No way on the Triton, but is the Explorist 500 LE any good?

For the longest time I hated it because loading caches on it was confusing and annoying... Now that I have finally started using gsak, it is super quick and easy.
Accuracy wise, it works just as good as my blackberry curve, which has always been by best friend.
It is pretty simple to use once you have it all set up.
It suns on 3 AAA batteries, or you can purchase a rechargable one.
Does not come with detailed maps... But I do have them to borrow if need be...

For the price I'd say it was worth the unit as a starter... But I don't think I personally would upgrade to it...

For me, it has paid for itself, the number of times I have accidently dipped it in the lake! Lol!
