User Review: Magellan Triton 400
Price Paid: $99
I bought my Triton 400 from Wal-Mart in March of 2010. The first one was defective. I took it back and exchanged it for the last one they had in stock, which had been opened by someone. (Probably returned and they just put it back on the shelf to be sold again.) It was defective also.
Both units functioned as far as to power up and acquire the satellites and give a position reading, but few of the other functions worked the way the instructions said they were supposed to. The native "map" included in the Triton was worthless. It had no detail except major highways. I tried connecting it to the Magellan website to update the software, and the software wouldn't ever work. I gave up and chucked it into a corner until today, 10/19/2011.
Magellan has updated their software several times so I thought I'd give it one more try. Well, after updating everything on the computer, I connected the Triton to the USB port and fired it up. I heard the beep-bop from the computer, but the Sync icons in VantagePoint remained greyed out and the screen on the Triton just sat there saying Waiting to Connect...and waiting...and waiting—forever. Still a POC.
Save yourself a huge headache and loss of precious funds and go buy another brand.
