  • Summary: I'm still testing this product. I'm not using the Geo caching at all, I used this gps to navigate while riding my mountain bike in the woods. So far so good.

  • Summary: Bought it to mount on my ATV. Screen is a nice size and controls are easy to use. My only complaint would be the price of the TOPO map, which I have to buy separately.

Good unit for the price.

  • 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.

Good. But consideration is not enough.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Unit shipped quickly and was exactly as advertised. A little complicated to learn to use it at first. I like the Marine feature giving the depth of water.

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.

Not for use in bright sunlight.

  • 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.

Excellent GPS, but a Little Quirky to Operate

  • 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 ...
