Summary: I actually like the unit... What I need, was an advanced digital compass, and that is exactly what this does. This is not a top tier unit, but does offer flexibility with the Nat Geo Topo maps.
Summary: I have owned this unit for a long time and the Topo! software for California as well. I do have the updated firmware for both the gps unit and the Vantagepoint software . I don't work for Magellan nor National Geographic. I link the unit to computers using xp and vista.
OK for what I needed at a bargain price, but not UK programmed

Summary: This is a good product but not for the UK market as there is no built in maps for hiking in the uk or coastal maps. I bought it as a back up for my boat gps as it shows lat/long and compass direction plus speed so in that mode it was all I needed.
Summary: I am not sure if the seller was aware of this so I am not judging; however the GPS I received from him was factory repaired and it included software to run the unit that was many years ancient; and the mapping software including functions were way out of date.
It cost me $7 to return this product twice, the 2nd time being finale.

Summary: I previously owned a Magellan Blazer 12 GPS for about 14 years that worked fantastic and still does. I wanted to upgrade to the Magellan Triton 300 and was sorely disappointed. The GPS would get a location fix, but would not set the date and time.
Summary: I am a member of a K-9 search and rescue team and we use GPS devices a lot. This one for the money is just as good as the higher priced ones. The only problem I have is and it is just my own personal preference is it would be better with topo maps.
Summary: It was ok, can't seem to get it downloaded for the maps..so don't really have much use for it..tried for hours to download the maps,with no success...I would like to return it,but I have lost the receipt...
