+Bitterseed Posted April 24, 2010 Share Posted April 24, 2010 Looking forward to trying this unit. This unit may put Magellan back in the GPS business if the performance is good. I do not understand multi-directional patch? Hopefully, it will work well under cover. 18hrs of battery and a transreflective screen are good points. Intuitive menus for geocaching will also be a great feature. Need to address maps, the Accu-Terra line up and installation via Vantage point is not good. I think the biggest impact will be on competitors DeLorme - Why so long to get the PN60/W to market? This puts pressure on their higher priced new models. Also, this may enccourage Delorme to offer V2.8 update for the standard PN40 w/o having to update to TOPO9! The new GPS does not appear to have a battery life flaw if the 18 hrs stands up to usage. Garmin- Puts pressure on their high priced line-up! I predict we'll see 400t heavily discounted. Not sure about product placement for Dakota...Never understood the market for that GPS. The Oregon 200, 300 will be less attractive to sell. The new GPS if the specs are right does not have the fatal sun-light visibility problem associated with all Garmin GPS's since the 400t. Magellan - I would like to see their next series of offerings along the same line as this new GPS w/ additional features. Maps Maps Maps hello Peoria Bill, Peoria Bill lives across the river from me. We have not meet yet but I hope we will cross paths soon. I have ordered this new megellan and cant wait to see how well it will perform. It will replace a Magellan 315 i had 9yrs.
