Summary: I recently ordered one of these from a third-party seller on Amazon. When it arrived, it refused to connect to a satellite. When I called Magellan to see what was wrong, I was told that the product was obsolete, and that it was set to use satellites that were no longer in operation.
It works like a dream. Great gift for some new to GPS

Summary: I would another one of these in a heartbeat. It is easy to use and operates flawlessly! It is easy to use. i bought it for my son who is a total beginner to the world of GPS. Within an hour he was up and running.
Summary: I bought this item to use basicly for geocaching. It worked good to lead me to the cache zone within a few feet. I soon found out that I needed a few more features like computer connection through usb and in order to do that I would need more items to go with this unit.
Summary: I have simple needs for my handheld GPS. I do a lot of hiking. When I'm on a trail hike I simply want to know distance traveled and elevation. When hiking without trails I want to make sure I can find my way back to the starting point. My new Magellan serves these uses very well.
Item exactly as shown - Great deliver - Would buy from again!

Summary: The Magellan GPS 315 offers a lot of features to the right user. If you are looking for a unit to be used in the car to get you from ppint A to point B, this is not the one to consider. This is primarily for the hiker, boater, and anyone interested in GPS gaming.
Good GPS for the money/maybe "vintage" but still quite usefull!

Summary: The Magellan 315 may be a little outdated amoung handheld GPS units but this one works just fine. The AA batteries last for at least 8 hours and the unit has no trouble finding it's position. It takes a minute or two to link up on startup but no longer than the new GPS unit in my Jeep.
Summary: Two of my Tent Mates in Iraq had Magellan 315's. They worked flawlessly. They are very user friendly and extemely durable. There are newer fancier GPS units out there, but if you want one that is dependable, easy to use and low cost, the 315 fits the bill.
Summary: Very user friendly, easy to learn to navigate anywhere. Straight forward directions of use - not complicated at all. Any one could use this device and find their destination or wayward point. - Ken
Summary: Upon Unpacking the Magellan GPS color trak the first thing I noticed was the weight, Its pretty heavy for a hand held unit also the screen is long and narrow , not a problem just looks a bit strange.
Summary: I bought it for my son as to get use to using a GPS for fishing. The GPS was as described the only thing that was dissapointing was the screen comes up faded and hard to see except in certain light.
