Triton series

The Magellan Triton series of devices looks like it has potential. Details seem to be lacking a bit [as of April 2009], but, for example, the Triton 2000 is said to have the following features:

  • 2.7-inch colour touch screen
  • 2 megapixel camera with location tagging of photos
  • Voice recorder allowing audio to be attached to waypoints
  • SD card memory
  • 3-axis electronic compass
  • Barometer
  • SiRFstarIII chip set

That seems to be a good mix of features; if it has some decent tracking options to go with them and generally good performance, this could rival the new Garmin GPSMAP 60Csx.
