Jazmine, Amazon

  • Summary: This has a horrible battery life & last minutes instead of the suggested 18 hrs. It is also difficult to download geocaches to it from webpages ( & not the simple drag & drop it advertised). Magellan offered a used one in exchange but that's pointless. It is a waste of $.

Frustrating experience thus far

Middle School Teacher "Myst", Amazon

  • Summary: First this did not work as indicated and I could not download cache info. I decided to try updating the GPS operating software and that did the trick. Now it is burning through batteries in less than a day as the auto shut-off feature doesn't seem to be working.

Had to return this

Kristen, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this item for the Wild Canyon Games which has a geocaching tournament in Oregon. When I took it to Nike to download the maps they said this is the one device that cannot download the maps because it is made for inner city geocaching.

Geocaching with this GPS is very frustrating ..

Alberto, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: This GPS does not take you to the cache! it is very slow to react and the compass does not direct you to the cache..it changes colors and it is hard to know where to go! I gave it 2 stars, since it does download the information very fast from the geocaching.com page and it has all the information...

  • Summary: This was not Walmart's problem. I should be able to down load geocaching info from the geocaching.com web site, and load it into the GPS. After 10 days of trying, I had to give up.

  • Summary: Bought this for my geocaching obsessed wife. She got better results with her smart phone app. Why have a stand alone gps if it can't do the job any better than the phone app?

Rolling the dice with this GPS

  • Summary: We bought this GPS for geocaching and were hoping for the best. Unfortunately the worse came true. We read the reviews and product seemed excellent and had all what we wanted for a reasonable price.

  • Summary: This is my first GPS device, so maybe my expectations were too high. For a device dedicated solely to geocaching, the Magellan Explorist GC has plenty of handy features, assuming you have a premium membership to the geocaching website so you can take advantage of them.
