Q&A on the New Magellan Triton Handheld GPS


Rich over at GPS Tracklog got in touch with Magellan about their new Magellan Triton handheld GPS units and asked a few questions about the new units and how they were going to work.

Recall the full-featured Triton units offer full-color, touch-screen controls and the ability to record and attach audio to waypoint files. Other features include a built-in 2MB pixel camera, digital compass, barometer and built-in LED flashlight. The Triton line is IPX-7 rated and water submersible.

As a result of the alliance between Magellan and National Geographic, the Triton series is the first outdoor handheld to offer users access to downloadable National Geographic topographic maps. This alliance with Magellan marks the first time that National Geographic maps will be made available on a handheld GPS device.

Has anyone asked about the ruggedness of the Triton's versus other handheld units such as the eXplorist series or the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx? It looks a bit cosmopolitan on the surface.

So where are they?

September's almost over and I see no Tritons in stores!

I've seen in the reviews that it takes an external antenna. What plug standard does it use?
