It can be hard to find the perfect gift sometimes. A present that’s useful, fun and maybe even encourages you spend quality time with your family isn’t something that can be found on every store shelf. But this year, Magellan has a gift that does all those things and it’s sure to put a smile on the face of whoever opens it!
The Magellan eXplorist GC is the first handheld GPS device designed exclusively for geocaching. For those that aren’t familiar with the activity, geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt adventure that has taken the world by storm. The concept is simple. Check out a geocaching website like Geocaching.com, find a location near you and use your GPS or smartphone to track down the cache.

I loved the rugged outdoor design; the eXplorist GC is waterproof with a transreflective screen to make reading the device out in the sun a little easier. And because sometimes adventures can take longer than expected, I really appreciated that the two AA batteries that powered the device lasted for up to 18 hours. [Read more…]
