MAC Software compatibility a bummer otherwise good

Summary: I have had the Triton 1500 and encountered none of the many problems I see listed. People say they can't see screen in sunlight but all you have to do is adjust brightness with side button because screen times out and dims to conserve battery.
Summary: This is a quality product, except it comes with very sketchy instructions and is pretty complicated to operate. I wish Magellan epuipped the product with a more detailed operations manual. Not for a newbie.
Summary: I like its compactness, its color and its ease of use. I elected to buy it because my older unit did not have any software to update it anymore. I don't like that I had to buy a lot of software to get things that I want for the Triton 1500. For example, the base map is inadequate.
Summary: OK, so I try to avoid being an early adopter, but I've been waiting a long time for the next step in GPS technology, so I jumped at the chance of buying a Triton 1500. FYI, the 1500 is the same as the 2000 minus the camera. I carry a Canon on top of my pack so I did not need it.
