Magellan eXplorist 200 Review

Explorist_200UPDATE: 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 200 is one of Magellan’s entry level GPS receivers. Unlike the eXplorist 100, this unit includes a base map. Stepping up to the eXplorist 300 gets you an electronic compass and barometric altimeter. Beware however; none of these units can be connected to your PC, meaning all coordinates must be entered manually. A good alternative that comes with a PC cable is the eXplorist 210. And with the 210, you can load DirectRoute maps for highway navigation.

  1. Where I can find maps of North America and Europe form explorist 200>

  2. There is no way to transfer maps to the eXplorist 200. At least not without buying a cable or hacking it…

    So that’s the first obstacle.
