  • Summary: Geocaching is a lot of fun and a fairly cheap hobby at the same time, which leads it to becoming very addictive. The option to pull up the website http://www.geocaching.com and enter in the address where you are or going to and pull up local geocaches is really handy to kill off some time and could be a lot of fun as a group or family activity. Geocache enabled GPS units are becoming more readily available to the market.

GPS Tracklog
29 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Magellan eXplorist GC is a new introduction designed to do one thing well – geocache! It has a 2.2” color (non-touch) screen, 18 hour (rated) battery life and a highly detailed  worldwide basemap. And while it isn’t designed for backcountry navigation, it can accommodate 500 waypoints and a 5,000 point tracklog. Really though, the eXplorist GC is a one-trick pony aimed at geocachers, with a low and sure to be discounted MSRP of $199.99.

  • Excerpt: De laatste jaren is het wat stil geweest rond de gps’en van Magellan, maar dankzij een nieuw pr-bureau en met Technolyt als leverancier zijn de Amerikanen weer alive & kicking.
