Magellan eXplorist 300 Review


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 300 GPS is one of eight models in the eXplorist line (16 if you differentiate between the North American and European models). With that many different models, you can bet there is confusion over the differences between them, so here’s the low-down on the 300. It is very similar to the eXplorist 200, except that the 300 adds an electronic compass and barometric altimeter (features found only in the 300 and 600 models in the eXplorist line). Moving further up in the product line, the 400, 500 and 600 models add SD card slots so that you can load maps to the unit. With the 300 you are limited to the built-in 8 MB base-map.
