Magellan eXplorist 310 review

 

The Magellan eXplorist 310 is an entry-level handheld GPS and the newest member of the eXplorist family. The 310 is based on the same hardware platform as the popular eXplorist GC and like that model, includes paperless geocaching functionality. Unlike...

Paperless geocaching features with filters ; Backcountry navigator ; Excellent pre-loaded basemap of roads

Too many steps to reach some key screens ; No topo maps included ; Small screen ; Screen difficult to read in bright light ; Occasional lags in responsiveness

The Magellan eXplorist 310 is a capable entry level handheld, albeit one with paperless geocaching features. It has an excellent pre-loaded highway map, although I do see the lack of pre-loaded or widely available free topos as a downside.
