Magellan eXplorist 400
The Magellan eXplorist 400 is in the middle of Magellan’s eXplorist line of handheld GPS receivers. The eXplorist 400 features the ability to store unlimited waypoints, routes, and trackpoints on SD cards. You can add nearly whatever type of maps you would like to the eXplorist 400 such as topo maps, lake maps, or street maps. Maps can be downloaded via USB.
There is 8 Mb of built in maps available on the Magellan eXplorist 400 leaving 8 Mb of internal storage. This remaining memory can store 5 tracklogs, 20 routes and 500 POIs. The eXplorist 400 also comes with a Geocache Manager allowing you to download geocache details directly to the eXplorist 400.
You can expect to get about 17 hours of battery life from the Li-Ion battery. The device is water resistant so if it starts to rain while geocaching you shouldn’t have any troubles. The Magellan eXplorist 400 comes with a grayscale display which should be fine for many people. If you would like a color display, go for the Magellan eXplorist 500. If you don’t need the additional memory storage options via SD cards you can save a little money by opting for the Magellan eXplorist 300.
