The newest addition to the eXplorist family of dedicated outdoor GPS devices, the eXplorist 310 provides outdoor enthusiasts with many of the features found in higher-end devices, including a premium world map and the ability to upload detailed topographic maps. Whether for an avid outdoorsman navigating to a favorite fishing hole, an up-and-coming geocacher graduating to more complex finds, or an experienced backpacker looking for a powerful, yet light and portable GPS; the eXplorist 310 is the perfect companion for hundreds of different outdoor activities.
With a vibrant, 2.2-inch transflective color screen, a highly sensitive GPS chipset providing 3-5 meters of accuracy, and the ability to record hundreds of waypoints, tracks, and routes, the eXplorist 310 GPS provides all the essential navigation features required to venture into the great outdoors. It comes pre-loaded with Magellan’s World Edition map, which includes a road network of more than 200 countries. The device supports 10,000 paperless geocaches and users can expand the map detail and coverage by adding regional versions of Magellan’s Summit Series topographic maps. Users start each adventure with a single click, record every step, and monitor their progress by viewing the track summary statistics or quickly find their way home using the backtrack function. Two AA batteries provide up to 18 hours of continual outdoor use.

During 2010, Magellan reinvented its eXplorist series targeting the outdoor enthusiast market, starting with the introduction of the eXplorist GC in March and continuing with the high-end eXplorist 510, 610, and 710 GPS devices in July. The high-end eXplorist models each feature a 3.0-inch color touch screen and are equipped with a 3.2 mega-pixel camera, microphone, and speaker to enable users to record and share their adventures with friends. The eXplorist GC is the only color handheld GPS exclusively dedicated to geocaching. The new eXplorist product line was welcomed with positive reviews from both consumers and editors. The introduction of the eXplorist 310 demonstrates Magellan’s continued commitment to outdoor navigation with more products planned later in 2011.
