Overview

The eXplorist GC navigation device provides unmatched assistance with navigation, such as the combination of the world's two most useful navigational tools - a compass and a map! Overlay a series of different transparent compass styles on top of a pre-loaded worldwide map that shows roads, water features, parks and city centres.

Access the dashboard screen that shows a mini-compass for quick reference and customisable navigation data fields, such as latitude, longitude, heading, bearing, distance to end, trip odometer, and many more. Go back to the map screen and view your active track, which is a series of digital breadcrumbs to record all your movements. Mark your starting point (car, trailhead, parking lot...) with a waypoint and easily navigate back to that location once you've finished your hike, walk or unearthed your fill of caches.

To support all of your outdoor adventures, including geocaching, the eXplorist GC also comes with tons of helpful features. A vibrant colour transflective screen, which allows for the best readability in direct sunlight. To zero in on the exact location of a hidden geocache or vantage point, the SiRFstarIII GPS chipset provides accuracy of 3-5 meters.

To keep your fun going all day long, the device is powered by two AA batteries for 18 hours of constant usage.

The eXplorist GC is rugged, waterproof, and submersible (IPX-7 standards). All of this is packed into a small and comfortable handheld device that can be hung around your neck or attached to your pack with the built-in carabineer hook.

The eXplorist GC supports paperless geocaching, which allows you to download more than 20 unique characteristics of each cache, including name, location, description, hider, size, difficulty, terrain, hint, spoilers, attributes, and last 20 user logs among a number of other details.

eXplorist GC comes with the most popular geocaches pre-loaded to provide a unique out of box experience. You can literally ""turn it on and go!"" The device can also hold up to 10,000 Geocaches.

Enjoy a seamless connection to geocaching.com. This allows you to search more than one million caches worldwide. With a click of the mouse, you can transfer the information with the Send to GPS feature. Additionally, with a Premium Membership to geocaching.com, you can create custom Pocket Queries and update your device with fresh cache information easily on a weekly basis.

Reference your Trip Summary to keep track of your distance travelled, complete travel time, moving time and stopped time, and average time to find. Easily reset your Trip Summary statistics to track the details of your next geocaching adventure.

So for basic navigation while outdoors or for Geocaching adventures, the eXplorist GC has you covered.
