MagellanHandheld GPS from Magellan : Magellan, a leading global innovator of outdoor and vehicle navigation solutions, announced today the introduction of its new Triton series of portable handheld GPS receivers that provide outdoor enthusiasts with the most advanced design and navigation experience available. The Triton series of six new units is the first line of rugged, handheld navigation devices designed with a new user interface flow and screen graphics making Triton easier to use and more accessible to a greater population of outdoor enthusiasts. The Triton series is significantly easier to use than previous versions of any outdoor GPS device, creating new opportunities to reach people who enjoy outdoor activities.

The full-featured Triton units offer full-color, touch-screen controls and the ability to record and attach audio to waypoint files. Other features unique to Triton include a built-in 2MP pixel camera, digital compass, barometer and built-in LED flashlight. All of these features are elegantly integrated and designed to create an overall experience not found in any handheld GPS today. IPX-7 rated and water submersible, the Triton series delivers ruggedness required by even the most demanding outdoor enthusiast.

Magellan and National Geographic
As a result of an 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.

Magellan handheld GPS - VantagePoint
Additionally, Triton is the first Magellan handheld GPS to feature the new, free map and content management application, VantagePoint, which enables users to easily upgrade and share information to and from their Magellan units. VantagePoint will allow Triton users to download additional maps onto their devices, as well as upload stored treks, waypoints and other recorded media.

National Geographic Maps
Magellan Triton is the first device to offer full, onscreen compatibility, usage and display of National Geographic’s maps. National Geographic offers its 28 titles of TOPO! outdoor recreation mapping software titles (covering all 50 states), which include five layers of maps – from National Geographic Atlas maps to the most detailed U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic maps. In addition, Triton is the first handheld GPS that allows adventurers to download maps and waypoints from TOPO! and from National Geographic’s new Weekend Explorer 3D, which includes 21 titles for major urban centers and surrounding recreational areas. Users can now have Magellan’s topographic maps and National Geographic maps layered on one device for a complete best-in-class mapping experience.

VantagePoint GPS experience
VantagePoint from Magellan is the first desktop application that lets people manage and expand their GPS experience. This powerful, free tool lets users easily upgrade and share information to and from their Magellan units. VantagePoint will enable the Triton user to download additional maps onto their Tritons, as well as upload stored tracks, waypoints and other media information.

Triton GPS handheld receivers
“The new Triton series of handheld receivers was designed to bring handheld GPS to a new and expanded audience with the kind of experience our team of outdoor enthusiasts have dreamed of - a rugged GPS navigation device with a full-color touch screen, friendly user interface, built-in camera and media recorder to capture visited locations, and for the first time ever, access to National Geographic maps on a handheld device,” said Stig Pedersen, senior director of marketing for Magellan. “The Triton is the ideal backpack or tackle box companion for hikers and backpackers, hunters and fishermen, boaters, and geocachers. With access to free, downloadable VantagePoint software to sync together additional maps and multimedia applications, the Triton devices are the easiest and most versatile outdoor navigation solutions available.”

National Park Foundation
The penetration of GPS devices in the core outdoor segments of backpacking, hiking and hunting remains at relatively low level of about 5 percent. With its improved ease-of-use, increased feature set and multi-media capabilities, Magellan Triton is aimed at increasing market penetration. Magellan will be donating a portion of the proceeds from Triton sales through December 31, 2007, to the National Park Foundation to assist in its efforts to help sustain the conservation, preservation and enjoyment of America’s national treasures. Additionally, Magellan will be donating 500 new Triton units to the National Park Foundation to use as needed to support its programs.
