Magellan eXplorist 200
Price Paid: $115
It was a great GPS when it worked. It received signal with tree cover and cloudy without much problem. Used in with Topo program from Magellan, the GPS took on a whole level of enjoyment.
However, the software froze on me and I could not get it to work again. And the Magellan customer service is a very long and time-consuming process. And I believe their support centers are located in India because everyone I talked to had a strong Indian accent and it became difficult at some points to understand them.
So the product gets 4 stars but the overall Magellan experience gets 3 stars.
Price Paid: $100 US
Looks and works great although the rubber covering the joystick is flimsy and fell off under only occasional use. Great otherwise!
Price Paid: $115
It starts up easy in the cold. It has a lot of nifty features. The Magellan 200 is a one-of-a-kind GPS.
