User Review: Magellan Triton 500
Source: received it as a personal gift
I received this unit two years ago for a birthday gift due to that I have to have one for K9 Search and Rescue. I have not had a problem with this unit and it puts me right on track. Magellan puts out the perfect GPS for all ages and uses. I will continue to use Magellan GPS and their products.
- Can use for different types of hikes and geocaching Is right on target
- Small and easy to use
- Has some topo maps
- Great for beginners
- The battery life is lower than expected
- Does not have a camera which I would like to download to the computer
- Easy to handle and work for all ages.
- It is not waterproof so if you get it wet in the elements you are in trouble.
I would buy this again but knowing that their is a camera on other models and water resistance I would probably go with another Magellan now that I learned to use a gps on the 500. It's a great learning gps that walks you through easy instructions. Great for geocaching, but with Search and Rescue I need to update my gps.
I highly recommend the Magellan 500.
