  • Conclusion: The Magellan eXplorist 710 is large, fully featured all-purpose GPS with some excellent features such as a large touchscreen, two programmable buttons, and a quick One Touch menu. But, unfortunately, it has several drawbacks like large raised edges around the screen, sluggish map draws, and a bulky body that severely impact its performance for backcountry navigation. Our tests that show that many other GPS devices perform better and cost a similar amount or less.

  • Summary: The eXplorist 710 is a rugged GPS device, coming in a rounded, heavy, solid case, with the screen deeply recessed in the body for extra protection. Magellan claims it’s waterproof enough to survive rain and occasional puddle immersion, but it also offers turn-by-turn navigation for those who want to leave it attached to a warm, dry car dashboard.

  • Summary: Not so much a sat nav – although it can do that – but a tool to guide you around the countryside for what I am told is a new craze Geo Tagging. People hide clues and you then go on a search for the next and so on using this tool.

  • Conclusion: Fazit: Der Magellan eXplorist 710 ist etwas schwer, aber auch sehr komfortabel ausgestattet und besitzt einen überzeugend guten Bildschirm. Wenn das Routing über die noch zu prüfende Topo-Karte gut funktioniert und weitere Karten übertragbar sind, ist auch er für Fahrradtouren sehr empfehlenswert. Auch die einfacheren Ausführungen 510 und 610 bieten schon eine sehr gute Ausstattung.
