Great basic GPS Receiver

laughing_ed, Ebay
7 June 2012
  • 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.

Good for geocaching.

  • 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.

Software

  • Summary: I recently bought this unit and sort of expected to be able to use the MapSend Topo software (v 4.20) that I already had installed on my computer to load maps. Unfortunately the older versions of MapSend will not work with the Explorist 210.

Ok but I think Garmin's better

  • Summary: I had bought my father a Garmin eTrex entry level GPS and wanted one for myself. I tried the eXplorist to compare them and see which one was better. Even though the differences are slim, I think if I had to buy a new one now, I'd go for Garmin's GPS.

Not sure...

  • Summary: I purchased my 210 for use in both geocaching and for work. The first one I received had a dead screen. The second one just went down with a broken on/off switch. Either I am very unlucky or the quality of the unit leaves much to be desired.

  • Excerpt: I love this thing, but I have to share that Magellan's software is not very well developed. It mostly refuses to open on my pc and it's not easy to use at all (when it rarely does open). The maps aren't accurate for roads.

Solid Hardware with Very Dated Basemap

Raymond Lei, Amazon
20 October 2006
  • Summary: I purchased the GPS two weeks ago, but very cautious of Magellan's map software from reading reviews. Conerns are mostly over the map's accuracy and currency. Yesterday, driving from west suburb Philadelphia to JFK airport and back, dark in the night and rain.

  • Excerpt: Good value for the money and fun to play with. Base map is useless in Canada and contains serious errors. Some highways are numbered incorrectly. Would like to see a unit with a large screen and a preloaded 1Gig SD card full of maps for an all inclusive price.

Not the GPS I want

X. Luo "cool dawg", Amazon

  • Summary: It does not have the automatic routing function. You have to set the route manually or spend some money to buy softwares to do that offline. If you are off the predefined route by mistake, you have to figure out how to get back to the route by yourself.
