Summary: I used this on the PCT this year. I wish I would have brought my smart phone. I have used a Garmin 62 for years (which is a great GPS) and decided to upgrade to the 650. First day on the trip we needed to get water at the last source for possible dry camping.
Summary: I bought this Garmin device almost 4 months ago and it has been a huge disappointment. I've never had a true GPS (Garmin or other) before so I can't do much comparing, but my husband is an avid mountaineer who has had many.
Summary: This is easy to learn and fun to use. There have been some glitches with downloading from Geaocaching.com. It is very easy to enter Waypoints and has great map visibility. I broke it in by doing the RI Star. We were in the woods for about 6 hours and the battery held up great all day.
Summary: I bought this GPS receiver specifically for geocaching. Prior to that, I was using the geocaching app c:geo on an android phone, which was very accurate and almost never let me down. But I read advice that, after awhile, I would most likely need a true GPS for when there was no cell service.
