Magellan Triton 400 On-Mountain
We had a chance to take our new Magellan out at this week, and were impressed.

The unit is a little bulky, but we found it slipped in and out of a ski jacket pocket ok, and has a convenient lanyard attachment point (essential in our experience handling expensive electronics on chairlifts!). GPS signal acquisition was fast, and held a signal better within lodges than other units we had with us.

We inserted the maps on SD card, and they were immediately recognized and displayed, and looked very good on the bright screen.

Battery life was good, indeed we got two days use out of a set of freshly charged 2200mAH NiMh batteries. Those weren't "first chair to last chair" days due to the weather, but we did seem to exceed the 10 hours stated battery life.

The only real problem we found in this test was the buttons and control pad are a little small and hard to operate with thicker ski gloves on, but they are well spaced, which helps
