Article: 1600
By George Christ, November 2009

The Magellan eXplorist 100 is what you are looking for. Waterproof, does coordinates, compass, and simple tracks; no maps, no directions (other than straight-line course back to saved waypoints), no other bells/whistles to speak of…other than a backlight. I believe it floats, but I have not tested that…

I’ve had mine for about 4-5 years and use it frequently for both Scouting and for establishing/following headings for rocket recovery. Great tool.
