A nice unit for what it is

SkyMatters, Amazon
13 February 2008
  • Summary: I own both the Explorist 600 and Garmin 60CSX. It would be great if I could combine the two. Although both Magellan and Garmin have newer, more expensive models out, the new units have their own problems so I have not been tempted to upgrade.

Great GPS

Daniel R. Koneck, Amazon
25 March 2007
  • Summary: This is one of the best GPS's I have ever used. I had a problem with the electronic compass at first. Amazon gladly returned and gave me another one. This one is great for every need I come across. I have no complaints.

I think I made the right choice

Apex shopper, Amazon
22 December 2006
  • Summary: I gave my son a Garmin 60C for Christmas last year. Tinkered with it for a couple of days before handing it over. It worked well. Of course I wanted one for myself, but cash is cash, so I've been putting it off.

After sales service

Neville Prosser "nap", Amazon
9 November 2006
  • Summary: Although I am happy with the product, I have send several emails to Magellan seeking assistance, but none have been replied too. This may be because I am from Australia, which if that is a problem I should not deal with overseas companies like Amazon. Regards Neville Prosser

reduced from 5 to 2 stars but Amazon will not allow me to edit

Denis J. EVANS, Amazon
7 September 2006
  • Summary: I have had no (emphasis NO) software or hardware problems with my unit. I have owned 4 GPS's over the years. I like the user interface on my Garmin eTrex Vista better. But this unit gets faster fixes and works better under trees. It's a 14 channel rather than 12 channel receiver.

where is the documentation

Outdoor Bob, Amazon
6 June 2006
  • Summary: Hi, I just got the 600 and my first question was how do you charge the battery. I had to search the web because Magellans web site was not at all helpful.

Why did I change my mind?

James J Wolfe, Amazon
6 June 2006
  • Summary: I was all set to by a Garmin and let myself be talked into buying this. Short and sweet XP Pro doesn't recognize the driver even if you say it's ok. Installs it but, won't use it. That means the GPS will not communicate with the computer.
