Nice device, if it worked.

TC USCG, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Good price, nice features Cons: Good features do not do you any good if it won't talk to the birds above. The nice folks at Magellan are sending me a replacement because mine does everything but get fixes from the satellites. Once I get the replacement, I'll do another review.

Sub-standard Unit

Raymond E Koliander, Amazon

  • Summary: I recieved the first one after it would not load I cantacted Magellan after serveral tries they said it was defective. Got a second one from Amazon. I was unable to turn it on so again I sent it back. I have several stationary GPS's and they have always worked fine. They are not Magellan.

Not for people on the East Coast

Joseph Montemarano, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought this for my brother, who is an avid fisherman. Have to admit that I didn't do nearly enough research about the HotSpot Fishing package. Trusted the few reviews posted about the actual bundle here on Amazon, which of course are not here in the NE.

Intially difficult to use, then impossible

Norcodragontamer, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: It worked for 1 week in California. Then I took it to Italy where it promptly lost the satellite signal. Still couldn't track when I returned to California. No amount of right arrow, on/off, leave in a field on a cloudless, moonless night resetting helped. Magellan customer support was no help.

not a new Meridian

Charles B. Warren, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: My old Meridian bit the dust. No complaints it did just what I wanted on my boat for years. It gave me one screen with position (lat/lon), course and speed on one page. The explorist does none of that, as far as I can tell, on any page. Too bad.

Extremely poor durability!

Bob, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: "Joystick" button broke after owning for less than a year. After several attempts to get Magellan to repair it even at my cost, they have still refused to repair this item. The lack of durability of an item this expensive is ridiculous. I did not even put it through heavy use.

Buy something else.

Michael Landry, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: Terrible little device. Takes forever to power on and lock on. The menu system is infuriatingly bad. And the CPU is too slow, so when you press any button, it takes up to 5 seconds before anything changes on the screen, so you're always waiting for the device to catch up to your commands.
