OK for what I needed at a bargain price, but not UK programmed
15 June 2013
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. Be careful buying from outside the UK unless really cheap allow for Parcel Force to make an ouside of UK handling charge which can almost double the expected price.
I prefer the Garmin Etrex Legend H over the Magellan Triton 300
29 January 2012
Summary: I have owned and used a basic model Garmin Etrex for the last 10 years. I decided to try a newer model with a color display that could perform area calculation. I purchased a Magellan Triton 300. After updating it to the latest Operating System version from the Magellan website, it could then perform area calculation. I farm wheat and barley for a living and our family also goes horse camping riding mountain trails.
Summary: These models have only built-in memory (20 megabytes), but with a margin which would be enough to celebrate all you know about fish and mushroom places, shops, McDonalds and toilets (50000 points), to remember the way not only to the left in the forest machine, but and up to 50 travel the length of several hundreds or even thousands of kilometers.
Summary: You might suffer because the map area is small. Triton that can use the SD card is good first. When the base map is deleted, the map area is about 30MB. The image map necessary for the trekking of 2.3 days can be stored. Triton continues by eneloop for about 15 hours. The screen is dark. The backlight is too bright. However, Triton has SirfStarIII. It is a trekking guide that can be trusted.
Summary: I was trying to upgrade my Magellan Explorist 210 (a discontinued model) with the latest firmware on the website. I wiped out everything on the unit and basically ended up with a brick. I emailed Magellan and asked what could be done. They replied promptly within 12 hours and created a work order for the REPLACEMENT of this obsolete unit with NO WARRANTY.
