I received the item from RSMSTUFF very quickly and it was very well wrapped. It was slightly cheaper than directly from Amazon. The first thing to notice was that it is solidly made and slightly heavier than I expected. I had problems starting it and found one of the supplied batteries was a dud, however putting in fresh batteries the unit came to life. Its start up time was reasonable (but not fast) and found the satellites easily. The camera works well albeit a little slow.

I took it for a test walk and found the pre-installed World Map OK but limited (not unexpected). Also I noticed a few metres difference between the map and the GPS position. Not really a problem as you know when your feet are wet you are walking in the river. Overall it doesn't perform badly.

I later decided to update the firmware. This was easily done but took a little time but not excessive! The whole process was fairly easy and well controlled by the software. Although I was stunned to see the firmware that came with the unit (v3.41) be replaced by v7.13. Indicating a significant time between the first installation and my purchase.

I am not a smart phone owner so I have a use for these handheld units, but I cannot help these type of units have a very limited life.

I will most likely update this review as I use the unit more.

This was my first Magellan GPS. Up until now I have always preferred Garmin, but I gave this a go as I liked the big screen.

Plus points:
Finds your position quickly
Good battery life
Relatively sensible menus
Very durable

Minus points:
Arrow too big.
It took me ages to work out why no caches were being displayed, only waypoints. It turned out that the setting for displaying caches has two fields, the second, unlabelled field contains the setting you need to use.
TalkyToaster maps only work with Garmin. There are other maps available, and they only cost a few quid, but if you like talkytoaster you will be disappointed.

Bit disappointed. It eats batteries even lithiums and sometimes it struggles to receive satellites.
Another thing, when you zoom out the coastlines get very very jagged only resolved when you zoom in again. Sometimes you want a wide picture.

For the money it's just ok, but I thought in this day and age a routing facility would be available. This won't tell you the route, merely pointing at the final destination.

I think there are better ones available for slightly more money.

The Magellan 510 is stated as being specially designed for geocaching in association with [...]. I am having a problem getting to grips with this product. I find it very hard to use. This may be because I am a beginner to geocaching. I caught the "bug" when I purchased the iPhone [...] app. The latter is much easier to use with practically no learning curve.

The problems with the iPhone are that :-
1.I was only able to get accuracy to withing 150 feet, and
2.the battery is drained in an hour or so. I have bought a TeckNet external charger to overcome this as I expect to use it alongside the Magellan.

A big plus with the iPhone is that, via WiFi or 3G, it accesses [the geocaching] website directly to download geocaches and upload logs - so we can usually pick up local caches immediately wherever we are. With the Magellan it is necessary to plan ahead via PC or Mac and have a Premium [geocaching website] membership costing $30 a year - which, for me, is cheap at the price. I found the free Magellan VantagePoint software useful after uploading the Magellan 510 device map on to my hard drive. There is, however, an excellent PC application GSAK (Geocaching Swiss Army Knife)which does the job really well and has more features than I would ever use, together with a variety of suitable map views. It has the failing that we can only see one geocache in a map at one time. To plan an outing we need to see where the groups are. This is overcome by using the .gpx files downloaded from [the geocaching] and importing them into a suitable application. I started by using Google Earth, but this does not show the right detail. I have found a website called [...] which is really good. I will probably still use a GSAK map and add caches manually because some actually show footpaths.
