Summary: For geocaching: The information I was given said this would be compatible with a Mac to send caches to the GPS unit. It is not. Only Xplorist is compatible for this. Unfortunately, I bought this used and cannot return it. At first, I was able to input caches by hand, which takes forever. But then soon after, even with new batteries, the unit would not turn on unless I had it plugged into the computer's USB port.
Summary: I got this for Christmas 2012. Needed a firmware upgrade to actually work. Now every time I plug the USB cable in to either of 2 windows 7, 32 bit, 2 way, 2 gig Ram systems the GPS causes a blue screen of death where the core says Magellan stepped on memory. Sent an email to support. They asked me first to try the unit on another PC with a different operating system. Not gonna happen. I don't stock multiple PCs or operating systems. I'm a home user.
Very disatisfied with customer service from Magellan
11 January 2013
Summary: We have no problem what so ever with City Electronics. We ordered on 11/26/12, received it on 11/30/12, very fast shipper. And the problems began. While trying to load Vantage Point, our flatscreen went crazy and the computer crashed. Fortunately we had back up and 24 hours later tried again with the same results.
Summary: This expensive GPS was supposed to be new and not refurbished, but the battery compartment was corroded with battery acid and after replacing the supposedly new batteries, we found the spring on the negative side was broken off. The unit only stays on for a few seconds and turns itself off.
Summary: Don't buy this if you want to use it on the water. It is apparently not compatible with the nautical charts offered by Magellan and they don't respond to any inquiries as to what will work. My experience tells me not to buy any Magellan products for their lack of support and false advertising.
I bought my Triton 400 from Wal-Mart in March of 2010.

Excerpt: I bought my Triton 400 from Wal-Mart in March of 2010. The first one was defective. I took it back and exchanged it for the last one they had in stock, which had been opened by someone. (Probably returned and they just put it back on the shelf to be sold again.) It was defective also.
Summary: My Triton 400 was adequate when I bought it: not much of a database, not much of a display, but it did the basic GPS functions and that's all I asked. It crashed every once in a while, but would reboot OK. After a few months it went completely dead: blank screen, unresponsive to any inputs or any attempts to reset, by key or by USB control. Magellan was no help. I suggest you save your money and look elsewhere for a GPS.
