GPS Designed For Nature Lovers
- Readable in sunlight
- Especially designed for outdoors
- Can store 500 waypoints
Australia has more than 500 national parks , which is why Magellan has introduced the new eXplorist 110 outdoor hand-held GPS – it offers outdoor navigation designed for those who enjoy activities such as hiking, cycling and camping.
“Australians love the outdoors – we are blessed with so much natural beauty,” says Paris Basson from Magellan Australia. “You don’t have to be the Bear Gryllis type to enjoy this great land. We developed the Magellan eXplorist 110 [for] individuals, families, young adults, couples, groups and even older Australians…”
It is said to have many features including the ‘breadcrumbs’ option that allows users to keep track of their steps and backtrack so they are able to return to their base camp safely and keep a record of where they have travelled.
Other features include a coloured transflective screen that is readable in direct sunlight. It has a Hunt and Fish calendar, as well as Sun and Moon calendar that tells users the time the sun sets to help them prepare for when it gets dark. The model is also waterproof, can store 500 waypoints and can be clipped to a lanyard so it can sit around your neck or off your backpack or bike. It can also be used for Geocaching, a real life game of treasure hunting where players search for caches hidden by other players.
