UPDATE: Read my more detailed preview of the entire Magellan Triton lineup.
UPDATE: Read my Magellan Triton 1500 review.
Magellan has just announced a new handheld GPS line, the Triton series. The top of the line Magellan Triton 2000 incorporates a color touch-screen, 2 megapixel camera, LED flashlight, tri-axial compass, SiRFstar III chipset, electronic compass, altimeter, microphone, speaker, and the ability to upload National Geographic TOPO! maps.
It appears from the latter that the unit will be able to handle raster imagery. The Magellan spec sheet says it is "compatible with a large range of Magellan and third-party maps," so maybe they will open the door to other providers and the use of aerial photos.
The Triton 2000, retailing for $499, is expected to be available in North America in September and in Europe in October.
Other units in the series include the following:
- Triton 1500
- Triton 500
- Triton 400
- Triton 300
- Triton 200
I'll be posting more details as soon as possible.
