The eXplorist 710 is a higher-end model in Magellan's eXplorist series of handheld outdoor GPS devices. Like the 510 and 610, it features a waterproof design, 3.0" touchscreen with customizable physical buttons, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. And like the 610, it includes pre-loaded Summit Series maps, which provide more detailed topographic data for the US. The 710 adds City Series maps, enabling turn-by-turn directions for US urban areas. A barometric altimeter for precise altitude measurements and a 3-axis electronic compass for accurate directional information are standard. Like the other eXplorist models, the 710 supports paperless geocaching downloads. Battery life is rated at 15 hours.
