Garmin GPSMAP 62S vs Magellan eXplorist GC

Recommended Posts

I own the Magellan eXplorist gc. I quite like it a lot when it works, but I find that it loses me a lot, and then takes a while to find me again. Which often means I walk right past a bunch of caches while it's looking for me. I LIKE it, but I find it frustrating when it doesn't work.

 

I have an opportunity to buy the Garmin 62s, but I know nothing at all about GPS units. I like mine because it's designed for Geocaching, and the Garmin DOES have a geocaching app... but what does that mean??!

 

Does anyone own it, and have experience with the Magellan? How do they differ? The garmin has a digital compass, wheras the Magellan doesn't... I think that's about all I know. And I don't even really know what that means... LOL

 

Can you help? The seller is holding it for me while I research.

 

TIA!!

Never mind. After learning how to download the caches to my phone for offline use (I HAD NO IDEA!) I decided to pass.
