An embedded barometer tracks atmospheric pressure changes to give more accurate altitude readings and indicate changes in weather. An embedded LED flashlight helps you find your way at night.

Topo Maps

Incredible Map Versatility
Pre-loaded base maps and uploadable detail maps identify major roads, rivers, lakes, cities, and other geographical boundaries, and its SD card slot offers unlimited storage possibilities. Every Triton includes VantagePoint software to manage maps, view saved routes, and more.

Through an exclusive partnership with the National Geographic Society, Magellan Triton series devices are the first and only handheld GPS units configured to directly upload National Geographic’s award-winning TOPO! maps.
