    I'm looking to get a new gps but don't want to spend a lot on a color one or anything. i mean color would be nice but i mainly just want the simple functions of marking spots and getting form point A to point B. Pretty much just for hunting and fishing. I went to but the garmin e treck (or whatever its called) for $100 but right next to it at walmart was a Magellan Triton 400 on sale for $100 (normally $200). It has a color screen was the only main difference i saw.

    Anyone had any experiences with Magellan GPS's? Pros, cons? from what i hear they've around a while but my buddy said he couldn't see if it had the option to put in numbers to find waypoints. I don't know, lookin for some advice.

    if you want something simple to operate then stay away from magellan products, you will not a find a unit more easy to use than a garmin.

    garmin all the way baby.
