UPDATE: Read my Magellan Triton 1500 review.
GpsPasSion got some quality time with the upcoming Magellan Triton 2000 and has posted pictures for all to see. They are reporting exceptionally fast map scrolling and zooming, which may help account for the short (AA) battery life being reported. From the images, we can tell that the Tritons will use a Windows CE platform, opening the door to all sorts of user hacks. It also appears that the device may use an old style Magellan to USB connector, rather than a mini-USB.
My sources tell me we are now looking at an early to mid-November release date.
