Summary: The Garmin Quest II Is small, rugged and extremely portable. It will also function as a hand held although it is not useful for geo-tagging/caching/tracking. It is waterproof and I have tested it during an extreme thunderstorm while riding from Colorado to Texas. I entered the storm near Abilene and from there rode continuously through a heavy downpour all the way to Fort Hood. I was soaked but the GPS was still functioning and still does.
Summary: I've had the Quest 2 for 4 or 5 years. I use it nearly every day. It is very lightweight and small. It does fit easily into a shirt or pants pocket for safety or use. It holds 500 waypoints! Not just 1 or 2, so waypoints or destinations from last week or years ago are still in the memory. They may not be on a list, but go to map mode, find the Icon, that you used and labeled, click and you are headed that way. You can build a whole trip and save it.
Summary: I bought the Garmin Quest 2 Car GPS Receiver three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive gps. The Garmin Quest 2 Car GPS Receiver size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 6 hours.important features easily. Overall, I'd recommend the gps if you're on a budget.
Summary: I have the Garmin Quest 2 GPS on the handle bars of my bicycle. I have not yet used all of the features, but the one that is very nice is the mode that makes it look like speedometer, showing numbers of speed distance time stopped and other data that make the workout more interesting. Not knowing that you first have to reset the device in order for it to work (acquire satellites) in your area, was not good since it took a phone call with a waiting time of 35 min.
Summary: Excellent product, came specifically designed for the toyota fj cruiser. I boought installed it myself, with detailed installation instructions and it works like a charm. I find the screen a little small, but you do not even have to use the screen, you can always follow the voice command. The best product I have bought in a long while and it works. Highly recommended.
Summary: The Quest 11 is much like the Quest 1, except the maps are preloaded into it's much larger memory. If you've ever changed units, or computers, you'll know what a hassle this saves. On the road, performance is great, as long as you haven't added additional map sets. With all of north America built in, what more do you need?
Summary: I have used teh Garmin Quest 2 for a number of years. This is my second as my other was stolen. It has both the capabilities for the user that just wants to enter an address and be guided to the destination as well as many more sophisticated features and capabilities. It also has a great battery life and fits easily in a shirt pocket. It's just ashame that Garmin is discontinuing the model as they do not currently offer anything with the same capabilities.
Summary: I own the Harley Davidson version of the Quest2 called the Conquest. I have used it for over 50,000 miles of traveling across the US. It's terrific. Allows downloaded routes from a PC, has a 20 hour rechargeable battery, can be used with gloves, is water proof, shock resistant, and accurate as well as easy to use. When I bought the Quest2 for my bike, I also purchased a dash mount for my auto. This purchase was for my wife's auto.
Summary: I've had my Quest 2 for two years. Its slow to boot up, but thats the only draw back. When we were outside Plains Ga on a lonly dark road, we were amazed that the driveways we passed showed on the screen. We've taken it with us on many vacations and never had a problem. Its very acurate. The battery life is long. We've taken it on the Harley and stays charged for almost 8 hours. Its been dropped and the antenna broke off.
