When you need to navigate in harsh conditions, the Magellan eXplorist 110 handheld GPS receiver can easily handle the job while your iPhone stays safe at home or in your pack.
The eXplorist 110 is rugged, waterproof, runs for 18 hours on a pair of AA batteries, has a bright 2.2” color transflective screen that provides great readability in direct sunlight and a built-in attachment point for lanyards and carabiners. It also comes preloaded with a world edition map of roads, parks, rivers, lakes, major city points, and other types of land use areas. Furthermore, it sports a high-sensitivity SiRFstarIII GPS with 3-5 meter accuracy, 500MB’s of user available memory to store waypoints, track logs, and geocaches.
Measuring 2.2”x4.37”x1.41” and weighing in at only 5.185oz, the eXplorist 110 GPS can be easily stored in any jacket pants or backpack pocket. It is also compatible with a variety of mounting accessories from Magellan. I highly recommend this GPS if you don’t want to risk breaking your much more expensive iPhone when out exploring the wilderness. It’s also a great option if you are looking for a spare GPS to add to your emergency go bag/survival kit.
