Geocachers are a funny mob, trying to surreptitiously ferret out hidden things that have been buried in often very conspicuous places. Magellan can help you out with their new Magellan eXplorist GC handheld GPS unit. It has a colour screen, compass overlay and uses the SiRFstarIII GPS chipset. It runs on a pair of AA batteries which will keep you searching continuously for 18 hours.
Designed specifically for geocachers, you can hook it up to a PC and download lists of nearby caches. Or, if you’ve got the wanderlust, caches located anywhere in the world. You can add notes and it comes with a trial 30 pro membership of geocaching.com. Just beware of the muggles. [Via Slashgear]
To support all your geocaching adventures, the eXplorist GC comes packed with tons of helpful hardware features. Most striking, the vibrant color screen is transflective, which allows for the best readability in direct sunlight. To zero in on the exact location of a hidden cache, the SiRFstarIII GPS chipset provides accuracy of 10-feet (3-meters). To keep your fun going all day long, the device is powered by two AA batteries for 18 hours of constant usage.
