Excerpt: The amazing Magellan eXplorist 100 puts the power of GPS Navigation into your hands – or pocket and purse. The WASS-enabled receiver features a 1-second continuous update rate, and the eXplorist 100’s 18 hour battery life offers unparalleled longevity, for the ultimate GPS Navigation experience on the trail or on the road.
Excerpt: The Magellan eXplorist 100 GPS is basically the eXplorist 200 minus the base map. It shares the same lack of a PC interface. Unlike most GPS receivers, you cannot transfer waypoints, tracks and routes between it and your PC. All coordinates must be entered manually.
Conclusion: This review is a little shorter than most simply because this is a basic unit. But it is very reasonably priced, appears to be well built, and performs very well. As long as you know that it is limited in its functions there is no reason not to like this unit. It's a great choice for a first-time GPS receiver.
Pros: Not a lot of bells and whistles
Cons: Inexpensive, Good position accuracy, Easy to navigate the menus
