Quite honestly I am a long time Magellan fan . . . but I am rather disappointed with their latest offerings.
As a cacher and outdoor enthusiast I want my GPSr to do one thing and do it well . . . to tell me where I am and where I need to go . . . OK, so maybe that's two things.
I am not a big fan of multi tools whether it be a Swiss army knife, Leatherman or what have you . . . in general I find that some things on multi tools work OK, but often the single tool works better (i.e. a screwdriver almost always works better than the screwdriver on a Leatherman or Swiss army knife.)
I think the idea of piling a whole bunch of stuff on to the Triton was unnecessary and ridiculous . . . OK, maybe I could buy into the idea of being able to record a message when I found a cache . . . maybe that would be convenient . . . and maybe, just maybe the LED flashlight might be useful for finding night caches . . . but a MP3 player . . . can't say as I have ever needed to have my own theme music playing while searching for a cache.
No, I am quite happy with my older Explorist210 and Meridian units . . . they do one thing and do it quite well (usually) . . . and usually when I can't find a cache or list the wrong coords for a hidden cache it's the operator's fault and not the unit.
Honestly, if I was to buy or recommend a GPSr unit right now, and someone had enough money to splurge, I would recommend the Garmin Oregon . . . very easy to use, excellent maps and even a long time Magellan user was able to figure out how to use it, navigate, search for caches, etc. within 5 or so minutes . . . which is saying something. However, truthfully, my older GPSrs work fine, and so for now I'll continue using them . . . along with a small notebook and pen for notes, a small flashlight in my pocket for night caches and I'll just go caching with Hiram for the "in flight" entertainment . . . word is . . . he is pretty good at singing most of Faith Hill's songs.
