Summary: This is what I needed to be able to input a card with the boundaries of the hunting club I'm in. All the other 80 members have this card. The area is divided into about 50 separate hunting areas and its important to keep out of the other hunter's way. I've been hunting this club for 6 years and finally got the 600 I needed all along.
Summary: i have owned the explorist 600 for over 5 years. I am a an avid hunter and walk alot. i use my gps for saving hunting spots -thats it and to get me back to a truck or atv. This unit works fantastic. keeps gps signal. has eltric compass which keeps me on track even if i walk in wrong direction two steps. WAAS technology so i am always on top of deer area and deer stand. THIS is a HUNTING GPS. Screen is great - i have worn the buttons out on it after 5 years though.
thanks to ebay I found and seller moved on another

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

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. But I bought this unit because it is the ONLY GPS on the market that gives all the roads in Australia and an Australia-wide topo map! All on a 500MB SD card.
Summary: So far I have found this product to be easy to use and extremely helpful. It's great that it has unlimited memory expansion thru its Secure Disk (SD) slot in back below the battery. The only down side I have found so far is that it is only loaded with the basic maps and if you want anything more extensive you need to pay for it. It would have been nice if Magellan had included some more extensive maps on a disk in the box.
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.
