Magellan Meridian Color paperweight.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've done a few using my Android but really enjoyed using a GPSr. Maybe the ruggedness of the device? At any rate I dug out my Meridian color and thought I'd see if it was possible to update the maps...etc. Didn't have any luck calling Magallen direct and in fact was given another number which played a recording that and hangs up after giving you a web address for technical support...which also doesn't list my device. SO...I need to find it a home and start looking into what else is new and available or get into the habit of using my phone. It does have a bigger screen which is nice.  Any other Pros or cons?

Unless you live in Australia, Magellan has closed shop on its recreational handhelds. There's nothing wrong with using an Android phone. Some phones even connect to the GLONASS satellites in addition to GPS. 

 

I've been a fan of Geooh and GCDroid as alternative apps to the official app. Geooh even has a built in Wherigo player. 

 

But if you do find yourself pining for a standalone GPS receiver, you're nearly limited to a Garmin.

Thank you for replying! I greatly appreciate it and think I'll just stick with my phone.
