Summary: Great gps for hiking boating and flying. This is not your points of intrest gps. It is used for elevation and off road use the best. I use mine in my boat and on my enduro motorcycle the most. This is my second one. My original one still works.
Get a Magellan Meridian, don't add your name to the Darwin Pool.

Summary: I do a lot of hunting and fishing in remote places or out of sight of land. Even in warm weather it only takes 1 freak storm to turn a nice day into a disaster. These Magellan GPS units are easy to use and have backtracking to bring you right back to within 9 feet of your original starting point. I have one in my hunting pack, and another in my float bag for fishing. I pretty much won't leave home on a trip without one, because they've saved my life fishing offshore.
Summary: Magellan calls this model a "legacy product" and they refuse to support it. Meridian Color is actually about 8 years old, but Magellan has no shame. You will not even be able to register your "new" unit. If nothing else, dealing with Magellan is very frustrating; they always push you to participate in their "gear exchange" program - but do nothing more. You'll be better off buying Garmin or Delorme handheld GPS.
Great Magellan color GPS, Love it would recommend to all

Summary: I have had a Magellan gold for a long time and loved it. It always works great so My son ask me to get him a GPS. I have had no problems with mine so I got him a Magellan color which is one better than mine. The Magellan always gets great reception even in real wooded areas. We use them for hunting and they have saved us on more than one occasion tracking back to our deer to pack him out and gets us back to camp even in the dark. I wouldn't go hunting with out it.
