Not For Roads! Hiking, boating, geocaching, etc only

Summary: First off, know what you're getting. Many of the lowest ranking reviews are simply because the reviewer expected a GPS that would help them drive around the city or walk around town. This GPS is absolutely not for this purpose. Second thing you need to know, when you open the box, the thing is next to useless until you load some topographical maps (beyond the extremely basic one included) into it.
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. I don't have an iPhone, but I have seen friend's'iPhones and I know what they are capable of, and it was too bad that'this dedicated device didn't have similar capabilities. It also doesn't work as a car navigator.
