A very good you did but no longer manufactured.

fishnweeds, Ebay
5 January 2014
  • Summary: This is/was a great unit. However, it seems that every time a manufacture comes out with an outstanding product it is taken off the market in the hopes of selling something more expensive with features that may not be needed. I use this GPS to locate fishing areas such as brush piles, drop offs, or other locations. It has served me well for this purpose and is reasonably accurate.

  • Summary: The toggle is difficult to use. I have seen similar modules that can be toggled with the thumb. This one requires two hands.

  • Summary: I received this unit as a gift. I used it on bike rides about 5 times, and then it failed to turn on. No fixes available. CPU won't recognize it. Its a brick. Waste of money.

A great way to get into geocaching and personal navigation

librarymonkey27, Ebay
10 March 2013
  • Summary: For the price I paid on Ebay, I thought it was a good deal. The ease of use ... well simple things work out well, but it has taken me some research and more than the Garmin Manual to figure out things like importing way points. All that said, it is a great way to get started with handhelds, I am learning the hobby of Geocaching, as well as recording my outdoor travels and it has been great for that

The BEST Handheld GPS Unit on the market for GEOCACHING or Weekend Hikes

rickeylee48, Ebay
9 November 2012
  • Summary: Simply THE BEST handheld GPS on the market for the money. Inexpensive, easy to use. The most widely used GPS unit for GEOCACHING. As a result geocaching downloads from GEOCACH.com are compatible. It has 24K of onboard memory (not expandable) but enough to download 5 or 6 detailed local USGS topological maps. Battery life about 18 to 19 hours. You'll want to get alkaline AA batteries and a charger.

DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE NOT GETTING TOO!!

fishoutofwater, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: This was my first GPS and I read all the reviews and everything looked find. I got the GPS on time (thank you Amazon) and everything looked good. Navigation of the device was easy to pick up. It was user friendly. The first kicker that I found was that the base map was terrible. It only showed large bodies of water (i.e. large lakes, oceans, and some rivers). It also mainly showed only major roadways (i.e.
