Summary: This is the smallest, most versatile GPS at a reasonable price. Just add the North American Cities NT on MicroSD card and you'll be in operation in minutes. No interfacing with PC or special software required. Land, Marine, Cycling, even navigation directly by air. You'll always know when you're flight is getting in, much sooner than the pilot will announce Add the included carabiner clip and this is the most compact and accurate GPS today.
Summary: I bought this GPS for snowmobiling. Loaded unit with a micro sd card that i purchased from Red Pine Mapping. Maps work perfectly and the reception is great. I was riding in the Adirondack Park and never lost a signal.Battery lasted all day.

Summary: Ordered this for the holiday, received it on time. Device is nice to look at, a bit bulky but the interface was easy to use. Was surprised that there were NO maps included with this costly device. So bit the bullet and ordered from Garmin onlinetheir 50.00 Trailhead Series - Pacific NW National Trail to at least populate this device with some trail maps. No go.
Summary: I'll keep it short and sweet. I bought this to go hunting in the New Mexican mountains. I didn't get lost, I found all my way points and I didn't break the bank getting a GPS. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because it kept telling me the battery was low after only a few hours of use and the battery saver was on so I had to keep pushing the side button which is awkward while wearing manly mittens :-) I never did have to change out the batteries so I don't...
Summary: This is a good GPS receiver; however, shortly after purchasing it, downloading geocaches directly from Geocaching.com to the Garmin Oregon 450 on the computer became impossible to accomplish via Microsoft and Google Chrome. Also, reading the distance to the cache on the compass is sometimes difficult to read in certain light conditions. Think about these factors before ordering.
Summary: I bought this product to help me find my way when I'm out hunting. I didn't need to spend the extra money on the 450t because all of the TOPO maps are free at GPSfiledepot.com. I like that this product is easy to use and keeps battery life pretty well. This is my first GPS so I can't really compare it to any others, but I did a lot of research to find the right GPS for me and I got this one used for a great price.
