Magellan has announced eXplorist 310 and 510 Topo Editions (the latter is pictured above), which will come bundled with a one-year subscription to National Geographic TOPO, offering 1:24,000 and 1:100,000 scale USGS-based topos. According to the news release, you will also be able to “view a unique collection of road and trail data that shows a complete network of back roads and trails on a national scale.” read more
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 the GC though, the 310 also offers the features of a backcountry GPS, including the ability to load and navigate tracks and routes.
UPDATE: See my hands on Magellan eXplorist 310 review.
The Magellan eXplorist 310 has been announced ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show, bringing an entry-level model to the new eXplorist handheld GPS line. The 310 utilizes the same hardware as the eXplorist GC, which has a smaller, non-touch screen as opposed to the eXplorist 510, 610 and 710. As an aside, I’ll have a hands on review of the eXplorist 710 posted in the next few weeks.
