eXplorist 110 compared to the eXplorist GC
on December 26, 2012
I have had two eXplorist GCs and when the second one started malfunctioning a little, I bought the eXplorist 110. I thought that the eXplorist 110 was a step up, but it seems to be the same as the GC, except for the graphics, a couple more options for driving and hiking, and setup. I was happy with the GC and had to get used to the eXplorist 110. I use it mostly for Geocaching, so I guess that I would prefer the eXplorist GC over the eXplorist 110, although I do like the tracking option on the eXplorist 110. The two things that I don't like about the design of both of these is that the on-off button stopped working on my first GC and the toggle knob on my second GC is starting to malfunction. I expect that the same could happen to the eXplorist 110. Both of the eXplorist GCs malfunctioned after around a year or so. What I did, was to buy a hard case for the 110, so that the toggle knob hopefully will not get damaged in storage and transport.
