Decent gps with shockingly bad battery life

MM, Amazon

  • 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. And you cannot leave batteries in the gps when you turn in off (totatally off, not suspend) because the batteries will be completely dead when you go to turn it back on.

  • 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. I and my son-in-law used GPS devices in the Army and we could not figure it out completely or reproducibly. The Magellan comes with minimal instructions and is super hard to figure out. I'm selling mine and buying a Garmin.

Disappointing More Than Decent

Craig, Amazon

  • 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 me the trouble of going back to geotag and sort pictures. For use in the backcountry I rate the unit 3.5/5. Battery life is a joke.

Für Cacher fast unbrauchbar

  • 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. Die Genauigkeit schien ebenfalls sehr gut sein.
