It is nice to know what these are when you are out ...

Summary: I had the Black & White version but it stopped working so I bought this one for my snowmobile as it tells me lakes & rivers on the snowmobile trails. It is nice to know what these are when you are out in the middle of nowhere on the trails.
Excellent device, but a little bit dark display ...!

Summary: It's a smart and good accuracy device with simple useful functions, I personally trust it even when I go fishing by boat in a normal climate of course! the only issue is, it has a bit dark display *****
Summary: Bought this to replace an old Meridian Gold. The color screen is more battery intensive but it is easier to distinguish details than the B&W. This unit provides a great amount of functionality and with a WAAS lock is very accurate horizontally.
Summary: Gps I purchased two weeks ago and was immediately impressed by the number of features available in a price. But it can put the maps, to navigate better. Size is fit for installation in vehicles and in portable and pages. display a good life expectancy of a battery roughly 14 hours.
Summary: These were great units but magellan will not repair them anymore they want you to buy the new Triton units. Truth is the Meridian is way better than Triton I don't know what they were thinking but they went the wrong direction with Triton.
Meridian Color Handheld GPS Receiver eats batteries!

Summary: Top of the line when introduced in 2002, these units are still working with info that's in place now. Very good for Geocaching but eats batteries! Not sure if you (I) really need a color GPS. It's the color that sucks up the juice! The user manual is a MUST READ! Only 102 pages, but good info.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for an existing Magellan Meridian Color Handheld GPS Receiver that I had with a bad screen. Obviously I liked it enough to buy the same make and model. The only complaint I really have is that it is slow to get a 3d fix.
