Magellan eXplorist Review | OutdoorGearLab
Leveraging the best of both systems, the eXplorist combines the simplicity of a touch screen with the reliability of two customizable 50 buttons. It is the only other device tested with a camera, and a better one at that. I use this for geocacaching.
The Magellan eXplorist comes with all the bells and whistles. I did appreciate the built-in camera, but my smartphone has GPS, so I was usually willing to tradeoff accuracy for image quality. The explotist is however fairly easy to use and the touch screen is good. This is the only GPS unit that features a 3. You can easily assign a new location for each new adventure.
It is not a basemap that shows only major roads and features. The size is good. This Magellan is finally on par with any of the best receivers offered by Garmin, and in some cases it’s better.

We liked the quick access buttons to use the 3. As far as the GPS goes it seems to take some time to acquire a signal, but after that it did the job well.
Create waypoints, record tracks, and route from point to point. I have truly enjoyed my Magellan eXplorist That said, we did like how a video, voice recording, or picture could be used as a way point to better document adventures.

Review: Magellan eXplorist hiking GPS –
As opposed to having a full touchscreen keyboard, Magellan splits the keyboard in explprist, forcing you to toggle between two screens.
Will use them every time with pleasure. WP in the map screen is too small. By Sal Cangeloso Units these days aren’t as slow as they used to be. This map also includes marine elements, urban and rural, and a realistic shaded relief background. That said, you can program shortcuts to get you where you need 150 go quickly.
The camera sometimes makes pics look foggy and I am not sure why, but is very good to be able to take a pic at the same time as record the location. Enjoy the on-board camera, video, and voice recorder among other features. The only other feature I would like to see on the is an electronic compass. GPS performance is good. It is holding up nicely being attached to my mountain bike mostly when we go riding, has been rained on already, and dropped and it’s tough as nails.
The eXplorist GC was very basic, but with the they were able to put out a device that has a reasonable feature set and that is very approachable. They carry a good range of stock so you can actually check out options side by side. Enjoy no paper maps geocaching with the eXplorist Customer Reviews Robert Brennan.
