Oh Luuuceee, you got some 'splainin' to do.

  • Summary: Three hundred something dollars. This was my first GPS, so I wanted a good one. I thought it would be out-of-the-box great GPS-ing for my Scouts and me. I thought I could track my route from home to work. I thought I could at least get it to tell me how fast I was walking or driving. Nope.

  • Summary: Just getting familiarized with the 610. Basic operations were easy to figure out and use. Good for geocaching so far and after getting the topos down will test the back woods navigating.

  • Summary: Works well out of the box. The learning curve is short. Best price from Amazon than other dealers. Great product, worth the money, preloaded maps and topo.

Very Easy Menu Interface

  • Summary: Finally got the opportunity to take this unit out on a real hike. I have had this gps since August 2011. One of the things I paid particular attention to was battery life. A pair of alkaline batteries (generic brand) lasted about 10 hours.

  • Summary: The 610 being oval shaped does not fit well in the pocket. It fails to aquire a satalite location as quickly as the three other Magellan devices that I own. However the 610 is loaded with features and fits well in the hand.

Good GPS, not your primary outdoor camera.

Poiks, Amazon
15 October 2011
  • Summary: The eXplorist 610 was a pleasant surprise in the ways that matter to me: Quick satellite location, a good screen, and good durability. I had my doubts about a color touchscreen GPS after buying a competitor's product only to realize that the screen was too dim for use in certain circumstances.

Love using my 610

Suzanne Daniel, Amazon

  • Summary: Love using my 610.. Does everything well but most annoyed to find that when I checked to see if my drivers need to be updated and went through the process I find that I cannot get them unless I pay !!! I thought these drivers would be updated as needed.

amazing GPS but overkill and crap battery life

  • Summary: This is a great GPS to upgrade or 'change' from my Garmin 60csx. The map and screen is wonderful and the its fairly easy to pick up and use the basic features right out the box. I haven't tried to add voice recordings and pics to waypoints yet.
