Just spent all day yesterday caching with the 710 and polarized sunglasses... didn't even think about it till I read this post.

I had no problems.

Great to hear! I am so looking forward to purchasing the GPS on Monday! :woohoo:

Quick question--how readable is the display of the the x10 series with polarized sunglasses B) ? I bike with polarized glasses and not super easy to take glasses off to read the display. I know it is a bit difficult with Triton 500.

Phil, are you a Magellan employee? 😉 The 710 sounds amazing and its not just you. I am hearing praise from everybody!

Over the years I've had plenty of bad things to say about Magellan, I always liked their products but they always got lots of things wrong.
Not this time, they got almost everything right, the new Explorist line is truly amazing!

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Once you pick up a 710 you might very well begin to believe you have the perfect GPS in your hand - and you might be right!

I've never used one better...

I've got a Triton 2000, the 710 is very much easier to read in sunlight.
I don't use polarized sunglasses but the difference between the Triton and 710 screen is amazing.
