The Magellan eXplorist 510 is mid-performance GPS unit with all the bells and whistles. You can fully document your adventures using the built-in 3.2MP camera, video and voice recorder. This GPS and WAAS-enabled receiver provides decent reception to mark way points and follow tracks. Even though we liked all the extra perks and features, we also had our caveats. It features a larger three-inch screen, but we were unhappy with its plastic construction. Of all our tested devices, it produced the most glare in both high and low light. Many of our testers did not like how the keyboard was split between two screens. Finally, we wished this device had a rechargeable battery. Aside from these issues, this is a decent and feature-filled device.
If you're looking for a more powerful unit with similar features, check out the Garmin Montana 680. It is the only other device tested with a camera, and a better one at that. Or if you like the eXplorist but want better performance, check out the eXplorist 610 or eXplorist 710.
