Over the past 9 years I’ve had a number of outdoor GPSrs which I have and still use for off roading on dirt bikes, ATVs and my 4x4; as well being an avid Geocacher and an occasional hiker. During this time I have had GPSrs that I struggled with and others that I found to be a real joy, adding to the experience instead of being a piece of equipment that required more time and effort than the activity I was trying to take part in. Recently I acquire an eXplorist 110 to tryout as an additional unit to add to my collection for the purpose of having a light weight, low power consumption, easy to use unit that supports full paperless caching as well as handling tracks, routes and waypoints. I have found this little unit, which is the bottom of Magellan’s eXplorist line, to be a joy to use. It, like its bigger brothers the eX310, eX510, eX610 and eX710 is easy to use, extremely accurate and a tool that adds to the adventure of experiencing the great outdoors.
Positives for this unit – low cost, long battery life, light weight, highly accurate, paperless caching, user friendly and the list goes on. For anyone looking for a starter GPS, a low cost second unit or an extra GPS for the kids to use while caching (keeping your high end unit in your hands), this is an excellent unit.
Negatives for this unit – the only real negative that I noticed with this unit is that it is limited to 500 Geocaches.
