The thought of geocaching never really appealed to me. Basically, some people get together and set up a treasure box that has stuff in it. You use a GPS device to find the geocache box and you can take an item form the box when you find it, but you are supposed to put an item into the box as well.

If geocaching is something that appeals to you, Magellan has offered up a new device that is specifically for geocaching called the eXplorist. The device comes preloaded with the most popular geocache locations around the world. The device is rugged and waterproof.

The device has familiar graphics with smiley faces for logs and merit-awards to show geocaching expertise. The device gets power from a pair of AA batteries and can work for up to 18 hours per set of batteries. It uses a SiRF starIII chipset with 3-meter accuracy. The device will ship in April for $199.99.
