The eXplorist 510 is a waterproof global positioning system receiver from the Magellan company that is specifically designed for outdoor use. Featuring a 3.2-megapixel digital camera for capturing and geo-tagging digital imagery, this model is also fitted with a small microphone and speaker for capturing and exporting content while hiking or camping. "World Edition" maps are included that cover Canada and the US as well as Australia and western Europe, with simulated 3D topographical data for added water and elevation level data. The 510 also supports paperless geocaching with one-button locational information exporting as well as GPX file downloading for on-the-go checkpoint searching. In addition to the 3-inch color touchscreen, two customizable hard buttons are included for easy shortcut access to a user's most frequently-visited services. The "OneTouch" favorites menu interface can be arranged to house hotlinks to a user's own waypoints and locations, with 12 icon spaces total. 15 hours of battery life are available on a single AA-battery charge, allowing users to rely on the 510 all day long without risk of malfunction.
