Good product. Just be careful who you buy the refurbished ones from. Not from QualityElectronicSales!!!

Summary: This is my first gps purchase and I must say I love this thing for the price. I'm sure the more expensive newer ones are cool but the price was right on the refurbished one I bought. I love the free software you can download for it.
Summary: Got this for my husband and he has really enjoyed hiking with this GPS. He is able to mark point of interest with a photo and check actual miles hiked with ease. He loves the way it functions. Has really enjoyed this item. Great for out door people.
Summary: The Magellan Triton 1500 is more than just an awesome GPS device. It runs on Windows CE & can easily run a program, via a SD Card, that turns it into a Pocket PC. I watch movies, play games, read eBooks & can run OziEplorer, iGo8 & Beeline GPS software.
Summary: I won't reiterate what everyone else wrote, except to say that this is a really good GPS when you get things going your way. And that takes a bit of skulduggery, but stay with it and you will be rewarded. I use mine all the time and I'm not easy to please.
Summary: This gps is great. You must download all the updates for the maps and the firmware for it to work correctly, but once you do that it will work great. I recommend buying the national geographic TOPO for your state. It is worth the price and is easily downloaded onto your gps.

Excerpt: I was looking for a color mapping GPS that I could load topographical maps on. I couldn't stomach the price of a Garmin Colorado or Oregon and to upgrade the other Garmins to get the topo maps cost about the same as a Colorado.
Summary: I purchased the 1500 to replace my older merridian marine unit made by Magellan, I love it so far! We just spent a week in South Central Oregon Antelope hunting/Geocaching and the only thing I dont like about the unit so far is that it wont do Autorouting.
