Just wondering if I have to go thru the work of preloading coordinates or can I find caches using this device wherever I am?

  • A. u have to preload them before you leave home. I've loaded all the ones in my area, and then when I am out, I can grab 'em.

  • A. That is the one thing that bugs me... loading them before hand. As far as I can tell that is how you have to do it. It would be GREAT if you could push a button and it give you all of them around you though.

  • A. You don't have to preload individual coordinates, but you do have to load this up with caches from your PC before you go out - no "live" data out in the field. How it works is kind of cool - you do queries on Geocaching.com for up to 1000 caches per query (I currently have 5 different queries with about 5000 caches total loaded on this GPS right now), either as a radius around a specific area (address, ZIP code, city, etc), or even "along a route" on a map (such as "within 5 miles on either side of the route from St Louis to Kansas City). You then download all of that information as a single file from the website to your GPS and boom, you are ready to go!

  • A. You will want to log onto geocache website and dump the geocache information onto the unit. It will hold thousands. It will take care of showing you the way. If you were out and had coords, this will allow you to follow lat and longs to get there.

  • A. It uses AA batteries and it lasts. We have had it since Thanksgiving and have used it about every weekend and I still have a full battery. I would always carry extra though... just in case.

  • A. So far, battery life has been good. We used "CHEAP" batteries and they didn't last a whole day. I blame the batteries for that one. "Good" batteries have lasted a couple of days.

  • A. According to Magellan if you use the energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries it lasts up to 7 hours longer than alkaline batteries....lol but I've been turning mine off and on for about 13 hours and it still is showing that the batteries are still around 100% if that helps any.

I just received it in the today, so far it is awesome, the only issue is that it doesn't keep the time very well. Lol. I have it set on the right time zone, but every time it refreshes (when I turn it on or off or unplug it from the computer) it changes by 4 or 5 hours. Anyways, it is easy to use and figure out I only had to read the directions once and I understood it perfectly. (Normally I have to read them like 4 or 5 times when it comes to electronics) It comes with batteries and a USB cable which surprised me to be honest. You also get a 30-day free trial of the Premium membership to geocaching.com. And it comes with the top 1000 geocaches in your area. I deleted them because most of them were on the neighboring islands. I will post more about the functions when I actually get to use it tomorrow! :) But so far I am really excited about this GPS and it was definitely worth the money and it is so adorable! It fits perfectly in my hand and seems pretty durable. I hope it really is because I drop everything! LOL!!! Lucky for me it comes with a one year warranty I believe. :) It is a geocachers dream!!! lol. So far anyways hopefully I don't end up taking back everything I put on here!

Bought this about 3 weeks ago for geocaching. Took a few outings to get used to. Wasn't sure I was going to keep it...now I love it! Works great and I love going paperless now!! Could easily be used for hiking too....it charts your path with a red line and would be easy to follow back if you were lost. You could set your waypoint and it would show you the way home! Came with lithium batteries and they lasted forever! Picture is very bright and love having the buttons all on the front. For the price, you can't beat what it does especially if you are a geocacher on a budget!

This is a nice basic GPS geared to go geocaching with. The screen is a little hard to see in bright outdoor light. The auto zoom is nice the closer you get to the geocache. The only real down side is the sat. signal is not real strong if you are around trees, and I'm not talking very heavy cover.

This Magellan was bought because it was specifically for geocaching. We love that it displays descriptions, logs, and hints. It has proved to be helpful and useful for its intended purpose.

The Explorist CG is well made and rugged. The display is very readable. For Geocaching, this is the bomb! That's it's main use here. It runs a good long time off of 2 AA batteries. Connection to the PC is simple with a USB cable which is included. Overall, I love this little GPS!

I bought this GPS after seeing the reviews and wanted something simpler to use specifically for geocaching at a good price. We had a PN-20 and had such a difficult time with it that I was hesitant to spend the money to get another GPS. So far we have been very happy. We like the paperless details for each cache on this GPS. Having the last 10 logs helps too. This is so much better than printing it off. It was easy to set up and easy to load the caches we wanted. My only gripe is what I saw with other reviews is that the screen is almost unreadable in sunlight. In the shade or in the woods it is easy and clear.

Overall we have been very impressed with this unit, and the ability to load it with detailed information for thousands of caches from Geocaching.com is exactly what we were looking for. Our primary GPS for caching is the iPhone4, but when we are "out in the boonies" with no cell/data signal, the iPhone is almost useless - this has proven to be a very capable backup, and we look forward to using it when traveling out of the country since we do not have (or want to pay for) an international data-roaming plan for our phones. Our only complaint has been noted by several others - the directional guidance works perfectly when you are walking, but it just starts turning randomly when you stand still. Takes some getting used to, and is the one feature we feel truly needs improvement.

I have had this GPS for a few weeks now and I love it. It is not a full blown GPS and doesn't have all the funtionality of one. But for what it does, Geocaching, it's perfect. It usually puts me within a few feet of GZ. However I have had a few instances where it has had a case of the spins, but it usually does last long. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

It takes some getting used to. It has many capabilities that a beginner would have to play around with to get used to. Holds all the info from the caching site that u like to refer back to in the field.Battery life is good. I use lithium ultimates, they last a good 18hrs per pair. When the memory gets full it will not load correctly, just dump the unit, using the pc and reload with caches u havent done. easy to read, great for setting caches. I would reccomend this to anyone enjoying geocaching.

This is my first GPS device, so maybe my expectations were too high. For a device dedicated solely to geocaching, the Magellan Explorist GC has plenty of handy features, assuming you have a premium membership to the geocaching website so you can take advantage of them. My only complaint is its lack of accuracy around or under even light leaf cover.
