Summary: This is a awesome GPS once you are able to put the Topo maps on it. I had a 1500 and lost it, and now have the 2000. Both are great and are rugged. The forums on the internet will help guide you through the install, otherwise it can be tough. I'd recommend this GPS.
Summary: Because the 100$ was less expensive than other ones for the reason that it was bought. A product is strong and has a big screen, and it's also easy to look at the character. Latitude and slightness are also indicated right. I'm Japanese, so an English manual is attached, but English isn't understood, so it can't be established. When there is HP which has indicated a manual on HP, please tell me. Then because it can be translated.
Summary: My wife and I are avid GPS users. We have a Garmin nüvi 750, which we love. We also have a GPS function in both of our phones (Samsung and Blackberry). The GPS units we have and use are street-level GPS units. They do not function in the least "off road." So, needless to say, this product functions entirely differently than the ones we are used to.

Summary: Today, GPS units are a dime a dozen. Most of them do exactly what you want. You enter an address, hit go, and you get your directions. So how do you separate yourself from the pack? You create a unit such as the Magellan Triton 2000 Handheld Navigation System. This GPS is simply amazing. From the quick start-up times to the great extra features, including geotagging, being waterproof, and topography.

Summary: As a hand held GPS the Triton 2000 is on par with most hand held units of similar price. There is little to complain about as it accurately performed all functions as expected. What makes this GPS stand out above the rest are the value added features not found on most of its competitors. For this reason I have focused this review on these features.
Summary: It is obvious from reading earlier reviews that the Triton 2000 had many problems. I am happy to report that I have not experienced the multitude of problems earlier reviewers (mostly in 2008) did. Obviously the Triton 2000 was put out too quickly. Now there have been several firmware updates and I have found that this is a pretty good handheld GPS. I can't think of one feature I would like to have that the Triton does not already offer.
Understand this purchase almost requires the purchase of TOPO! Maps

Summary: This unit out of the box is a 3 star product, but if you purchase it realizing you will also be purchasing the TOPO! maps for more money, then it instantly becomes a solid 4 star unit. While most of the reviews have covered everything well, I figured I would summarize them as well as put my spin on the device with version 1.71 software. Hardware The unit is everything you would want for the most part. + The screen is very clear and bright.
Summary: I bought and have been using this GPS unit for the last 3 weeks. Initially I used it for on trail hikes to get used to the unit and make sure it was tracking well. Then I used it for two off trail hikes - one two day backpack with a pre-planned route and one day hike where I was recording a new route. The device has many modes and capabilities but I have only used the device for hiking so my review relates only to use for hiking. Likes: Excellent GPS for hiking.
