Magellan is coming up with a nice bundle of new GPS devices, the Triton series, that will range from $129 to $499. The devices will be available in September in the USA and later in Europe.
Next to the fact that is is very nice to have new handheld GPS devices on the market, there is at least one question in my head now: “what about the maps?!“
I do not hear anything about it, except that the National Geographic maps will be supported:
MAGELLAN® FIRST TO BRING NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAPS TO HANDHELD GPS RECEIVERS
Full-Color Topographic Maps Compatible for the First Time with Handheld GPS – the New Triton™ Outdoor GPS from Magellan.

This is nice, but I do hear nothing about European and/or World coverage. There is a ‘new’(er) (DVD) version of Magellan’s own Direct Route software, version 3.0, for the USA. Europe has to stick with a old 2CD 2.0 version of a few years old.
The only thing people want is a nice device AND decent and recent maps, even in Europe and around the globe! But that’s only what I think…
