Summary: I've own this device for about 2 years. Great for Geocaching but not for trekking or hiking. Most sites have way points to download for the Garmin but not for Magellan products. The maps on my iphone was easier to use.
Summary: I purchased this to use for biological field work--I have to navigate to areas in the desert, keep track of my route, and send that information back to my employer. I was swayed by the inclusion of video and photo directly on the unit, believing that would add value to the data I collect, and save...
Poor customer service Poor software READ THIS BEFORE BUYING THIS UNIT.

Summary: I got this for a trip we are going on, after looking for hours on the internet comparing different unit it was down to this unit or the Garmin Oregon 650T. I ordered this unit upon arrival it turned on ok but could not read the screen in the sun.
Summary: The gps is decent from a function and use standpoint, but the compete and total lack of battery life warrants two stars. The first two times I used the unit battery life seemed okay. Since then I get 2 or 3 hours on alkalines.
Summary: Bei der Bewertung des Magellan Explorist 610 schlagen zwei Seelen in meiner Brust. Einerseits ein toll designtes Gerät, in das ich mich sofort verliebt habe. Auch die Verarbeitung ist erstklassig, es liegt ausgezeichnet in der Hand. Die Satelliten waren fix gefunden und wurden stabil gehalten.
