Magellan eXplorist GPS

I bought a new hiking GPS on Amazon last week and I received it on Thursday.

I like it a lot better than my last one. It went through batteries in no time at all so I rarely ever used it. This one lasts 18 hours on one pair of double A batteries. That's 16 hours better.

I still have to learn how to use it though. The somewhat unadorned map at left is my route around Occoneechee Mountain. No doubt it's accurate but there's not a lot of graphics there either.

I hope next time I use this GPS I'll have much prettier results. Maybe the data I want is contained in my data file and I just need to learn how to use the software better.

I'll have to hit Eno River park or maybe Duke Forest after work this week and try this again.
