WINNER! Win A Magellan GPS
Kym Bouquet of East Ballina, NSW, is the winner of our Magellan GPS competition. Kym wins a fantastic Magellan eXplorist 110, with an RRP of $149.95, which is perfect for quality navigation designed for those who enjoy leisure activities including hiking, cycling and camping but don’t necessarily consider themselves the Bear Gryllis type.
The Magellan eXplorist 110 is a hand held GPS which is designed with the outdoorsy type in mind. When you conider that Australia has more than 500 national parks waiting to be explored this is a piece of equipment which will be really useful for most Australians.
For example, one of the model’s most handy features is a "breadcrumbs" option that allows users to keep track of their steps and backtrack so they are able to return to their base camp safely and keep a record of where they have travelled.

Other features the Magellan eXplorst 110 offers includes a coloured transflective screen that is readable in direct sunlight. It also shows shaded relief backgrounds on the world edition map, a Hunt and Fish calendar with useful tidal information for fisherman as well as Sun and Moon calendar that tells users the time the sun sets to help them prepare for when it gets dark. The model is also waterproof, can store 500 waypoints and can be clipped to a lanyard so it sits comfortably around your neck or off your backpack or bike. It can also be used for Geocaching, a real life game of treasure hunting where players search for caches hidden by other players.
