Once a leader in all things GPS, Magellan has slowed down in recent years. Over the past year their focus has been on the PND market and an App for the iPhone. Now they are looking to target the outdoor enthusiasts gearing up for summer and geocaching.
Magellan's eXplorist series including the GC version are rugged, waterproof and compact. All of these features are ideal for geocachers, who can sometimes get caught in wet weather or rough terrain. Boasting a sunlight-readable color screen, and up to 18 hours of battery life off of 2 AA batteries, these handhelds are sure to be a hit for those who do a full day of geocaching.
The ever growing game of geocaching recently celebrated it's 10th anniversary as well as it's 1,000,000th cache!
The Magellan eXplorist GC comes preloaded with 10,000 of the top geocaches worldwide, and offers paperless caching, a tool that saves the hints with the coordinates.
This GPS is a great choice for beginners and children, offering full geocaching ability and all of the common GPS functions.
