Great GPS once Topo maps are installed

fitzer7676, Ebay

  • 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.

Magellan Triton 2000 GPS

onbakura832, Ebay
2 October 2010
  • 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.

Magellan leaves its cutomers in the lurch- Do not buy this device

Paul, Amazon
19 November 2009
  • Summary: The Magellan Triton is an OK GPS, but it is nearly impossible to download or upload data to it. VantagePoint is just terrible, and won't even run anymore after an "upgrade" was installed. It crashes every single time before anything can be transferred. You pretty much have to rely on National Geographic Topo to interact with the Triton. What happens if NG stops supporting TOPO, which seems likely considering the free alternatives that are becoming available online.

It works

R. McAdams, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • 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.

Perfect GPS For The Outdoors!

Nathan M. Rose "Movie Guy from FlickDirect", Amazon
15 September 2009
  • 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.

Perfect Gift for the Deer Hunter Who Has Everything

Score Event "TimeTraveler", Amazon
9 September 2009
  • 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.

An Improved Triton 2000

Nor'easter, Amazon
30 August 2009
  • 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

William Hardin, Amazon
27 August 2009
  • 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.
