Magellan eXplorist 500

16 April 2005
  • Conclusion: The Magellan eXplorist 500 has quite a few features - some are useful (such as the file system) and some are marginally useful (such as the geocaching feature). Performance was good. Ease of use was average. For someone with GPS usage experience, the file system is nice but the lack of customizable navigation screens would be frustrating. The first time buyer needs to weigh which features she or he wants in a GPS to justify this mid-to-somewhat-high priced device.
  • Pros: Unit needs to be held a certain way in some sunlight conditions, Limited number of navigation screens, Does not come with a wrist strap
  • Cons: High-resolution color display, Good position accuracy, PC-type file system

  • Excerpt: Il produttore Magellan ha da poco annunciato il lancio in Europa del suo nuovo Magellan Explorist 500 Le , dotato di una gestione dei file simile a quella di un computer e di una memoria espandibile all’infinito. Si tratta di un dispositivo utilizzabile sia su terra che in acqua, grazie alla sua struttura impermeabile.
