      Comments about Magellan eXplorist GC Geocaching Handheld GPS:

      I use this product geocaching, and often times it gives me a "wandering" end point, which makes no sense when I'm dealing with a specific geographic location, or it loses signal... which is very annoying. It's also pretty slow to pick up a signal.

        Comments about Magellan eXplorist GC Geocaching Handheld GPS:

        I use the eXplorist GC for goecaching only, but the base map is great. Almost every road is loaded onto this unit, making geocaching in the city a breeze. Auto-zoom feature is nice. Backlight is controlled by a timer of inactivity. Running the backlight will reduce battery life quite a bit. Toggle button is sometimes hard to use. If this is something that may frustrate you, you may want to look for a touch screen instead.

        Geocaching with Multi's or puzzles is a challenge since the software does not have support to add additional waypoints associated with a cache. The work-around is adding waypoints with obvious names. Downloading caches is a breeze. Just drop gpx files onto the device as if it were just another file system.

        Comments about Magellan eXplorist GC Geocaching Handheld GPS:

        Not very fast for showing location when walking but is quick for showing location when in a vehicle. Constantly loosing signal and then having to powerdown and than turning back on to get map tracking working. The paperless caching is great and downloading your information is easy.
