  • Summary: I have used this unit all over the world and finally the water proof caps are wearing out. Never a problem. It has been a great unit and I am sad to replace it but need waterproof.

Works well in the open but not in the woods.

  • Summary: I bought this item primarily for throwing in my hunting pack as an aid in navigation. I am a good woodsman but when trying to connect the dots in some of Idaho's rugged wilderness area's a gps is handy.

Good stuff.

  • Summary: This model is really good and has been around for years. Backlit screen and non-color screen but has basic maps pre-installed and pretty intuitive. I really like the compass that puts the waypoint destination as a mark that you can walk toward.

Great little GPS unit & easy to use!

  • Summary: I absolutely love my Magellan eXplorist 300! The display screen is made to use in daylight, however it has a built in light for dim lighting that works well. The navigation button allows you to easily switch views from the map to compass to coordinates to satellite connections.

Great, simple GPS receiver for the first-time user!

  • Summary: This receiver has been discontinued by Magellan, so you can only find it on ebay and other resale outlets. If you can find one, it's a good choice for hiking and geocaching for first-timers and those with limited resources.

magellan eXplorist 300

208*taylor, Ebay
9 May 2010
  • Summary: I Love it for backpacking, it works on 2 AAs, gives altitude, has a compass. Has a long battery life. I have never used a gps before and went out and used it. I was so impressed I bought a mount for my motorcycles (Even gives speed and heading)-appears to be almost indestructable.

explorist 300

alsfun1968, Ebay
31 January 2010
  • Summary: I wanted a gps to hike in the mountains and this explorist 300 is good for just that. it is good for major freeways but not side streets and i like the lad / long feature and the route tracking. the compass helps also but not totaly acurate. overall it was afordable and perfect for me.
