Magellan eXplorist XL for hikers

Magellan eXplorist XL

Following yesterday's announcement of the multifunction CrossoverGPS, Magellan has also revealed its eXplorist XL for outdoor travellers. Unlike the earlier device, the eXplorist XL is vertically-oriented for handheld use by hikers and is further toughened against drops and shocks through its rubber shell. The 3.5-inch screen is readable even in direct sunlight and is the largest of its kind for any dedicated GPS handheld, Magellan says. The company adds that its receiver is geotagging-friendly and bundles a management program that can share marked locations between the eXplorist and its host computer. Basic maps of North America are built into the system's memory, Magellan says, but owners can buy and transfer more detailed marine, sea, and trail maps via SD card to specialize its role. Magellan sells the XL today for $400.

    eXplorist with Macs

    While not technically supported by Magellan, using your eXplorist with your Mac is very doable using some great apps out there. http://chimbisimo.googlepages.com has a list of those and how to use them to interface with your explorist.
