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.
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.
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.
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 I would be very nervous hiking with such an out of date map.
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.
Summary: One of the great things about the Magellan line of GPSes is the community support for these units and Magellan Outdoors is actively involved in these communities to assist their customers. One these site is [...].
Summary: Magellan must lack a stringent quality controll in their factories, because my GPS was dead on arrival the GPS would not leave the boot screen. I Spoke to the magellan tech support, and they offered to replace my defective unit, but they would only pay for shipping via fedex, and I do not have a...
Summary: Sometimes you want a device dedicated to a specific task. This GPS offers a great balance of tools and features to make it easy to use when geocaching, hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, biking, even as a passenger copilot tool when driving.
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!
