Summary: It is important to understand exactly what this device does and does not do. It works well for its designed purpose, but that may or may not be enough depending on what you are looking for. First, it does NOT display maps or show you where you are the way an automobile GPS would do.
Summary: Let me begin by saying that over the years I've owned a dozen or so Garmin GPS units and used them in aviation, hiking, and cycling capacities and found them, with few exceptions, to be excellent.
Summary: First, while 'fewer' buttons is most of the time a 'good' thing, in this case the FEW buttons that are on there share too many functions...making it confusing and requiring constant manual refference until you get used to what the only four buttons on the unit do!
GPS that is not as confusing as it used to be; App is Great!!

Summary: I bought one, used it to get back to my truck after hunting turkey and if I could post a picture, I'd show you how it marked my truck all the way to the driver side door. I also use the very easy to install and understand app, then blew away my friends when I emailed them a picture of my tracks laid...
Summary: I like this product I bought the first version and have found it very useful. When I travel to large city and want to just wander around this gets me back to the Hotel or car. It's also great for marking the car in a mall parking lot etc.
Summary: Pros: *It's best for recording (or geo-caching) trips *Easy enough for any one to figure out how to use it *Battery life (lasts really long with any AAA batteries) *Large and clear LED backlit display *Has built in digital compass Cons: *Software- No options for putting in your co-ordinates,...
Summary: Marked my hotel location upon checking in. Rode the various trains and subways throughout Tokyo and was amazed how close (walking distance) most attractions were to my hotel. All I did was open the "distance to (hotel)" window and it showed distance and direction.
Summary: Horrible product, I tested in the city and it is decently accurate when it works. On my last hunting trip it never caught a satellite so I was lost because I relied on this thing, luckily I don't completely rely on cheap technology and had a topo map with me so I was only lost for a few hours.
