  • Excerpt: I have had this GPS unit for about a year now and I still don't really know how to use it. The background maps are great for when you are traveling but they aren't much use when you are out in the wilderness. I think the GPS is very durable.

Don't get this GPS... get the Garmin Etrex Legend

J. Drake, Amazon
16 July 2006
  • Summary: I recently got this item for basic geocaching and navigation, and was appalled when I took it onto the field. When compared to 3 other Garmin GPS units (two of them legends), it gave completely different co-ordinates (longitude and latitude) and when we actually found the geocache, my explorist said...

17 February 2006
  • Summary: It works swell and it is easy to use. To improve it should have features of ATA (aproximate time of arrival)and introduction of coordinates to new point of interest.

Magellan Explorist 300

M. Michelle Goodwater, Amazon
17 February 2006
  • Summary: If doing this again, I would spend more for a unit with a cable that can be accessed by a PC, for loading and changing points of interest. I have also had some problems with the unit dumping the coordinates that were loaded, and am still trying to trend when that happens.

magellan explorist 300

P. Lanik, Amazon
17 February 2006
  • Summary: I just drove up from Fresno to Sacramento and found the 300 only has major highways and absolutely no street mapping whatsover. If you are looking for a basic navigational device to get you back to the highway when you are just running around town, it will do, but to get out to the back country and...

Magellan GPS - Buyer Beware

C. Maillie, Amazon
17 February 2006
  • Summary: Megellans "customer service" is by far the worst we have experienced. Based on our experience, it appears that Magellan's customer service tactic is to put the customer on hold for long periods hoping that they will hang up, always making the customer call back, never agreeing to follow up with a...

Get me Back

James K. Poage, Amazon
17 February 2006
  • Summary: This little guy does great at getting me back to where I started in my boat. The instruction manual isn't great but I figured out how to use it and I am not a computer genius. Great for what I bought it for.

Good Basic GPS

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 February 2006
  • Summary: Fast pick-up of location and readily tracks even in moderately heavy cover. Even use in my vehicle and no problems. Only comp;aints are the temp. screen seems slow to respond to temp. changes and the map which is basic is not current to roads and doesn't track exactly to the route.
