Magellan Launches eXplorist 610 For The Outdoorsmen Out There

Need to get out more? Have the urge to explore? Magellan's newest has you covered. The eXplorist 610 is a new outdoor navigator, and the latest model is shipping with a waterproof casing, a rugged design and Summit Series topographic maps. There's an optional World Edition map includes coverage to over 200 countries, and users can create waypoints, record tracks, and route from point to point.


If you're into geocaching, you can download up to 10,000 paperless GPX files, and furthermore, you can review your trip statistics with more that 30 navigational data fields. It's powered by a pair of AA batteries, so even if you're headed into the brush for an extended period of time, you can stock up on AA cells before heading out in order to have enough juice to get home. With a new set, it'll last around 16 hours under normal conditions.

There's an integrated 3.2MP camera, microphone and speaker, and combined with a GPS track log, the eXplorist 610 allows you to create a complete geographic and multimedia record of each outdoor adventure. The $479.99 may sound steep, but getting home from the jungle? Now that's priceless.
