Poll: Which do you own? Magellen or Garmin


Recommended Posts

I've worked at a local Sport Chalet store where both Garmin and Magellan were sold and my decision came down to the Magellan Meridian or the Garmin E-trex Vista. After going over all the pros and cons of both units I wound up getting a Magellan Meridian. For the following reasons:

1) Bigger screen

2) Upgradable memory (I bought 128mb secured dgital card for $50)

3) Well protected LCD display

4) All the buttons are at the bottom of the unit which is great for either right handed or left handed people. Your fingers never cover the screen.

5) Price. I bought mine for $99

6) More powerful Quadrifilar Antenna


I think thats about it. I'm new to the GPS and still need to figure out how to be a little more proficiant at using it. My girlfriend and I have been putting this unit to use since we have found out about Geo Caching.
