Excerpt: I upgraded from my Triton 500 to this unit. This is an amazing unit. Very fast acquisition time. The built-in digital camera was my main reason for upgrading to this unit. I found that having a waterproof camera while out quadding in the mountains was very desirable.
Summary: Great product! Although I have other GPS, when hiking, this is the one. I have used it for street navigation but think that there are better GPS out there for this function. If I am traveling and planning on doing any hiking, this is a one of a kind performer and can do all the tasks necessary. Ken
Summary: Awhile back I wrote a review for a sister product and although I gave it a four star review it wasn't without its faults. On this later reiteration of the same line of products you would imagine that they would work on improving the the negatives to create a superior product.
Summary: I purchase too many toys! I begin with this because I hope to instill a sense of trust based on the ton of stuff I learn to use, adapt too and play with; from planes to scuba gear. That said, I will save us both some time here and ask you to review John Williamson's review, Jan 28, 2010.
I think the Triton is a better unit than the Garmin oregon450t

Summary: I have had the Triton 2000 for over 6 years. When I first purchased the unit, the satellite lock-in was not adequate. It would not track through any kind of cover. But Magellan came out with a software upgrade which resolved the tracking issues.
Summary: I've had this GPS for quite a while now and I hesitated in writing a review, hoping that maybe I missed something, or needed to download a patch or needed to do something! I really wanted to like this GPS, it looked so good on paper and I have a lot of respect for the Magellan brand.
Summary: I'm a past camper who has experienced the challenges of rain, water, and insufficient space in backpacks and appreciate a tough GPS. I did not experience the many software problems mentioned in other reviews, but didn't use it heavily either.
