Magellan eXplorist 110 Handheld GPS Unit
I've had this GPS for 3 years now and it has never failed me once. Fast to pick up on the satellites and very easy to use. I go out hunting a lot and this GPS has saved me many times from getting lost. When I get out to the field and especially places I've not been to yet, I would just enter my point onto the GPS and venture out into the wilderness. Not once has it gotten me lost. On my last trip, a buddy of mine was telling me we parked the car over this hill facing west while the GPS pointed east. I won't lie, I also thought it was towards west but we followed the GPS and it brought us right back to my car. It's always steered me right and when I come back to hunt, I'm always at the same spot because I save the locations into the GPS unit. I'd also left it in my jacket and washed it without checking my pockets and I thought I had ruined the GPS. Took off the battery covered and noticed these plastic rings around the unit so I figured it may be waterproof. Put the cover back on and it powered on as if it was never in the wash so I am very impressed with this unit. It's quick, small/light, very accurate and built like a tank! I would highly recommend anyone who's on a budget. I don't see any reasons why you would want to invest 300 or more in a gps for hunting/fishing. This one does it all at a fraction of the price. And one more thing, it's still running off it's original batteries after 3 years!

My Lowrance H20 died, so I picked this up as a quick replacement. The screen is much smaller, but the unit works great. Picks up more satilites and stays locked on much better the the Lowrance did. I use it just to mark fishing spots, and it does just fine!

Works even better than expected. A little more complicated than the Magellan I upgraded from that is seven years older. Impressive graphics.More features than I will ever use.Was easy to download latest software.Will be on every hike and hunting trip.
Negative side need my reading glasses to read screen. Didn't come with USB cable.

The manual explaining operation is very poorly written.
I've had to call Magellan 7-8 times to learn about the operation as I wanted to use it. Most reps were helpful but a few were very obstinate. The female reps were very patient & helpful.
