SHORT REVIEW
============
If I had to give some basic description of this unit, I would have to describe it as the equivalent of an Android Mobile phone, with Garmin devices being the iPhones.

Whereas the Explorist 710 is a powerhouse of a GPS, with a lot of customisable features, it might be a little clunky, and a bit more fiddly to "sort out", than its equivalent Garmin rival. It really is a personal decision however, I've previously used Garmins, and so can see the merits of both brands.

I personally am enjoying the freedom I get with the Explorist 710.

LONG VERSION
============
As an environmental researcher I've had the pleasure of using several GPS receivers over the years, mostly Garmin.

However I felt let down with my last Garmin device, so felt it was time to try something new, the Magellan Explorist 710 was it. My unit came bundled from another supplier with a 4gb MicroSD card with the complete 1:50k Ordnance Survey mapping. The OS maps are pretty good, though there is one downside, in that they are locked to the card they came on. This means that although the Explorist 710 can support up to 32gb of additional memory, if you want to use those OS maps, you're stuck with the 4gb card they came on, and the 600mb or so that is left spare!

Not to worry though, one of the strongest features of this unit is how versatile it is to add your own custom maps. It didn't take much hunting on the internet to find user-led forums and guides on how to create custom maps based on freely accessible spatial data. I've had my device for 5 days and already have a slightly more detailed Ordnance Survey map and other graphical maps on it. You DON'T have to pay a premium for maps from Garmin or Magellan!

I am not very techy and this is the first GPS unit I have owned. This unit has a really easy to use menu system - easy to plan routes and swithc between the four menus which are accessed from the corners of the screen. I love the auto assign button which enables you to assign functions, places etc as a short cut menu. The video camera, microphone and camera work really well. I take this running and biking and geotag places on the route and share them with my wife on return! The European turn by turn road mapping was brilliant when I went to Annecy recently. I picked up the hire car at Geneva airport and used the 710 to take me to the hotel. Driving in france on my own to a new place was made stress free and also much safer!! There's so much functionality on this it is still taking me time to understand its full potential!!

The Magellan Explorist is an excellent GPS, and when loaded with UK OS maps an invaluable trekking aid. Its normal maps for France were brillliant, giving excellent detail even in the most remote parts of the country.

Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with the difficulty of operation and after many hours trying to make it a usefull hiking aid it now lies on my desk unused. Added agrivation is the map is next to useless with little detail and you have to buy further maps at around £130 which for an expensive peice of kit is not on.
Not recommended. Any offers for this vertually unused item welcome.
