User Review: Magellan Triton 500
Price Paid: $248
Better than the 300. I purchased the map combo pack and it works well enough and the Canadian map series is very good. I can change maps from one section of Canada to another. The topo maps from National Geographic do not exist for Canada, which is too bad. The memory is adequate for the job and the processor works well.
The reason I did not give it 5 stars is the fact that some features in the programming can be a bit of a pain; the tech support, when needed, is poor (though they try hard, it's hard to get through); and the Vantage Point (VP) program should come on the accompanying CD. The manual is saveable pdf file which I like but others don't. The VP program itself is quite neat but maps can't always be saved to other units--though it may be just me.
All in all I am glad to have the machine the problems that my friend's unit (another slightly older 500) have been ironed out. This unit (500 Triton) I could recommend, not like the 300 Triton.
