New Magellan outdoor GPS for those taking on the wild that aren't too wild
Magellan GPS releases the Magellan eXplorist 110 for the everyday Australian
Australia boasts over 500 national parks and a unique landscape so it's no wonder outdoor activities such as bushwalking are very much a part of our lifestyle and not just something enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts. That's why Magellan has introduced the new eXplorist 110 outdoor hand-held GPS – it offers easy to use quality outdoor navigation specifically designed for those who enjoy activities such as hiking, cycling and camping.
"Australians love the outdoors – we are blessed with so much natural beauty. You don't have to be the Bear Gryllis type to enjoy this great land. We developed the Magellan eXplorist 110 so that individuals, families, young adults, couples, groups and even older Australians can enjoy outdoor leisure activities on the weekends, holidays or any time they like," Paris Basson, Magellan Australia.
"The eXplorist 110 provides essential information people need to make the most of their outdoor activities and helps users feel safer to explore and enjoy nature. For example, one of the model's most handy features is a breadcrumbs option that allows users to keep track of their steps and backtrack so they are able to return to their base camp safely and keep a record of where they have travelled. For a tiny price of under $150.00 it offers so much fun and peace of mind." Paris said.
Other features the Magellan eXplorst 110 offers includes a coloured transflective screen that is readable in direct sunlight. It also shows shaded relief backgrounds on the world edition map, a Hunt and Fish calendar with useful tidal information for fisherman as well as Sun and Moon calendar that tells users the time the sun sets to help them prepare for when it gets dark. The model is also waterproof, can store 500 waypoints and can be clipped to a lanyard so it sits comfortably around your neck or off your backpack or bike. It can also be used for Geocaching, a real life game of treasure hunting where players search for caches hidden by other players.
The model joins five other products in the Magellan eXplorist range including the Magellan eXplorist GC, Magellan eXplorist 310, Magellan eXplorst 510, Magellan eXplorist 610 and the Magellan eXplorist 710. The Magellan 110 will be available from 10 April 2012 and has a recommended retail price of $149. It can be purchased at major outdoor retailers such as Rays Outdoors and BCF.
