Magellan Unveils eXplorist GC Specifically for Geocaching

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
