Summary: I have only owned two GPS receivers prior to this one. A Garmin Etrex and a Garmin Venture. This one is better than both. I like the easy to read screen and the detail it gives. You will have to upload map sets from the Garmin software for the area you will be in.
Summary: I bought this to replace a nice 60Csx that I lost overboard. The description on Amazon said that it was great for navigating on the water. Then, when I finally got it, I found out that their definition of navigating "on the water" means a very few inland lakes that you have to buy software for.
Summary: I have always liked garmins but i wanted a new gps that I could put topo maps on so I could truly see where i was and wanted to go without having to carry around a map book. My use of the unit has been for natural resources college classes, work, big game hunting, and for search and rescue.
Summary: I've had a Garmin hand-held unit before, but upgraded to this one for the added elevation change function which I need for work. The entire unit is user friendly, and easy to switch from different functions.
Summary: I'll preface this by saying that I'm a novice GPS user, and some of my problems could be user error. I recently hiked England's Coast to Coast path using this product. It does the job it is supposed to do, but not as easily as it perhaps could. I downloaded a set of 190 waypoints for the hike.
