Summary: I loved this garmin and used it all the time when out geocaching! Unfortunately, I was out on the fast river in my kayak and a tree limb took me out. My garmin went down the river never to be seen again! I was so upset!! Tried for hours to find it but the water was just too fast.

Summary: I bought this for my time out in Iraq. The unit has a large screen with excellent resolution, the case is sturdy and feels very strong. The rock-and-roller controller is a great addition, allowing you to move between menus without having to click through them.
Summary: My Colorado t-400 GPS is not well designed & dependable for remote back country use. Its "rock & roll wheel" cover fell off in the woods & left it and its many options useless. The display is not very readable, especially in the rain or in darker conditions.

Now I settled for one that floats. It your not boating this is a great unit. If your boating better keep it dry.
Summary: I have been doing a lot of back-country hiking the past several years, and last year, after doing some research, bought a Garmin Colorado 400t. (Apparently the newer Montana's screen is not readable in direct sunlight, which is a complete showstopper.
Colorado 400t is just not as nice as what some of the reviews here say

Summary: My wife got me this a couple weeks back (after I emailed her a tip that I wanted it) and I've been using it every chance I get. Unfortunately, like quite a few others (read ALL of the reviews both here and in other forums about this model) I'm going to return it to the online store and here are my...
Summary: Read the other reviews on Amazon and the GPS review sites. Be aware of the trade-off and criticisms. For me this unit performs very well, and it exactly what I was looking for: a top notch GeoCaching GPS with a large hi resolution screen.
Summary: Comments about Garmin Colorado 400t Portable Navigator: When I was a boy scout we used a simple compass and a paper map. Things have progressed a long way, as I could see when I went hiking with a friend who had one of these. He let me use it to navigate.
Pros: Accurate, One Hand Control, Quick Navigation
