Summary: I was not willing to pay more for a product I was not too familiar with. I am having fun and learning a lot about these type of devices and sharing the information with friends. I even hope to put it too good use, exploring around in tropical rain forest is serious business, since people get hopelessly lost by just wondering off a short distance. These type of gadgets can save lives.
Summary: I absolutely love my eXplorist for many reasons, but besides tracking faster then my outgoing Vista etc., a few other things stand out. First, the screen on the eXplorist is crystal clear and extremely bright - much brighter then comparable Garmin GPS such as the expensive 60CSx. I can't read any of the Garmin GPS in bright day light without having to hide it in the shade (my biggest complain), but the eXplorist? No problem at all.
Summary: Excellent GPS unit, quick satellite reception and quick accurate easy too read display. Offers barometer, altimiter, thermometer, color display, upgradable memory, the most versitle GPS I have used.
Summary: Envio super rapido, vendedor serio y responsable, producto excelente, vivo en Costa Rica y compre el gps por este medio, el paquete me llego a la puerta de mi casa en 28 días exactos, hay que tomar en cuenta que primero debio llegar a mi direccion en Miami y luego a Costa Rica Centro America
Great GPS, Color screen is great, Mapsend 3D is a MUST

Summary: Hey Folks, I purchased a explorist 400 for myself the same day my wife purchased the 600 for me as a gift. I was playing with the 400 on the way home and I liked it. Then I dug into the 600. The color screen is fantastic. This is the first color screen I've had on a GPS so I'm quite impressed on how it makes using the GPS a bit easier. My wife also got me a 1gig SD card for the unit, and I have the detail map loaded for Colorado from MapSend 3D (the CD version).
