Magellan has announced a new hunting handheld, the Magellan eXplorist 350H, which appears to be based on the eXplorist 310. The 350H offers preloaded 1:100,000 scale topo maps with game management units (GMUs), GMU geofences, hunting specific waypoints (shown above), and comes with a one-year subscription to satellite imagery.
The GMU boundaries are for the contiguous 48 United States and Alaska. The 350H includes a redesigned interface to give access to hunting-specific features. Here’s a little more info from the news release:
Hunting-specific waypoints that can be used to mark animal tracks, rub marks, water and food sources while in the field are readily accessible on the Magellan eXplorist 350H and avoid the need to type names…When user-activated, the geofence feature of the Magellan eXplorist 350H will automatically alert the hunter when they are approaching any GMU boundary to ensure that the hunter stays within the area that they are permitted to hunt.
The eXplorist is “targeted” for late Q2 of 2013 availability at an MSRP of $229.99.
Previously, Magellan has released the eXplorist 310 and 510 Hunter Editions which include Kirsch TRAX hunting maps. These maps include Bureau of Land Management (BLM) info, U.S. Forest Service maps, Game and Fish maps, Wildlife Management Areas (WMA), PLOTS data, county roads, and topo maps for much of the western US (AZ, CO, ID, MN, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA and WY).
