It is what it is

river rafter, Amazon

  • Summary: Ok, So I am a river guide in Oregon and I also hunt a lot. I needed a GPS that would be waterproof and able to be accurate, rugged and functional with accurate mapping. This fits the bill. There are however, problems. I smartly went to an after-market provider to get maps via the SD card.

  • Summary: Have had this for quite some time. Not very accurate for geocaching and it eats batteries. A set of batteries only lasts one outing, if that.

Good solid unit

  • Summary: I've owned my 500 now for almost 4 years and am still happy with it. I've read all the horror stories here and am not sure what half of them are talking about. Mine came with a USA topo map that I had to install online.

A good starter GPS

  • Summary: I purchased this with a gift card and did not have high hopes for the price but was surprised by its features.It makes a great beginner GPS and also has GeoCache capabilities. Its water proof up to 3M and feels solid in your hand. I also use the altimeter feature quite a bit which is nice.

Magellan GPS

P. Sandhofer, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: The Magellan Triton 500 GPS contained corroded double A batteries. There was minor damage to the GPS at the contact points of the battery that were able to be cleaned. In the future, removal of the batteries should be the practice.

7 August 2013
  • Summary: Bought this unit refurbished after reading about twenty reviews but was a little leery of what to expect. Have been working with the Triton 500 for about a week and after some want to send it back moments I got the feel of it. Very strong reception at all locations I have been.
