So jacket pocket should work, pants pocket maybe, backpack, probably not unless it is in a top backpack compartment with nothing above it. Compare with similar items. Just not enough for on long day or multi day trips. Although screen clarity and battery life are good, the lack of detail on Magellan maps coupled with the poor tracking capabilities make this unit a poor choice. Customizable navigation screens show your location, speed, direction, and distance to destination and more, just the way you want it. Finally got the Canadian topo through The Source.

Jason – October 17th, Basemap is very lame, what even more lame is that you have to purchase maps and astronomical prices…. I kept getting error messages regarding the serial number so called customer service. Beach Camera Same Day Shipping.

They got me a computer expert who spent over 45 minutes with me to no avail. This website is using cookies. Or do you have to download them onto your unit with your computer? Roy – July 28th, where in the manual does it tell you to flip the cable over to be on file transfer mode?

I guess this is due to the resolution of the screen. Usualy about 3 or 4 minutes. It has been a waste of money for me and I will soon be replacing it with a Garmin.

A lot of major routes are missing, though I concede that it seems to know the interstates and U. Roy – July 28th, I have been using the Magellan eXplorist series for 3 years and have owned several different models. I have software loaded on 3 computers, but it is locked to one GPS serial number which is fine with me since I have only one unit.

I have just purchased a new megellan LE it comes with the option of using 3 aaa batteries vksta the Li Ion battery. If I use the LE for hiking, can I just put it in my pocket or backpack and have it log the route? Overall I would say that I really like the unit.

Mike – July 22nd, Your Review Have you used this?


This is our fourth Magellan, the second of the explorist series. The redular model will more make up for the minor price difference in batteries alone. I use it for hunting, camping and geocaching. Mapsend Lite software is out of the arc, and is extremely limited and cumbersome to use. Happy caching, Brandon Brandon – August 12th, This was helpful also.

One person found this helpful. Product usage is grossly inhibited because of map licensing roadblocks that Magellan sets up.

Write a customer review. Again, unless you get the Explorist for free or really cheap — I would not buy. What a piece of junk and never mind customer service! Speed of acquisition of both units are on par with each other.
