Summary: My husband keeps two of these in his dive gear and on his boat for locating previously-visited dive sites. He can be a bit technologically challenged; and he has no problems using this one. As one of his finally gave out, we were glad to find an exact replacement on Amazon with prompt two-day shipping.
Summary: This is one of the earlier GPS units made and a little more simple to operate. It was great for people that are not as tech savvy - like my retired father. He's used his for years (2004) and they don't make them anymore. He asked me to pick up some spares so he and his retired friends can use it for several more years. Excellent for saving your favorite fishing spot on a big lake!!!
Summary: I have used this worldwide on cruses. I pinpoint major cities to I can see how far they are from home, (as the crow flies). If you leave the ship and walk through town, it can track your travelling. If you get lost. Just walk in the direction toward the beginning, you can find your ship again. It is fun. Just remember to keep fresh batteries in it. If it goes dead, all your saved stuff disappears. Check the battery monitor once a month.
Summary: I purchased one of theese 5 years ago and loved that so I knew what I was getting in advance.Great simple GPS,Magellan should consider bringing it back just as your basic GPS. Garmin still makes a basic GPS.Magellan just left that market.
Summary: I have been using my explorist for about 3 years now, have dropped, lost it in a river and found it later, its beaten and scratched and keeps working. I have 3 other GPS units Garmin e-trek and DeLorian, and I like the Megellan the best. It is basic, not many roads or POIs but I use if for backpacking, climbing and cross country travel off road and it is dependable, and easy to use.
Summary: I Have been useing the magellan explorist 100 type hand held for years. its the best and easyest one to use. the best one on the market I believe. works great every time, with a nice features and a back light and nice screen. very simple to learn and get to use. I have no dislikes about this product and it beats the etrek by far.
Summary: Very base line model, but it will do the job. If I had it do over again I would have spent a little more money and bought something else. it is small and compact which doesn't take up room in your bag. backlight works well day or night.
Summary: Il est arrivé en bonne forme ce GPS Magellan explorist 100, heureux d'avoir pu l'acquérir alors qu'il se trouve épuisé en France. Pas de problème pour le transport translantique. Tout est OK. Utilisation simple, accroche rapidement les satellites, et me convient pour des goto sur mon ULM.
