fields This function allows you to select which data fields are to be displayed. You can choose from Customize Fields, Street Information or, if topographic information is loaded, you can select Horizontal Profile or Terrain Projection. If you select either Horizontal Profile or Terrain Projection and you do not have topographic information loaded a warning screen is displayed.
From the MAP Screen Highlight Customize Use U/D arrows to select desired information
Two Data Fields Description This option displays two boxes at the bottom of the map that can display data that you choose. Displaying these data fields is the default for the SporTrak. Changing the Data Fields Allows you to change the data that is being displayed to 1 of 13 different data options (bearing, distance, speed, heading, VMG, CTS, ETA, ETE, XTE, turn, elevation, time, or date). Note: If you have selected Hide Map Info, this option will not be available in the menu. Also, you must have the Two Data Fields displayed on the Map screen to be able to customize them. Press [ESC] when you are done to leave the customize mode.
From the MAP Screen Highlight Customize Use U/D arrows to highlight Customize Fields
Use L/R arrows to highlight the title for the data field to be changed
Use arrows to select new data type
Street Information Description This mode just displays the name of the street close to your present position. Horizontal Profile Description This mode displays at the bottom of the Map screen a graphical representation of the horizon at a fixed distance from your present position. This fixed distance is equal to the map scale you have selected for the Map screen, so as you zoom in or out, the horizon displayed will change. In the Horizon Profile mode, you will also notice a line projected out from your present position icon to a shorter perpendicular line. The intersection of the two lines indicates the location on the map where the horizon is being computed. (This
function requires that map data has been uploaded from Magellan MapSend Topo for the United States and that your present position as well as the projected horizon falls within the area uploaded.) You should note that when you select Horizontal Profile, your Map Orientation will change to Track Up so you may need to change that when you are done viewing the horizontal profile. If you change Orientation to something other then Track Up while viewing the Horizontal Profile, the default Two Data Fields is displayed. Changing the Orientation back to Track Up will revert back to the Horizontal Profile. Also, you must be zoomed in to a scale of 0.80 miles or closer for the horizontal profile to be displayed. Zoom scales higher then 0.80 miles will cause the data displayed to change to the Two Data Fields and will change back to Horizontal Profile as you zoom in to 0.80 miles and below. Terrain Projection Description This feature allows you to view the terrain directly ahead of you graphically. It is computed from your present position and extends in a straight line to the top of your display. This provides you with instantaneous information on what terrain elevations are directly in front of you. Your present position and elevation are indicated at the left side of the display. The maximum elevation for the terrain ahead of you is displayed above the graph, next to the map scale indicator. (This function requires that map data has been uploaded from Magellan MapSend Topo for the United States and that your present position as well as the projected horizon falls within the area uploaded.) Like Horizontal Profile, you must be zoomed in to a scale of 0.80 miles or closer for the projected terrain to be displayed. Zoom scales higher then 0.80 miles will cause the data displayed to change to the Two Data Fields and will change back to Terrain Projection as you zoom in to 0.80 miles and below. You should note that when you select Terrain Projection your Map Orientation will change to Track Up so you may need to change that when you are done viewing the projected terrain. If you change Orientation to something other then Track Up while viewing the

All of the Alarm options are set in the same way. The instructions below apply to all of the Alarm settings. When the beeper is turned on for alarms (see Setup - Turning the Beeper On/Off ) an audible beep will be sounded for the alarm. A visual alert is displayed for the alarm whether the beeper is turned on or off.
Navigation Screens Why does my compass not point in the right direction? The SporTrak computes direction by comparing your present position to the last position taken, it requires that you be moving to compute your compass heading. Furthermore, to eliminate error, you must be moving at a minimum of 0.5 mph. Routes What is a backtrack route? A backtrack route allows you to retrace your steps. As you are moving, the SporTrak automatically creates and stores hidden waypoints into memory. These waypoints are the ones that the SporTrak will use to retrace your steps. When you create a backtrack route, the SporTrak converts these hidden waypoints into User Waypoints. How do I know which route is active? Access the route menu by pressing the MENU button and select the option Routes. The route menu lists all of the routes in memory with the active route displayed in bold characters. Alarms Why does my SporTrak not make an audible beep when I have an alarm active? Check your setup settings for the Beeper. If the selection is Off or Keys Only, the beeper will not sound for alarms. Output Data What is NMEA? NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) is the standard used for interfacing marine electronic devices. This standard has also been adapted for use in a variety of third-party mapping software programs.
What are the NMEA message strings? The SporTrak supports version 1.5 and 2.1 of the NMEA 0183 standard. Additional information on NMEA can be found at on the internet at www.nmea.org, where you can purchase the NMEA Interface Standards. Another excellent source for NMEA standards is a FAQ sheet that is published on the internet by Peter Bennett at vancouver-webpages.com/peter/nmeafaq.txt. My GPS is not communicating with my computer. What can I do? Check your baud rate and check the baud rate that your software is using. If they dont match, change either the softwares or the SporTraks baud rate (See Setup - Changing the Baud Rate.) Can I interface my SporTrak with a Macintosh computer? Magellan does not supply cabling or software for the Macintosh line of computers. For information on a cable or software that may meet your requirements, visit GPSy at www.gpsy.com on the internet.
Receiver will not turn on: 1. 2. 1. 2. 3. 4. Check to see if batteries are installed correctly. Replace with two new AA alkaline batteries. If there are any obstacles nearby or overhead, move to a new location. Make sure that the antenna is pointing up, has a clear view of the sky and is a reasonable distance away from your body. Check Satellite Status screen to see where the satellites are and if the receiver is acquiring data. If the receiver still does not get a position fix within 10 minutes, you may wish to repeat the initialization procedure. This is commonly is caused by excessive static electicity. Turn the receiver back on and it should operate normally. Move the receiver to a new location to avoid a similar occurrence. Battery life seems shorter than it should be: 1. 2. Make sure that you are using two AA alkaline batteries. Shorter life span of the batteries can be due to excessive use of the backlight. Turn the backlight off when not needed. Make sure that your receiver is set up to use the same datum as your map. The map datum is generally shown in the map legend. See Setup Changing the Map Datum under Reference for instructions on selecting the map datum in your receiver. Check your LAT/LON format. Make sure that the format selected in COORDINATE SYSTEM (DEG/MIN/SEC or DEG/MIN.MM) is in the same format as the map you are using. It could be caused by distance shifts to the map. Use map data for reference and do not rely completely on it. Data was not saved or was corrupted. This can be caused because you removed the batteries or removed external power with the SporTrak turned on.

72 Magellan SporTrak GPS Receiver
Your Magellan GPS receiver has been upgraded to include the latest WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) technology. With WAAS your GPS receiver can compute position locations with an accuracy never before possible in a commercial receiver. What is WAAS? WAAS is a means of improving the accuracy of GPS beyond the standard civilian signal. WAAS was developed by the FAA to provide the accuracy needed for aircraft to perform approaches for landings. WAAS improves the accuracy of GPS by calculating the errors in the GPS signal at several monitoring stations around the country and then transmitting the error corrections to special WAAS satellites. In turn, these satellites broadcast the error corrections to WAAS-capable GPS receivers around the world. WAAS is a free service and, with the small exception of two additional satellites displayed on the Satellite Status screen, it will be transparent to you. There is nothing you need do, its all ready to go. How accurate will my GPS receiver be with WAAS? The FAA reports that expected accuracy can be improved to around 7 meters vertically and horizontally. Our own testing suggests that Magellan GPS receivers will typically experience accuracy improvements to around 3 meters. You can expect to see this level of accuracy for 95% of the time that you are receiving WAAS signals. What are some of the problems with WAAS? The signal coverage with WAAS is not global like GPS satellites. In some locations, receiving WAAS signals can be difficult and intermittent. There are two satellites transmitting WAAS for corrections in the Americas and two more over Africa and India providing similar coverage for Europe. These satellites are geostationary, i.e., they stay in the same spot over the Earth equator. The two satellites for the Americas are over the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Chances are then, they will probably be near the horizon from where you are using your GPS receiver. This increases the chance that buildings, foliage, terrain and other obstacles could block the WAAS signal. Also WAAS is a relatively new system and is still in its developmental stage. So on occasion you may experience service outages. Even during these outages, your GPS receiver will still be working, computing position fixes and helping you get to where you want to go using the GPS signals. The only difference is you will not be getting the precision that WAAS was providing. You can expect to see these outages diminish as the system matures and stabilizes. For more information on WAAS, you can visit the FAA websites section on their WAAS system: http://gps.faa.gov/programs/WAAS/waas.htm

What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an entertaining outdoor adventure game for GPS users of all ages. The basic idea is to set up caches (hidden prizes) all over the world and share the locations (Latitude / Longitude) of these caches on the internet.
GPS users can then use the coordinates to find the caches. Once found, the visitor may take something from the cache, leave something, and/or sign the logbook. The find is then logged onto the Internet website where statistics about found and hidden caches are maintained.
How Did It Get Started?
On May 1, 2000, the GPS signal degradation called Select Availability (SA) was removed. The change allowed GPS units owned by civilians to now be accurate to within as close as 6 feet. On May 3rd, a container of goodies was hidden by someone outside of Portland, Oregon.
Three days later, the cache was visited twice, and logged in the logbook once. Mike Teague was the first to find the container he built his personal web page to document these containers. Two months later, in July, Jeremy Irish (owner of the current Geocaching website) found Mike Teague's website.
Recognizing the potential of the game, Jeremy approached Mike with a new site design and the name Geocaching. The official torch was passed to Jeremy on September 6th. Since the launch of the web site, Geocaching has grown to include caches in all 50 states and in over 200 countries.
