Summary: For the money, this is definitely a motorcyclist's asset. Fairly simple to use. Though no longer in production, refurbished ones can be found on ebay. A recommended tool for the roadway explorer.
Without current maps, useless in a car or motorcycle.

Summary: Garmin no longer supports street maps for this GPS. You will be using maps from 2004. This GPS can use other types of maps, such as topo, marine, or world maps, but will not function with NT-style maps from Garmin. DO NOT BUY THIS GPS for use on a motorcycle or car!
Summary: This is a good basic GPS unit. Not very complicated and can give basic routing and waypoints. The GPS reciever can loose contact on occaision but usually reconnects quickly. A decent basic GPS.
Summary: What is wrong with all the new GPS's on the market these days, they are all touch screen, which if your trying to move a cursor around on the screen the find and un-known location you have to screw around for hours just to move the cursor in the right area's.
Summary: Although it's getting a bit dated now, the Garmin Quest is still an excellent GPS when the requirements include portability (pocket-sized and self-powered)and waterproof design. Hence, it is great for hikers, boaters, cyclists, etc.
Summary: This GPS I'm sure would be fine for PC people, but no where in it's description did it say it was NOT Mac compatible. I had to search for someone with a pc go to their house and set it up there, then the directions don't match what it show on the screen at certain parts.
Summary: This GPS is perfect for those who want a little more than just A-to-B navigation. I'm used to programming routes with multiple waypoints (not just individual segments), and the Quest is, as far as I can tell, the ONLY car GPS in this price range that will do that.

Summary: I bought the Garmin because I had read here and elsewhere that Garmin had good products and good support. The device advertised all the features I wanted, so I went for it and have been extremely happy with it. I have encountered one bug, but it has an easy workaround, so no big deal.
