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. Went back on line and since I had to get another one, I upgraded to Oregon !! Love the easy use and the accuracy it has.
Summary: This is the second one I bought. I was so impress with the first one that I got one for my wife. Compare to others GPS receivers this one acquired the satellites pretty fast. I would recommend to use lithium batteries. Also don't forget to calibrate the GPS after replacing the batteries.
One Of The Best Pre-Touchscreen GPS Handheld Units

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. The reciever is small and nearly unnoticable, but very powerful. I've been able to recieve signal from indoors with this GPS, and that is no lie.
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. It eats up power, requiring carrying extra weight in spare batteries. Recommend supplement it with an old fashioned compass -- more additional weight.
Summary: Great GPS with everything you need for detail all is already in the unit. Unfortunately mine fell in the water kayaking and never worked again. Too bad because I really loved this thing. Now I settled for one that floats. It your not boating this is a great unit. If your boating better keep it dry.
Summary: easy to use....though I'm a left handed :-D no problems at all with usage. Reliable and quite accurate. I use behalf of the Colorado an Oregon 400i, too. Actually i am really pleased about both of them. Excellent products from Garmin.
Summary: I've had 5 units in the past 2 years that lasted no longer than 4-5 months before some problem cropped up and have had to return the unit for repair or exchange. This last one was after the repaired 90 warranty and costs $108 plus shipping to get another or this one repaired. That is slightly half the cost of a new one.
Summary: All Good, update the firmware, study the manual, get you a set of good batterys and use only garmin maps. Simply luv it. i have purchased about 4 gps and this is the best so for and the easyest to operate. Worth the money by for.
Summary: Colorado 400t - cool for travel, walking anywhere, and you have to purchase a new Maps for this device. - and great stuff for Mac Os X - Garmin have any programs to work and transfer any information. Great think !
