Navionics Compatable

  • Summary: Good product. I bought it because it is compatible with navionics map. Good detail. The only issue I have is that you must download the complete owners manuals

Magellan eXplorisit 710

Eric Shuler, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: First of all it uses two AA batteries which according to the manufacture last 16 hours. I would caution that is estimate and if you are venturing out in the woods make sure you start with fresh batteries and a couple of spares batteries.

Complicated

Timpster "Artistick", Amazon

  • Summary: Compared to apps on my cell phone this device is very complicated. It does, however; work in remote places where my cell phone becomes worthless. The screen is small but it is easier to read in direct sun compared to a cell phone.

Very good but not perfect!

  • Summary: The interface is a little complicated and there are some minor quirks with the firmware that Magellan could fix but haven't as of yet, but the worst shortcoming to me is the poor visibility in bright sunlight.

Best GPS I've owned

Amazon
4 May 2012
  • Summary: I currently own 6 GPS's. I bought my first one in 1998 and have watched as technology has gotten better through the years and this is definitely the pinnacle of GPS technology thus far. From 1998 until recently, I've used my GPS as I've hiked and hunted all over the midAtlantic region of the USA.

  • Summary: Listen, i am a complete beginner when it came to this type of gps. I am a little tech savy but not a computer programmer. I thought that this was very easy to figure out and im sure once i get to play with it more i will be able to explore allnthe fun features.

Almost perfect, almost

JMEBD, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Like the title says....almost.... If it had a LED light on the back (would be very handy), and if the video that it records would be a bit better quality. It's a bit choppy so you have to move it slowly while panning or you'll get blurring and choppy video.
