Summary: Bought this about a year ago. I am a non-techy and still found it easy to get up and running and to use. I use it mostly in the north woods where there isn't any cell service. I didn't give this a full five stars as the screen is on the small side of life and difficult to read.
Summary: very useful for snowmobiling and im sure during summer time use. When a buddy gets stuck easy to pinpoint his location. So far still trying to figure out all the features, but once figured out should be a very good device. Will add to the safety gear i already carry
Summary: I think this is going to be a great help in a lot of ways. Haven't really used it yet but am anxious to do so. The only thing I don't really like is the back light isn't very bright. Other than that am anxious to start using it to the full capacity.
Rugged simple instrument but expensive and dropped by Garmin

Summary: Good for outdoor that is why I had to have another one to replace the retired from abuse its predecessor. It has a very simple no-brainer operation. Good solid water splash protected housing. Backlit but not bright to disclose you in a dark display.
Summary: The GPS works very well overall. I like the functionality. The two things that I wish were better were the battery life and the radio function. The radio seems to cut out when you are a half mile or more away from the other user.
Summary: These radios are really horrible. We use them hunting in northern Michigan and the range (in the long-range channels) is pathetic and worthless. They are frustrating and not worth the bother. Plus they chew through batteries very quick - less than 2 hours of use is what we experienced.
