Magellan have revealed the eXplorist 310 handheld GPS device. An entry-level model, Magellan are hoping to make the pursuits of hiking, climbing, backpacking, geocaching, hunting, fishing, mountain biking and sailing a little easier, and little cheaper to enjoy too.
With a GPS accuracy of 3-5 metres, the 2.2inch touchscreen device lets you check 1,000 Waypoints, 10,000 Geocaches, 50 Track Logs and 10,000 Track Points.
It’s also sturdy too, with IPX-7 waterproof certification, and the ability to withstand temperature ranges between 14° to 140° F or 10° to 60° C.
The eXplorist 310 also comes pre-loaded with World Edition maps, offering a complete road network for the U.S., Canada, Western Europe and Australia.
Other fun features include a hunting and fishing calendar, helping you plan out the best times for your trips, as well as Sun and Moon information, making sure you aren’t stuck on a cliffside as the sun begins to set.
18 hours of battery life from two AA batteries should be enough for even the most adventurous of days out.
