  • Summary: I mainly use this GPS for navigation and for what I will call "photocaching", for lack of a better term. I am a photographer and something I like to do is hike to remote areas, take a picture, then mark the waypoint on this GPS.

A cheap GPS with limited functionalities

H. W., Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: Without doing much research of my own, I bought this GPS following the recommendation of a GPS review website and immediately returned it. The only thing I like about this GPS is the price. The joystick is clumsy. The pre-loaded map does not meet my hiking needs.

extremely difficult to use

  • Summary: I have been very disappointed in this product. The keyboard is tiny...and my fingers are small! The instructions are basically nonexistent. It doesn't give anything but a straight line to a location, and I don't know about you but there are no hiking areas that are a straight line to anything.

Avoid At All Costs

  • Summary: Terrible product. The first problem is that my neighborhood was not on this map. I went thru the update procedures and it stated I had the most up to date map. I would be very nervous hiking with such an out of date map.

A great idea but difficult to use.

  • Summary: We have been Garmin users for the past 5 years. We purchased the Magellan because it had more features. I found it difficult to use. The instructions do not tell you how to get started. You have to go on line and download the full instructions manual.

Very good but "Waterproof" claim looks a bit sketchy to me, I'm not going to test it!

  • Summary: Very nice GPS for the money! I've been looking for a basic GPS for when I go out on long hikes, and this GPS is perfect for me. You can track your progress, and easily make corrections if you veer off course. Another bonus is the built in Geocaching feature.

Great for the beginner!

MikesMom, Amazon

  • Summary: We are using the Magellan eXplorist 110 Handheld GPS for geocaching and it has worked well for us. Granted, it is an entry level GPS, but it is easy to use and even my 13 year old had it working in a flash. We have not had difficulty in getting satelites and have found it to be pretty accurate!
