Basic GPS... and that's about it

M. Chesner, Amazon
28 March 2009
  • Summary: I picked up this GPS for use on my bicycling trips on road and on local trails. I am not demanding on my bike GPS, and essentially use it as a bicycle computer that tracks distance, pace, etc. while giving me the bonus of an idea where I am (since I have NO innate sense of direction).

Mapping software is expired

Craig Travis, Amazon
28 March 2009
  • Summary: The GPS is actually a pretty nice piece of equipment- once you go online and download all the updates for it. The problem I have was I ordered the package deal with mapping software. Nat Geo maps no longer exists and I had a bunch of credits for map purchasing that I could no longer renew.

I had hoped that this would be a good, easy to use, entry level GPS. Not so much.

Timothy B. Riley, Amazon

  • Summary: I own many GPS units and I use them in many of my hobbies, especially geocaching. I am always on the lookout for an entry level unit to recommend to those who are interested in taking up the hobby. In the past I have been telling people that low-end Garmins are the way to go.

Wouldn't recommend

dephal, Amazon

  • Summary: I have to admit, I didn't use this Triton as it was intended, that is, while hiking. Instead, I tried it out on a cross-country car trip. On the plus side, it looks good and rugged, and the ability to download maps is great. However, it had many minuses.

Lots of potential, but falls short

Carrie "Kindle Lover", Amazon
6 January 2009
  • Summary: All the other reviewers comments are valid, the software is difficult to use, the GPSr itself is difficult to use, and there are a lot of shutdowns and "outdoornav.exe" errors. The base map is extremely basic. The Nat Geo Topo! maps look great on here, but I couldn't find any other maps that worked.

Get lost, Triton 400

P. K. Bellville, Amazon
6 January 2009
  • Summary: I agree with the other reviewers except I haven't experienced software crashes yet. Let me list the ways I hate thee, Triton 400: Very poor customer support, nearly non-existent. Odometer inaccurate as stated by others. It can be off by 20% or more.
