Magellan eXplorist 200

DSH, Amazon
9 May 2007
  • Summary: I use my hand-held GPS units mainly for geocaching, hiking and hunting. I don't download any data into my GPS units, so I prefer more "basic" models. I started with a basic yellow Garmin eTrex, and it worked fine, except for losing satellite signals indoors, under heavy tree cover, and sometimes in...

Rotten instructions, product works fine.

  • Summary: My mom gave me an eXplorist 200 GPS receiver for Christmas. I had a great deal of difficulty getting started with it because the instructions that came with it were so sketchy. Magellan's online instructions were of no help (their little program eventually told me, "Guess I haven't been able to help...

  • Summary: This GPS has gotten me out of the woods more than once in the dark. By setting waypoints on the unit 4 of us were able to get back down off North Dome in Yosemite in the dark and find our way back to the car.

Basic but Good GPS

  • Summary: This GPS device is good for the use which I purchased it for. The included maps are limited but sufficient for my needs. Since I use this with topographical maps with reference points printed on it, I don't use the internal maps.

  • Summary: this is my first GPS, its working very well for me, u can trace the way your walking then inverse it to find your way back, you can convert the trace into routes, it has the usa map, but the map wont work in mexico, it will only give you the main roads of the country. good stuff

  • Summary: I've tried several GPS receivers, mostly loaned from friends, and settled for this one for various reasons. The main activity was going to be GEOCACHING with my children, and was planning to give it to them for use.

Good for driving and backpacking.

  • Summary: I love this little critter. I find the built in map for driving handles most major roads and all of the interstates. On my latest 14 hour trip to several relatives, I was on a marked road 98% of the time.

Great Starter GPS

LionsFan, Amazon
9 May 2007
  • Summary: I just started Geocaching a few months ago and after doing research on available GPSs in my price range, I decided to choose this one. It is a great starter unit that does not have so many functions that the directions on usage overwhelm you (we all know about VCR programming!

An excellent entry-level GPS device

Paul, Amazon
9 May 2007
  • Summary: I had been searching for a decent pedometer (for fitness walking) for a while and decided to give a GPS unit a try. I must say that I am impressed with the Magellan eXplorist in that it can tell me how many miles I have travelled as opposed to just counting steps; and being able to give me an...
