Summary: I had the previous model of this same GPS handheld. This newer model performs just as well as the previous one. They say that it has longer battery life which I cannot tell. It seems to be as accurate as the previous model. I use this exclusively for offshore fishing.

Summary: I had the regular 72 for years, now I have the 72H, the receiver is more sanative and it loads the satellites faster. The screen works better in the sunlight and now I can download my wave points. I haven't used all the other feature yet but just based on the few upgrades I have used it's great.
Summary: It's Great at what it does, and it does exactly what it is supposed to. I did not want fancy maps etc, all I wanted was directionality and GPS locations, but it does do far more than that. It is not more or no less precisely as advertised which is exactly and precisely what I wanted.
Summary: This is a great value for me and my useage. I just need bearing and range from point a to b to c. I have used a Garmin 72 in the past and it is good to have a GPS again that I trust. I found the entire operator's manuel on the enclosed CD. So you need to look at the CD to learn how to use it.
