Displaying seconds on the clock on Magellan eXplorist touch

Post by dimonster2 »

The internal clock on the top of the screen of Magellan eXplorist touch models (510, 610, 710) can display only hours and minutes, but not a seconds.
Displaing a seconds may be useful for ajustment of external cameras, i.e. for mapping purpose for OSM.

Here is an additional software for displaing a seconds. It is based on "SystemInformation" soft by von Daniel Schumann and "MortScript" script language by Mirko a.k.a Mort (http://www.sto-helit.de)

Hello there..

There is a new version of my program.

Ver. 5 alfa
- Program launching and termination is now organized using built-in Magellan shell. So, tricks with changing of system .exe-files, secret menu, MortScript scripts are not necessary now.
But you should manually edit a couple of system config files.
- Added support for non-touchscreen models (GC, 110, 310).

Please read installation instruction inside attached zip-archive. And be careful when editing Magellan shell config files!
