Final Thoughts

The GPSMAP 67i seems to have replaced the Explorer+ and is much more powerful. Garmin will eventually stop supporting the Explorer+, and even now, Garmin does not sell it on their website. You can only get the Garmin Explorer+ on retail sites that still have stock available.

I recommend saving your money up to buy the more expensive 67i as it is a better device, plus the Explorer+ is being phased out.
