Michael, July 12, 2008 It is good quality, but it has a fatal flaw: you cannot input coordinates directly into the machine. I'm still attempting to work out the controls and how to use it, but it seems ok.
Charles from Alberta, Canada, May 8, 2008 Magellan eXplorist XL is a good piece of hardware. But, it's poor in map and software update. This company is out to suck money out of the user of their machines. They don't tell you the maps (topo or street) are not up-to-day and no update is forth coming. They hope you are naive to buy their new model again. I can tell you I won't! I will find a brand that will provide updates for their gps machine (old or new).
Jim, January 2, 2007 This is my first GPS unit. I love it. It has a great battery life, is easy to use and input information. The actual mapping software purchased separately takes time to learn. But once the map is in the unit, you can easily find your way around. As for the base map...you will need to buy a topo map or a streets map. You really cant to much without either one of those. They are very detailed however and should meet your needs. I love this device and dont leave home without it.
Dave, December 31, 1969 I've had my XL for over a week now and I am very happy with it. Extremely easy to learn and use. Excelant battery life. Great map detail with Direct Route.You can clearly read all text on display including street names. Very solid perfomer.Highly recommend.
