Summary: I have never owned another GPS but this one works for me. Not the most user friendly and the buttons are too small IMO but Ive never had any of the issues with locking up Ive seen others mention.The base map sux but if you pay the $30 to Magellan for the year of satellite/Arial maps its pretty...

Summary: I originally had the lockup on anything and everything problem, but that got fixed with a firmware update. This is not the most user friendly device I have seen, I like to save trails for off-roading. The TOPO software that ships with it is usefull but doesn't seem 100% compatable with the device.
Summary: In the interest of full disclosure, I must let all readers know that I use my handheld GPSr for geocaching, and my GPSr of choice is a Garmin. There. I said it. In the geocaching world, I'm one half of the team called "Trekkin' and Birdin'.
Not For Roads! Hiking, boating, geocaching, etc only

Summary: I have a Garmin e-trex GPS as a backup for my sailboat navigation system so my use of handheld systems has been limited to marine use only. At first I thought this Magellan Trinton 400 system would be a good handheld for marine use. Then I changed my mind. 1. Yes, this 400 is in color...
Summary: The first thing to know about the "Magellan Triton 400 Handheld'Navigation System" is that it is strictly a hiking GPS. There are no'street maps, and it won't plot any courses for you if you are planning'on taking a trip.
