Summary: I shopped for well over an hour online looking for a hand held GPS for when I go hunting that I can use to track my path back to camp/my truck and I didn't want to pay a fortune. Well this item, even at the $150 price tag was well worth it and worth even more at a third. It was in great shape and packaged well with the original software and litriture and ready to go. You couldn't ask for more...
Summary: The basics are all good, but at this point it's interface is dated and the usb cable is bizarre. But it does the job of getting me an exact set of coordinates for geocaching which why I purchased it. I would recommend it for that purpose. I use the iPhone4 for my exploring though. If you were going to buy a GPS receiver other than a smart phone I'd buy a more current Magellan.
Summary: Overall a good little handheld. Screen is easy to read in bright sun or low light conditions. Its very rugged, which is a necessity in my book. Fairly accurate for entry-level model, although I believe my cell phone is probably more accurate. Screen scratches easily. Oh and be very careful with upgrades. Lose your basemap and the thing is useless. Re-installing is a pain!
Magellan 210 GPSR QUITE POSSIBLY THE BEST GPSR FOR THE MONEY!!
8 June 2011
Summary: I bought the Magellan 210 GPSR for geocacheing and I have been throughly pleased with it! I have use it approximately 100 times sience I received it and with exception to the small display it is perfect for my needs! (geocacheing) I would strongly recommend the Magellan 210 to any one wanting a good reliable GPSR!
Summary: EXCELLENT! This GPS device has only internal memory.If you plan to store many trips or add base maps, you may wish to consider a unit that has removable storage media.

Summary: I like the easy to use navigation screens and its ability to keep a fix in the local woods. Easy to upgrade the firmware. With the new firmware from Magellan you get some new navigation screens. Only dislike if you use the Mapsend 3d software you have to safe the maps to the hard drive then convert to the GPS with the map converting software that comes with the GPS.
