Hard to use

Wolfsca, Walmart
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I've own this device for about 2 years. Great for Geocaching but not for trekking or hiking. Most sites have way points to download for the Garmin but not for Magellan products. The maps on my iphone was easier to use.

Oh Luuuceee, you got some 'splainin' to do.

ITCS, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Three hundred something dollars. This was my first GPS, so I wanted a good one. I thought it would be out-of-the-box great GPS-ing for my Scouts and me. I thought I could track my route from home to work. I thought I could at least get it to tell me how fast I was walking or driving. Nope.

  • Summary: Just getting familiarized with the 610. Basic operations were easy to figure out and use. Good for geocaching so far and after getting the topos down will test the back woods navigating.

  • Summary: I've now ordered this 610 three times. Unit 1 arrived and I familiarized myself with the menus and was happy with the operation. I then loaded the software onto my PC (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit) and connected the device.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: OK, got this last week and used it for geocaching this weekend. It works great. It took me a little bit to update to the newest firmware, get the Vantage Point software and figure out the GPX download and import functions but it wasn't too much and reminded me of the first time I sat down with my...

Great unit for hiking/geocaching

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: I've had this unit for a while now and am extremely pleased with it. I had been using an older SporTrak Pro for many years and was being lured towards upgrading to a Garmin because of the ability to download custom maps into them.
