Great cheap, easy to use little unit.

  • Summary: This is my second one. Sure there are better ones out there, but for the price it fits the bill for me and does everything I need it for. I use it mainly for hiking, biking and kayaking. It lets me know how to get back, but also how fast/far I'm going.I actually LIKE that it's not rechargable. When I'm out in the middle of no where,it's nice to just chuck a fresh pair of batteries in it, and go.

Worth the money

  • Summary: I feel like I got a good buy. The unit is an outdated model which I knew before I bid on it, but it was cheap enough to get me started in geocacheing. I've had it in the field and it performs good. The seller in my opinion represented his product accurately. I would buy from him again.

  • Summary: Easy to use,not alot of bells and whistles.Fast acquisition and I like that it can be used in the vehicle or in the woods.Good battery life.The only con is that the unit can't be upgraded.Try and find an eXplorist 210 if you want to upgrade with new maps.If you're looking for a basic GPS unit,this is a nice start.

  • Summary: This is a great little gps for the average person.It doesn't have a bunch of frills,but not everyone needs a barometer on a gps.I purchased this unit to help me find the edges of my property.It performed flawlessly.You can enter your lattatude and longetude you want to go to,push a button,and presto,it tells you where to go to get to that point.The compass works great as long as you are moving.I have no problem at all suggesting you look into this gps if you are looking...

Magellan eXplorist for Geocaching

saraw2261, Ebay
15 July 2009
  • Summary: This GPS system is great for Geocaching. Young explorers can hold and work the controls with ease. It does not have the capacity to download way points directly from the internet, but they are easy enough to name and put in manually. I like that it will store a bunch of way points (geocaches) and then we just leave it in the car and if we want to do some we just turn it on and go. You can add notes to your way points too.

Magellan explorist 200 gps receiver

mrsteve8250, Ebay
16 June 2009
  • Summary: For the money, this was a great buy. The AA size batteries last a long time and rechargeable batteries work great in it. It is small and lightweight and water resistant. It is great for using in rainy weather or snow skiing. The bright yellow case helps keep it from being lost. It is easy to use and has a nice back light with 2 level settings. It lacks a usb port for downloads and does not have a way to enter locations by coordinates.

Magellan eXplorist 200 Handheld GPS Receiver

fma3325, Ebay
3 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for geocaching, and it works great! Only a few dislikes; it takes a little getting used to putting in the longitude and lattitude, but after a few times you get used to it, and sometimes it takes a minute or two to find the sattelites. But that might just be where I turn it on at. It is great for setting caches too, just save the location in your points of interest. I recomend this one to anyone geocaching.

  • Summary: I bought the Magellan eXplorist 200 Handheld GPS Receiver new off e bay for $40. its a very good gps for the price. I use it for geocaching and it works great! the only downfall is the fact that you cant connect to your computer. so you have to punch in coordenance by hand. Its great for beginners. For the price you cant get any better!

  • Summary: We made the purchase of a Magellan Explorist 200 for a Door Prize at Our Annual Geocaching Event. We Made our choice by price and saw that many Cachers were using Magellans. We were very excited when the Door Prize was won by a younger Geocacher, age 11. The Magellan Explorist 200 is a Great GPS for beginers.
