Magellen Triton 300, refurbished not the best BUY

fseeley, Ebay
5 May 2013
  • 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it included software to run the unit that was many years ancient; and the mapping software including functions were way out of date.

Needs some work

  • Summary: This GPS is great if you are using it all the time. However if you don't touch the screen every few minutes it shuts off. With no power adapter you cant use it for long with out touching it. Also it has a hard time calculating distance.

  • Excerpt: Since none of the reputable tech sites have decided to review the Magellan Triton series, I will take the task upon myself. I found no good information on Tritons before purchasing one, so I hope to arm you with the information you need to make a wise decision before purchasing.
