Hi.

I am wanting to buy a GPS unit, have been looking at Magellan Explorist 310 or 110

Both seem good for what I need. But my questions is, how do I enter in the coordinates, as some caches you have to solve the puzzle and it will then give you the last few digits to the GZ. Eg:
Final is located at:

36° 54.ABC
174° 54.DEF

How do you enter these in (once I have figured out the final numbers)? or do these unit’s not let you?

Cheers
Sam

I think you would be happier with the 310. Really I would.
The 110 is less adaptable -- I do not think it will utilize an SD for expanded memory.

Regarding manual inputs, no problem. Download the entire 310 manual here .

You would just add a waypoint and manually enter the coords.

Thank you soooooo much for the quick reply.

Yes, I will get the 310

Please forgive me, as I'm male and getting older :-p I looked in the manual and couldn't see where it mentioned about been able to enter in coordiates? I do suffer from Male blindness.
