Magellan TRX App Trial
not sure who has seen this app or device yet

I see all the discussions about the Gaia app & thought I'd try something else
I'd like the actual Magellan TRX gps, but really dont want to spend the $$$ for another toy, since I already have 3 GPS's that are collecting dust
you can download this through the google playstore, you know how to do that

install app and proceed

agree to the end user license agreement


it downloads , this part might take a couple of minutes


register for a new account


go to settings and enable your GPS function, set up twitter or Instagram forwarding if so desired too
you can chose to select the tracking feature too, this allows you to share your trails, road trips etc with friends
& then select got to map


sadly the map is a road map, unless you pay to upgrade & download usgs topo maps
I only turned on my GPS function without any data or wireless connection & it found my location


I stopped here and had to question whether I would actually use this or would it be a novelty item before buying the updated topo maps etc

please report your findings , opinions etc
