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.
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.
Summary: I was concerned about the negative reviews but bought the eXplorist 600 anyway. Great product, glad I didn't pay attention to the reviews. Works exactly as advertised. Onyl issue I had was downloading Mapsend Topo to the SD card. You have to read the instructions.
Summary: (Again submitted on behalf of my husband, the gift recipient) - "the first time downloading maps is troublesome and difficult, but after the stress,...comes the use of a great GPS. Color display is crystal clear. Great for geocaching."
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.
Summary: I've had the eX600 for about 3 weeks and have found it to be an outstanding unit. Getting great satellite locks, no boomerang effect, very accurate. Display is excellent as is battery life. Screen navigation is intuitive. Don't refer to the weather feature too often so can't fully comment.
Summary: Adquirí un explorist 600 tras haber pasado por mis manos un explorist 400 con el cual estaba muy satisfecho. Las ventajas adicionales visibles a simple vista del 600 (pantalla en color y brujula, termometro y barometro) quizas no justifiquen la diferencia de precio; lo que no se ve pero se nota es...
