Summary: The unit is a good unit it tells you what your location is, job done. Magellan does not maintain any product or service for this product even though I purchased it new under warranty.So new software does not support the notes section or download parameters of Geocaching. I purchased this to get a start in Geocaching, I'm sure it would be fun this GPS is not, Magellan is not.
Magellan eXplorist 500 GPS Receiver - not impressed
6 July 2007
Summary: Magellan eXplorist 500 GPS Receiver - not impressed. The software which I spent an extra $100 for detailed USA road maps is awful. The worst interface I've ever experienced. Takes longer time trying to put together directions to drive an hour away than it takes to actually get there. I've spent more time trying to work with the clunky software than to actually use the GPS! This might be great for hiking and such but don't buy it for the car.
