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. Supposedly all I needed to do was connect it to my computer and update the software to the unit. The unit would not connect to my windows 7 computer for updating.

I was screwed

  • Summary: This SUCKS. It does not work with Apple computers, despite the fact that is says it does om the CD that comes with it. This is fraudulent. I bought is well in advance and put it away as a Christmas present for my son. aAfter Christmas, we tried to use it and just learned it does not work with Mac. I wasted 70 bucks on an eBay boat anchor.

Useless

S. Kajpust "magicalstephie", Amazon

  • Summary: I got this gps for Christmas 2009, and spent several hours trying to get it working. I'm a computer engineer, so it should be simple, right? Wrong. The first problem was that the basemap that it came with is useless. Only interstates are on the map, nothing else. Problem two: it says it is compatible with National Geographic TOPO but when I went to buy the TOPO for the Great Lakes, it said it was not compatible with my device.

  • Summary: I have owned several GPS, I was sucked into thie one by the claim on the National Geographic Map softwhere that this unit was the only one I could download the State USG map to. Some thirty hours later with stupid so called support from NGM and Magellan the unit sits on top of my dresser as a paper weight. I wish I had read a review before I bought this on e-bay for a hundred dollars.

Map better than this GPS

SemiOp, Amazon
10 June 2009
  • Summary: User interface is simple to move through, but I feel like I need to take a course on how to do simple things. Unfortunately the online user guide does little to answer my questions. For instance, I went on a 5 mile hike but by the end the triton said I had walked 11 miles?? Were these 11kms, no it said miles...

Look elsewhere - Poor user interface / Poor documentation

J. Thompson, Amazon
5 June 2009
  • Summary: First of all, I'm an experienced GPS user who has owned 5 other GPS systems including two others from Magellan. The Triton 300 was hands-down the worst to use. The user interface is poorly thought out and unintuitive which is really a problems since the user manual and on line documentation is nearly worthless. First off the unit (which I got for Christmas) had software that was buggy and some important features did not work.
