Magellan Explorist 710

The Sell: A GPS lover's GPS. The Test: Geocaching geeks will drool over the techy perks, like the ability to tag voice memos and 3.2-mega­pixel photos with coordinates, the 3-D views of the 1:24,000-scale trail topos, and the highly customizable display. The only downsides: the device takes 30 seconds to boot up—about three times longer than the Garmin—and our fresh batteries died within eight hours. The Verdict: For everything from panning around a map to serious GPS play/work, nothing beats the Explorist's sharp three-inch touch screen. Just pack some extra Energizers. 6.9 oz; $550;
