Great for back in the day when these were needed more.

Summary: Does great work, but compared to an I-Phone or the newer models, this seems like an Atari. I used it successfully many times, and it works as described. Downloaded additional state park maps and that helped a lot. This GPS did save my life in Bear Island in the Florida Everglades.
Summary: I've now had two in five years that failed - the first cost $100 to repair (or replace).Two years later I've got another Garmin Legend Cx that is dead.What should I do? Spend another $100 ( good money after bad) or get smart & buy a something else? - I'm tight!!
Summary: This is a great GPS unit. I bought it for learning my way around a big lake at night. With the use of this within one year I didn't need it anymore (for the lake anyway). My wife bought me the nt city navigator to use it when we take trips and it worked very well.
Summary: This is a fantastic Gps unit. I have used it in the field for quite some time. It is very accurate. It will lose signal when walking or driving through thick forest. Other than that it works fine.This is the second Gps unit I buy from Garmin. I would recommend it without hesitation.
Summary: Overall, I am very impressed with this GPS. It has the removable microsd so you can put in map files of varying types and sizes. I used this hunting and I suddenly became very confident in areas I don't know at all. It worked great and track mode helps going and getting back.
Summary: Too bad it's not made any more, but it's successor is no slouch, I bet. I paid $118 and I'm very happy. Does Geo-caching, is extremely accurate (5-10'), has great battery life, can double as a GPS for a car on trips, has a slot for a memory module for maps, and so forth.
This is my fourth Garmin and I would not buy anything…

Excerpt: This is my fourth Garmin and I would not buy anything else. I love the color display especially when using topo maps. I have two chips one with city street and another for hiking, a great feature.
