Magellan EXplorist 600 Hiking GPS Navigator

Light, and compact, the Magellan eXplorist 600 GPS is the perfect companion for your weekend hike. But this 2.2 x 4.7 x 1.3 inches Magellan is not just compact in size but is a full featured GPS device as well. The eXplorist 600 has enough memory for a lot of topographical maps and the GPS mapping can be expanded using a high-speed USB data port and through secure digital (SD) card storage.  By default the map of the eXplorist 600 does not provide detailed information except major highways and cities. Magellan provides downloadable topographical maps for the entire U.S. But you need to purchase the MapSend program that contains the topographical maps separately. The maps themselves feature locations of points-of-interests such as popular campgrounds and trails for your use during hiking and camping trips.The eXplorist 600 was made to fit ergonomically in the hand. However, the compactness it offers may not work well with other people that have bigger hands than normal. The size is really up to you to consider but at only 5.4 oz (164.4 g) with batteries, this GPS is one of the lightest and smallest in the market.The screen is small, which is to be expected in a GPS this size. It does, however, seem to provide adequate color and brightness than those in previous series. But aside from the upgrade on the screen quality, the overall design of the eXplorist 600 does not deviate much from the rest of the eXplorist series. In other words, it pretty much looks the same as its predecessors.Nonetheless, having a waterproof and shock resistant design, the eXplorist 600 is quite useful in the wilderness where it could unexpectedly start raining anytime. Finding a decent shade or shelter from the rain before you take your heading is quite annoying. The device is sealed per IPX-7 specifications. Dipping the device in pool of water will not make it malfunction.Another useful thing in the wild is the fact that Magellan claims that you can get a total of 17 hours of life from the batteries, that is if the back light is turned off. With back light on, however, the company claims you can squeeze up to 8 hours of use from the battery. That could be sufficient for your use but don't take things to chance. It is still ideal that you carry an extra battery pack during your hiking trip, remember, you're in the wild and the next charging station can be miles aways.There are some other features that the GPS has to offer. Some of the more interesting ones include a Hunt/Fish menu were it shows you when is the best time hunt and fish at a particular location. The Sun/Moon menu, meanwhile, shows the Sunrise, Sunset, Moonrise, Moonset and Moon Phase for a particular location. The usability and importance of these features will really depend on your present needs.At a price range of $300 to $520, the eXplorist 600 is not half bad. However, you could settle with the eXplorist 500 instead if you find the new Magellan too expensive and if you find that you really don't need the extra features. Read More

The Global Positioning System and Digital-Mapping Technology have enabled people to navigate in different places with much ease and control. These complex technologies are packed in a single unit called a portable navigation system, which is now available in different models from different companies at different price ranges. Since it has become an essential tech tool, and the variety of models in the market, it is hard to decide what to buy without having to return it to the store. has released its list of the Top 5 GPS receivers used by car drivers to help you in picking up a device that suits your needs and budget. Garmin Nuvi 660 - A solid-performing and versatile GPS device that features navigation basics, text-to-speech capabilities, integrated Bluetooth connection, FM transmission, MP3-quality audio among others. All of these are put together in a big-screen, small-sized casing. Its Travel Kit feature is also an interest for the world traveler. However, its hefty price tag is not worth the basic navigation it provides, especially if you want to avoid certain roads. Price ranges from $300 to $700. HP iPaq rx5900 Travel Companion - A GPS and PDA all in one, this device runs on both Tomtom Navigation software that delivers voice-guided and text-based directions as well as maps that can be viewed on both 2D and 3D; and Windows Mobile 5 that enables the user to access Microsoft Word and Powerpoint among other features. It also has Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities, as well as an extended memory slot for more music and videos. However, as a GPS it is slow acquiring an initial satellite fix as well as a below-par battery life. Magellan Maestro 4250 - This GPS is one of the earlier devices that feature a voice command function, which at the time was cool as it is today. But what's really impressive about this is its accurate directions, along with integrated Bluetooth, and traffic capabilities. However, its points-of-interest database is a little outdated, and its voice control does not have an address entry. Price ranges between $325 to $500.  Mio C520 Navigation Receiver - At $400, this good-value, sleek-designed GPS device contains decent features such as advanced turn-by-turn navigation, a 4.3-inch screen, Bluetooth, text-to-screen, and multimedia capabilities. However, the routing can be a bit off, and the screen tends to fade when struck by sunlight. Tomtom GO 720 - Some of its features stand out among the competition such as the one-touch location finder that helps pinpoint where you are and where is the nearest police station or hospital, and the Map Share community tool that lets you customize your maps and share it with other Tomtom users. It also has a safety feature that lets you automatically call emergency at the touch of the screen. However, its Bluetooth connectivity is only compatible to a few selection of mobile phones. Price ranges between $368 to $505. Read More
