Summary: This unit does not have a SD memory slot. This limits the type of maps available to use. This is not explained to well with the product description. Garmin is too proprietary and I wasted a lot of time learning this.
Summary: I've owned several different GPS handheld units and this has been the easiest and user friendly one yet. For the price you get so many different features and abilities. I use mine for Geocaching; and with the intergration with the website this unit is perfect for it.
Very Helpful, Can't do without it. Makes measuring areas simple.

Summary: Works wonderfully. I am using it to measure fields. Very easy to use, just hit computer start and drive the outer boundary and hit stop You don't even have to complete the circle. The last point back to the starting point is calculated for you. Should have bought one much earlier.
Summary: Touch screen works really well. Several profiles that can have separate settings for different activities is really nice. It is generally pretty accurate even under tree cover and such. The USB transfer ability is great, especially for geocaching or map transfer.
Summary: We tried out a Garmin Oregon 450, which is really top of the line. But we're just looking to geocache with it so we don't need all the bells and whistles. Takes a little longer to acquire the satellite, but it's worth the savings. The touch screen is nice and it's a good sign put in our pocket.
Summary: Without the manual that we got from the Garmin website it's not expecially intuitive. This is the first handheld GPS for tracking that I've purchased and it's taking a lot of trial and error to figure out how to use it with the map software.
