    GPS maps

    I just picked up a Magellan Explorist 500le and I was wondering if there was a website where I could download trail info for eastern PA mtb trails especially Jim Thorpe and St. Clair

    any info is appreciated

    If your magellan can import gpx tracks than yes it will work. Search for jim thorpe on motionbased. When you find an activity that you would like to part on your device you can export a gpx file to your computer (at the bottom of the summary data the is a line for different export options). use you magellan software then to import to you device.

    no I did not, this is my first GPS that has the ability to connect to a PC,my old one all data had to be manually entered and the manuals dont say anything about file compatability between brands
