The eXplorist 610 is a mid-range model in Magellan's eXplorist series of handheld outdoor GPS devices. Like the 510 and 710, it features a waterproof design, 3.0" touchscreen with customizable physical buttons, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The 610, however, features more detailed pre-loaded US topographic maps than the 510. The eXplorist 610 also adds a barometric altimeter for precise altitude measurements and a 3-axis electronic compass for accurate directional information. The device also supports paperless geocaching. Battery life is rated at 15 hours. The higher-end eXplorist 710 adds City Series maps for turn-by-turn urban routing.

Does the worldwide basemap includes maps of South America? Specifically Colombia?
