Look for a better product, even if you have to pay a bit more.

  • Summary: Display is small and so is text for most modes. Did not come with any instructions, but instructions were found online. However, instructions are not extremely detailed and do not cover loading topographical maps. Batteries that came with the unit died in 30 minutes.

Caution! Not What It Claims!

Martin A Hogan "Marty From SF", Amazon
4 September 2013
  • Summary: First off, I would recommend any hiking GPS system as a backup to a simply map and compass. That said, I want to clarify something about this particular model. This is a basic beginner's device to learn about Navigation, Waypoints, Trails, GeoCache and all the additional methods that go along with...

Very Basic

  • Summary: I recieved this unit as a gift. It is a very basic handheld unit with no frill's straight out of the box. Someone in one of the prior reviews stated that they actualy read the booklet that came with the unit. EXACTLY! Read the booklet, become familiar with the controll's, etc.

Triton 200 is a good value

  • Summary: I use the Tritin 200 for hikeing and prospecting. When I pick up a rock sample, I record its location so there is no doubt about where it came from. The unit has many nice features, but i'm still learning. Nice clear screen.

good for the price.

  • Summary: Great for the money. Basic map is not only weak, but is not aligned with the GPS (about 1000 ft off at times). If you purchase the digital globe maps ($30/year) this is a very functional GPS. Waypoints, however, are not always accurate. The compass only works while moving. Still, great price!

This thing looks like a good deal at first, but it…

  • Summary: This thing looks like a good deal at first, but it seems nearly impossible to load maps with any useful information on to it. They claim that it comes with a "base map" of the U.S., don't plan on using it though. It only shows major highways, and doesn't even get those right.
  • Pros: Seems sturdy, Inexpensive, Gives latitude and longitude fairly accurately
  • Cons: If you want topo maps for hiking you're outta luck., There may be a way around the lack of useful maps, but be prepared to spend days and days downloading third party software, downloading maps, learning to rasterize your own maps, figuring out how to load them.

  • Summary: It does everything that I need it to do. just right for geocaching. The best part I like about it is that it has a color screen and can download straight from the geocaching.com website.
