Magellan's SporTrak Color GPS gives you all the great advantages of GPS navigation in one rugged, compact, lightweight, and full-color device.

The unit shows your position to within three meters, even in difficult environments such as cities or mountains.



Navigate with ease using the SporTrak Color's intuitive controls.
Built to be both intuitive and easy-to-use, the SporTrak Color lets you rest assured knowing that all its major functions are described in step-by-step instructions built right into the unit. Start navigating right away with its 10 MB built-in mapping database of North America, which includes highways, major roads, parks, waterways, airports, cities, and marine navigation aids such as buoys, beacons, lights, and other items. You can expand your mapping capabilities by uploading detailed maps from optional Magellan MapSend software (up to an additional 22 MB for North America).

Store up to 20 routes, 500 waypoints and 2,000 track-points to easily find your way back again. The Save Track-to-Route feature lets you convert complicated track files into easy-to-follow routes. Save hundreds of routes by transferring them to a PC using the optional MapSend software.

Nine customizable graphic navigation screens include a map, compass, and speedometer with text readouts of heading, bearing, speed, direction, and ETA, among others. Choose from 12 built-in coordinate systems and 76 datums, including Latitude/Longitude, Universal Transverse Mercator, and Military Grid Reference System.

Built with rubber-armored, impact-resistant plastic, the unit nevertheless weighs in at a mere 6.8 ounces, keeping it compact and light enough to slip into your pocket and accompany you wherever your road leads. Further, the water-resistant SporTrak Color is sealed to IEC-529 IPX7 specifications--and it even floats.

The SporTrak Color uses WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) and the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) to provide the maximum GPS accuracy and reliability available. A built-in barometer helps you forecast the weather, while an innovative three-axis compass offers superior navigational accuracy no matter how you hold it.

Other features include the ability to show when the sun will rise and set and the phase of the moon for any date and location in the world. Want to know when the fish are likely to be biting in your corner of the world? The SporTrak Color tells you that, too. It can also monitor the GPS satellites in view and get information about their status.

If you speak English, French, German, Swedish, Finnish, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Norwegian, or Dutch, you're in luck--so does the Magellan SporTrak Color. A pair of AA batteries powers the device for up to 14 hours of continuous use.

  • 5 starsSuper GPS

    This is the first GPS I have bought. What a steal at $229.00 on amazon.com. It was very easy to use once you are familiar with the interface. I didn't really need the handbook to figure most things out. I highly recommend it.

    I needed to find an address to a birthday party in a city that I wasn't familiar with. I typed in the street name via "gaming genre" A-Z list. The 1st street on the list of many streets in many different cities was the one I was looking for. Listed by closest destination, I guess. Anyway I pushed enter & it drew a route for me. I also entered the address. I decided to take a different (freeway) route which is longer than the suggested route. Since I disregarded the 1st turn, the turn instruction display stayed there throughout the entire trip until I reached the target street. At which point it guided me to the right address on the street with the highlighted route line. Anyhoo, I did not need directions to get to the general area of this city. I just needed details, which the unit provided perfectly.

    The cursor moves diagonally too, though not marked.

    I have no experience with any other GPS systems. I can only say, as a novice, that I love Sportrak Color!

    $229 is a steal. Get one!

    I purchased the Sportrak Color from Amazon for $229. My local retail stores listed it at $349-$499. The reviewer that stated that the this unit is hard to use and is non-intuitive gave me great pause before purchasing it. With such a great price vs. all other listings, I went for it anyway. I'm very pleased with the system. As a complete GPS novice and as a test of the systems ease of use, I did not read the instruction manual. I only turned to the page that identified the functionality of each button. Anyone who has ever used a computer or played a video game can operate this unit intuitively.

    I also purchased the MapSend Direct route software. I uploaded most of Michigan on it and started browsing streets in my general area that would require several turns to reach. I put the cursor on a street and pushed the GOTO button. It instantly asked me if I would like to go there. Neat, huh? I used the unit in my vehicle, laying it down in the center console. It guided me to the street with audible prompts, visual direction arrows, and street names to turn at.

    I don't claim to know anything about GPS, but I love it.

    I intend to use it for street directions and fishing spots.

    It has a compass, barometer, altimeter, Color disply, and is VERY easy to use.
