Magellan TrueFixT technology provides superior accuracy and reliability giving you the freedom to explore without concern of getting lost.

Like carrying your own little weather station, now you'll know what might be rolling in.

Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery
The Li-Ion rechargeable battery can keep your eXplorist continuously powered-up for up to 15 hours (with backlight not "on", 12 hours with backlight "on"). Recharge your battery directly through your receiver again and again without reducing its performance. Use ANY brand of Li-Ion battery (Magellan battery is 3.7V/1300 mAh)
