Product Description
magellan Advanced, rugged, and waterproof handheld navigation solutions that are perfect for the novice geocacher or the experienced outdoorsman. Ready to use right out of the box. The eXplorist 310 is pre-loaded with the World Edition map, which includes a complete road network in the United States, Canada, Western Europe, and Australia, and major roads throughout the rest of the world. This unique preloaded map also includes water features, urban and rural land use, and city centers. Regional versions of Magellan's Summit Series topographic maps can be downloaded onto the eXplorist 310's 500MB of internal storage to expand mapping coverage and level of detail.

A vibrant, transflective color screen allows for the best readability in direct sunlight. To zero in on the exact location of a geocache, favorite fishing spot, or the next summit, the SiRFstarIII GPS chipset provides accuracy of 10-15 feet (3-5 meters). To keep your outdoor adventure going all day long, the device is powered by two AA batteries for 18 hours of constant usage. The eXplorist 310 is rugged, waterproof, and submersible to IPX-7 standards. All of this is packed into a small and attractive handheld device that can be hung around your neck with the optional Magellan lanyard or attached to your pack with the built-in carabineer hook.

The eXplorist 310 provides unmatched assistance with navigation, such as the combination of the world's two most useful navigational tools - a compass and a map! Overlay a series of different transparent compass styles on top of a pre-loaded worldwide map that show roads, water features, parks, and city centers. Access the dashboard screen that shows a mini-compass for quick reference and customizable navigation data fields, such as latitude, longitude, heading, bearing, distance to end, trip odometer, and many more. Go back to the map screen and view your active track, which is a series of digital breadcrumbs to record all yours movements. Mark your starting point (car, trailhead, parking lot, etc.) with a waypoint and easily navigate back to that location at the end of the day.

The eXplorist 310 supports paperless geocaching, which allows you to download more than 20 unique characteristics of each cache, including name, location, description, hider, size, difficulty, terrain, hint, spoilers, attributes, and last 20 user logs among a number of other details. Reference your track summary to keep track of your distance travelled, elevation gained or lost, complete travel time, moving time and stopped time, and average time to find. Easily reset your track summary statistics to track the details of your next geocaching adventure.

No matter where you enjoy the outdoors, the eXplorist 310 GPS receiver will provide precise GPS signals thanks to the Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) of WAAS, EGNOS, and MSAS; display coordinates in a myriad of different global systems, including UTM and WGS84; and accurately guide you to and from your next adventure, wherever in the world that may be!

Comments about Magellan eXplorist 310 GPS, North America:

I searched EVERY website and every device that I could and decided on the 310. I've had this since January '12. Right away I needed to call magellan customer service bc I couldn't get cache's loaded. They were very helpful and prompt. Turns out I just needed to go to a clear location for the unit to pick up my location. Since then it's been fantastic. I just recently changed batteries that were the lithium kind last week (mid may). I put in regular batteries now and Im already down 3/4 the way with minimal usage so I would defiantly suggest using the lithium ones. This unit DOES sync with mac. The unit is easy to use once you get used to it. The only downfall is the toggle which isn't all bad but if you are wanting to add field notes it could be cumbersome. This is my first GPSr and has worked fantastic. I do wish I would have bought the 510 bc of the touchscreen but that's just personal preference. Loading pocket queries is really easy, love that I can just pull it out and find the closest cache to me. Overall I would suggest this to anyone. I haven't had any problems at all.

      This is an easy to use unit, once you get the hang of it. It is very durable and gets me closer to the cache than the app on my phone.

          Thank you for your question.
          I believe you are asking if this product is WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) capable---Yes.
