Summary: If you are looking for a GPS navigation product primarily for outdoors use, but want to be able to use it for other activities, such as car navigation and cycling as well, the Magellan eXplorist 500 is a fine choice. It is not suitable for watersports without additional protection from water.
Excerpt: This GPS unit from Magellan is very user-friendly, with a decent-sized screen and clear colour display. Simple â€œMark and Findâ€� buttons make basic functions easy, although buttons are very small and close together. Downloading routes from a PC is trickier than on some other units.
