It's that time of year when the temperatures are starting to rise and you're probably thinking about heading into the great outdoors. While you're out there, maybe you'd like to give the sport of geocaching a try. (What's geocaching? It's like a high-tech treasure hunt. Check out this video for an explanation.)
The eXplorist GC is Magellan's first standalone geocaching device--although not its first handheld GPS device. The eXplorist feature preloaded geocache data for its worldwide maps and the ability to interface with the geocaching.com Web site for adding thousands more cache points to the device. The eXplorist also features a rugged construction, so you won't have to worry too much about Mother Nature getting the best of it.
It was about this time last year when we took a look at the Geomate.jr, the first standalone geocaching device we've tested. But with a full color screen and a more comprehensive interface, the eXplorist GC is a more grown-up geocaching solution than the toy-like geomate.
