Nice solid unit for the money, small screen is shortfall.

  • Summary: Review wouldn't let me rate anything other than excellent on "display" so I left that one blank. This is a nice solid little unit but the display is too small for any real detail and at times the toggle can be a bit difficult to operate. It does have a lot of nice features and is fairly quick to initialize(find satellites). I'd recommend the touch screen 510 if you can afford it, but all in all, this one isn't bad for the money.

I'm sure it's a good unit just not suitable for my needs and Region

  • Summary: I'm sure this is a good unit for any areas where you can get map upgrades for it, but, if you live in Atlantic Canada - Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or PEI then I would not recommend this unit. There are no map upgrades for this unit in these provinces and it only comes loaded with streets and nothing else.

  • Summary: We love Geocaching and I am an avid hunter therefore it serves us well all around. It's a little tough to use for some larger hands but gets the job done.

Tracking and Geocaching

Aileen Baker, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the Magellan for Geocaching. It's easy enough to use once I figured out how to download geocaches. I also tested out the tracking feature to track my hikes. The miles tracked are not accurate, in fact it overstates the miles walked/hiked. My usual route of 5 miles (miles measure by car & phone GPS) is 6.7 on the Magellan. Not sure why.

Best Geocaching tool for the money

K. Ward, Amazon
6 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this so my son and I could Geocache and it does it admirably. Here is what I found - Really solid so I think it will bear some beating as my fumbling three year old can attest to. Able to download searches from Geocache websites so you can add 100's of caches quickly. You can look at sites on a map or a list, depending on what works best for you. Any information about caches that you can access online can also be accessed on this device also.

  • Summary: I wanted this Magellan GPS for Father's Day. When my wife went to Wal Mart, they didn't carry this model and said it had to be ordered online. The clerk suggested what he called "the Garmin version" of the exact same Magellan GPS and they had one in stock. She bought it, but it wasn't want I wanted and not the same at all. We returned the Garmin, and she ordered the Magellan that I originally wanted. I'm happy with it, and I would recommend it.

Good Enough

jaimie, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • Summary: I got this to replace using my phone while caching (because the app eats up both your data and battery). I liked that it came preloaded with caches and had some international maps. I especially liked the international part because I planned on going to Italy this summer and the international charges to cache using my phone would have been crazy (not to mention, yet again, battery and data issues). It def.

  • Summary: Reliable unit for handheld outdoors, not to hard to learn once you get the manual from Magellan, have had a hard time downloading fishing hot spots bundle, accurate on the water, lots of tools to mark spots, tool also will show local lakes nearby,. Its perfect for hiking small compact, able to change settings on back light and display to preserve batteries on long trips. Graphics are good, great screen resolution.

Good geocaching GPS unit.

Benjamin, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for Geocaching with the kids. For the money it's a good buy. It's ready to go really quick. It was easy to sync with Geocaching.com for uploads of caches. It gives all the info you need to find the cache.
