Magellan eXplorist 300 Handheld GPS Navigator
There's a lot to Magellan's small, cool eXplorist 300 handheld GPS navigation device beyond its vibrant blue exterior. Inside and out, the eXplorist is built to provide real GPS (global positioning system) abilities for serious outdoor use--from its tough, impact-resistant, waterproof exterior to Magellan's proven, powerful, and easy-to-use technology, the eXplorist 300 rewrites the rules by proving you can spend less and actually get more.

The eXplorist 300 includes all-new Magellan TrueFix technology with a 14 parallel channel, WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver to provide precise position fixes within three meters while ensuring reliable, accurate satellite-signal acquisition and tracking. Small, lightweight, and easy-to-use, anyone can pick it up and get going without studying a manual. Among its many features, the eXplorist 300 offers three navigation screens with track plotting to help you find the fun--and then find your way back.
Explorers will appreciate Magellan's one-button access, which takes you directly to the functions that matter most: the menu, navigation screens, personal points-of-interest, "go to" routing, and backlight. In addition, the eXplorist 300 stores up to 500 waypoints, 20 routes, and five track logs with up to 2,000 points each, providing ample storage even for avid navigators.
The unit also supplies a built-in North American background map, which offers convenient access to roads, parks, waterways, airports, and more. Going beyond the step-down eXplorist 200, the 300 adds a trio of handy tools to simplify navigation: a barometer, an altimeter, and an electronic compass, which frees you from needing to be in motion to get a direction to a destination.
Designed for compact, fit-in-your-pocket convenience, the eXplorist receiver measures just 4.6 by 2.1 by 1.3 inches (11.7 by 5.4 by 3.3 centimeters) and weighs less than four ounces (115 grams), yet still has room for a large, 2.3-inch (5.8-centimeter), four-level grayscale LCD. A zoom capability and an amber backlight ensure optimum viewing, even at night.
The unit's rugged exterior is cased in a rubber-armored, impact-resistant shell that is waterproof to the rigid IPX-7 standard. The eXplorist 300 is ready for adventure in all conditions and terrain, whether you'll be hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, or simply finding your way around a new area.
