UPDATE: The Magellan eXplorist line has been officially discontinued. For an overview of our current recommendations, check out our handheld GPS buyers guide.
The Magellan eXplorist 210 GPS is a low cost handheld that can do double-duty as an auto navigation system (with the added purchase of Magellan DirectRoute software). This attractive combination makes the 210 one of the most popular Magellan handhelds.
The 210 comes with a cable to transfer maps, waypoints and other data to and from a PC, a capability the eXplorist 200 lacks. The 210 is very similar to the eXplorist 400, except that the 210 has 22MB of built-in memory, whereas the 400 utilizes an SD card for memory.
