Summary: I've carried this thing for nearly 400 miles now through heavy back country in Colorado and Arizona. It's gotten me out of the woods every time. Basic operation is pretty simple and easy to use. I only wish it had a color screen, camera, and batteries would last a bit longer. For a novice hiker, it is perfect. Would definitely recommend to anyone for easy in-the-woods GPS navigation.
need to carry your gps in your pocket????---this is the one you need to use.......

Summary: love this gps!! i work in the oil field and am constantly needing reliable g.p.s. coordinates for various reasons and this fits the bill. For me, its the small amount of space it occupies that makes this my favorite..I had no idea I could get a cover for it-just found that with my most recent purchase about 5 days ago--will definetely keep the screen from getting beat up and crystal clear. I like that i can change the format for the the coordinates , the constrast.
Summary: Holy cow, the manual. You couldn't read anything less helpful in the world. That being said... I used to the Garmin primarily for Geocaching. I liked the feature that I was able to save cache details in the GPS logs on my computer, and find them when I was out hiking around. It is black and white. For the price it's a pretty sweet device. I've had mine for three years. The battery life COULD be better, but it's not horrible.
Summary: I've had one of these for several years. Use for hiking. Works really well. I use in conjunction with my trail map. Basically what I do it have the GPS draw a line as I hike, then I look at my trail map (which has a bold line showing the trail) and this helps me keep up with where I am on the trail. A couple months ago I hiked without this unit.
Summary: This little GPS is very handy. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, so it is very simple to use. Works well in heavy cover, WAAS enabled can to 9' accuraccy. Trip computer page has many function to choose from, you can set it up by what is important to you. Locks on to satellites pretty quick.
