Summary: Within 1 hour of opening the packaging to set up the device, the "up" cursor on the central control panel broke, rending the device unnavigable and thus unusable. Hopefully the exchange device will be better constructed, as this model came highly recommended.
Don't waste your money - it stops working at some point
Sangmin Lee, Amazon
9 September 2010
Summary: I bought it about a year ago and used it several time. It was convenient and usefull. And one day, it simply stopped. It says internal error and turned off. No way to fix or reset. I called the service center and just confirmed there is no way to fix it.
Summary: I received this new unit as a gift and it worked fine for 35 days. Then an "internal error" message started to pop up and close down the unit. I had to send the unit back and am waiting for a replacement. When the system worked it worked fine.
Summary: I ordered this GPS because I thought it would be useful for outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and maybe for emergency use in the car. After two weeks of struggling with it, I think I'm ready to give up.
Summary: This is not my first handheld GPS unit. We currently own the Garmin eTrex Legend CX Color Mapping Handheld GPS to mark waypoints for the hot fishing spots on our lake. We thought it would be great to have another GPS so we can each carry one and go our separate ways.
Summary: I bought this at a very good price since it was mismarked and they sold it at the price on the package. I spent 1 day trying to get the NG Topo maps loaded with no success and took forever to connect it to the PC.
I purchased the Triton 500 prior to going on vacation…

Excerpt: I purchased the Triton 500 prior to going on vacation in Kauai, HI. I wanted to go hiking on some of the many trails. After I purchased it, I found out that it had no topos pre-loaded. Why would one buy a handheld GPS without topos?
