Summary: After debating for weeks and reading literally dozens of reviews some more than once I decided on the 301 for me. I'm not operating in military ops just trekking through the woods sometimes on a wheeler or on foot I always carry a topo map and compass where I'm going.
Summary: This gps is perfect for hiking, running, and paddling. Very simple to download and upload tracks, and waypoints to and from CPU with provided USB cord. Battery life has been very good. I typically get 12-14 hours with new Duracell batteries.
Even naming a trail is super hard because you have to go thru each letter ...

Summary: Too hard, if not impossible, to use the menus. Even naming a trail is super hard because you have to go thru each letter of the alphabet using the up/down arrows. I wouldn't recommend this product. Spend more and buy one that is easier.
Very functional with all essential navigation information

Summary: This wrist-worn GPS unit provides all the essential information for navigation in the backcountry, and it is super-convenient to use because it is hands-free -- just glance at it like reading a watch.
Summary: so after a lot of research I found that this is the best bang for you buck when it comes to a gps. I have a lot of friends that used this device on their deployments. I got out before this was available, yeah I know it was that long ago lol.
Summary: Easy to use right out of the box, no need to really read directions (my favorite quality in a product), and durable! I use this for endurance riding (think EXTREME trail racing on horseback) where the terrain is rough, the distances are long, the trails are in remote areas, and a falling can result...
