Excerpt: Nothing amazing about this product. But being a simple outdoor guy I wanted a toy for geocaching, simple navigation and track making. This GPS is worth the money if you just want a simple navigation tool. I am very happy with it.
Summary: I'm using this only for geocaching and found it was way better then the ap on my phone. Generally gets me within 3 feet of a cache unless I'm around something metal and even then gets me closer then the ap. And when in doubt follow the pointer! This gets 4 stars mainly because it does take a lot of button pushing to get things done but is OK once you get used to it.
Summary: I was hesitant to buy it as I saw reviews that didn't rate it well. I wanted it to measure my daily walk and get bearings to get back to the car when in the wilderness. It does these functions really well. It calculates area effortlessly which is a function I wasn't aware of when I bought it. It does show a 9-28 ft error when checking positions, but it isn't relevant for most areas I use it.
Summary: The material padding made my etrex 30 seem very shock proof. I just used this case on a hike where the gps was hung off a strap on the backpack. Whenever I dismounted or mounted the backpack, I didn't have to worry about the gps hitting things since the case provided fairly good protection (as long as you don't directly hit the screen). The padding was raised enough to protect the joy stick most of the time. The included lanyard was awesome.
