Summary: I bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it and particularly likes the touch screen, rather than the joystick on other Garmins. We have been geocachers for over eight years but have only ever had one GPSr between us. Now, with two arrows, we can find geocaches more easily.
Summary: A very well designed instrument, comfortable to hold with a lot of useful features. Accesses satellites quickly, even from inside the house, in contrast to our old Magellan GPS 315, which was slower and now won't even initialize.
Summary: I have to add I trust Garmin as I have used several products over the years! But this is compact, light weight and easy to use. Especially by my young children, a must for any family, well worth the in expense!
What on earth do people see in this. Good in Africa though!

Summary: It does more than I expected it would! It's not only very accurate - right up to the known accuracy limitations of the GPS system itself - but picks up the satellites very quickly after switch on. But it's the extra abilities that impress me.
Summary: Bought solely for the purpose of geocaching; we now wouldn't be without this. It's a great piece of equipment for the price. I immediately updated the maps on talkytoaster as advised by other reviewers (very straight forward, "if I can do it...
Summary: Works fine bought it to replace our etex h downloaded the open maps as per an earlier review. Got the bike mount for it which could be better but does the job as long as you don't try to adjust the angle of it while riding with the gps inserted when I did this the gps came flying off at about 20mph...
