Summary: It's a good unit, small display, but I knew that going in. Good value for the money. It has a lot of features, but I wish figuring our what everything does was easier. Once you have used it 3-5 times for each feature it does get easier.
Summary: Good point: 1. GPS performance is better than Triton. 2. Duration of the active suspend mode 30 hours! (eneloop use) (My Rating. GPS performance of the Normal mode and Active suspend mode is the same. Good.) Bad point: 1. Arrow in the map screen is too big! ("Map, WP, Track" is invisible) 2.
I like the eXplorist, though I had a problem with this unit

Summary: So I ordered the GPS and was excited to use it. I downloaded the latest software following the instructions and it crashed the unit. I couldn't get it to work at all ... it would boot with an error. Emailed with Magellan tech support and they had me ship the old unit it so they can replace it.
Summary: I use this for geocacaching. Sometimes it gets you dead on and most times within 20 feet or so.Took just a few min to learn how to use. I like the touch screen, easyer to use than the joy stick ones.
Summary: Technically, the unit works great. It works very good under heavy tree cover. I only gave it 4 stars because the display is almost unuseable in outside light. I have to turn the brightness all the way up to see it, even on cloudy days.
Summary: I'm fairly new to geocaching, but that was the specific application for which I purchased the eXplorist 510. I guess that I shouldn't have been surprised that compared with an iPhone, this is highly accurate.
Summary: Review: Magellan Explorist 510 Handheld GPS I'll open with the general list of Magellan eXplorist 510 touted features, then touch on how well it works, why the hiker or hunter would want this unit, or not. The primary features follow. ***Preloaded World Edition maps ...
