Excerpt: Take on the trails with Colorado 400t. This rugged, advanced handheld is packed with detailed topographic maps for all your hiking adventures not to mention 3-D map view, a high-sensitivity receiver, barometric altimeter, electronic compass, SDâ„¢ card slot, picture viewer and color display. Exchange tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches wirelessly between similar units. When the going gets tough, Colorado leads the way.
Summary: Overall I think the Garmin Colorado 400t is a big jump in quality of experience over the eTrex C series and even the GPSMap 60CSx units. I say that for numerous reasons, and acknowledging that the Colorado series costs a lot more, I still think it's a pretty darn good device for the money. Actually, I can say that I liked it so much that bought a new Colorado 400t for myself.
