+Prairie Dog Posted November 30, 2006 Share Posted November 30, 2006 I got my new Magellan Explorist 500 yesterday. The UPS guy came later than usual, like eight o'clock at night and dropped it on my doorstep. I was in the middle of cooking so I put the box to one side. This morning was like Christmas had come early for me. I ordered one of the nice bundle deals from TigerGPS. This was a very good deal in my opinion. In the box was the GPS'r, rechargeable battery, mapping software, car mount, car charger, PC cable, and home charger. Only thing not included is a lanyard and carrying case. First impressions are good. I'm amazed at how small the GPS'r is. I like the color screen, too. Cold start time is much faster than on some of the older Magellan models. This one had my fix in a little over a minute. I can't wait to start using this new unit. But, what will become of the Sportrak Map? It's my old reliable. We've found almost 300 caches together. I'm deeply connected to this trusty old unit. It's why I love Magellan products. I think I will hunt 6 more caches with the Sportrak so I will have 300 finds with it. Then I'll start carrying the new Explorist 500. Just wanted to share, thanks. Quote Link to comment
