Review: Garmin Colorado 400t

Wired
27 June 2008
  • Excerpt: The name “Garmin” is synonymous with “GPS,” the way “Q-Tip” is synonymous with “auditory hygiene.” And the Colorado 400t doesn’t let us down: Its light, curved form fits easily in your palm. Navigating the great-looking interface one-handed feels easy with the help of a soft click-wheel.
  • Pros: Unbeatable form factor. Click-wheel makes navigation more than effortless. Included carabineer means accidental drops are a rare occurrence. Preloaded topo maps preprogrammed with local haunts we’re predisposed to frequenting. For free. Preposterous!
  • Cons: Use that ‘biner — a drop of about 2 feet killed the power. Dig out your spare PC, as Mac software is lacking. Despite that road-lock feature, an average of 18-20 foot accuracy makes it disorienting and dangerous to use while driving.

  • 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.
