Good basic hand held GPS for a budget

ky4qth, Ebay

  • 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.

Just what I wanted

charlesmoore03, Ebay
5 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this item because I already own an eXplorist 100 and have used it for almost 10 years without a failure and know the features and menus. The 100 & 210 units use 2 AA batteries which allows me to rotate rechargable AA - no special batteries. Also the eXplorist has a base map for major roads in USA which helps orient me on overcast days. However, the real reason I bought it was the Geocaching features.

Nice GPS, but don’t get too excited

4ef9a99d3badea824113d44bfdc28cbb3383985, Ebay
5 May 2008
  • Summary: I’ve owned or own a Magellan 300 (10 years old) and eXplorist 100, Garmin V and a TomTom wide screen. I wanted the eXplorist 210 for hiking. Operates much like the 100, accept has a base map and allows you to download GPS data into your computer. I chose this unit because it still has a grayscale display screen, so it uses less power over color, lasting up to 18 hour on 2 AA batteries. I’m pleased with the eXplorist 210 and it’s operation.

Good basic GPS, not great

TGC Michigan, Amazon
30 October 2007
  • Summary: I bought the Explorist 210 for a recent hiking/birding expedition in Belize. I practiced using the unit at home for a few weeks before the trip and used it continuously on the trip. A few comments on the device: Pros: 1) The GPS receiver and accuracy is very good. It works almost everywhere except inside buildings and under dense forest canopy. It worked on foot, in car, on boats, and it kind of worked on a small plane traveling from Belize City to Ambergris Caye.

Good Value PC Compatible GPS, Scratchable Display Plastic

Robert Holder, Amazon
30 October 2007
  • Summary: I have not had this device long, but we did spend a day geocaching with it. It performs very well. I chose this model because I wanted a GPS unit that I could access with my PC through USB and this seems to work very well. Included is a small application that will convert .loc waypoint location files to the .gs files that this unit uses.

Easy to use device but a bit quirky

netzotic "Tech Head", Amazon
30 October 2007
  • Summary: After a few hours of research, I chose the eXplorist 210 as my GPS unit of choice for geocaching. I have only played around with a GPS unit once, so don't really have a lot of experience with other models. The 210 was chosen for it's PC capability and 22MB of space for background maps. Non-PC capable GPSs don't sell for much less, but you've got to plunk down a lot more money for a unit like the 410 that has an SD card interface.
