Excerpt: I did not realize that you could not charge the GPS. I can only get one day out of the batteries. I am now going to try lithium batteries that are rechargeable, but overall I do not like the issue with this GPS. I would not purchase another one, and would not recommend it to anyone.
Excerpt: I enjoyed having something that could tell me distance to the hazards and green, but for $160.00 I feel the unit should have more features available, like being able to view the scorecard at the end of your game. Instead, You have to page through each hole individually.
Excerpt: Great value has a lot of courses. I checked it with other GPS on vacation this week and it was close to what the cart GPS was with in a yard. You have to change the batteries after 4 rounds so carry extra or buy the rechargeable ones.
Excerpt: Purchased this GPS for the sake of correct yardage. My main course has inconsistant yardage stakes. This GPS is more accurate. When playing in a shot gun start you do have to back arrow back to the 1st hole once you reach the 18 hole and have to finish the round. The GPS doesn't recognize that you have unfinished holes while having started on the 6th and after getting to 18 and have to finish 1 thru 5. Just a minor problem but I like the unit.
Very good design, rugged, easy to use, and provides a lot of information

Summary: Very nice and handy device. Seems accurate and is built rugged. Garmin reccomends using NIMH rechargable batteries and I have found that I have no problem with battery life using them. Display quality is good with color and the zoom feature is great especially on approaches to the green since you can move the flagstick around.Touchscreen is adequately sensitive but wish it had buttons for some functions because icons are small on screen.Plenty of info on hazards and...
