Poor customer service Poor software READ THIS BEFORE BUYING THIS UNIT.
10 February 2015
Summary: I got this for a trip we are going on, after looking for hours on the internet comparing different unit it was down to this unit or the Garmin Oregon 650T. I ordered this unit upon arrival it turned on ok but could not read the screen in the sun.
Summary: This is a good unit. The problems it has, is it eats batteries and it is almost impossible to read in the sun. All the features on it are good, accuracy is outstand except for elevation (It can be anywhere from 25 t0 500ft off). Batteries last only about 4 hrs, if your lucky.
Summary: What I like: accuracy, screen brightness, touchscreen, camera, quick-disconnect battery door, mini-SD capability. What I don't like: difficult to enter text for a log, touchscreen get wonky sometimes, the weight..
Summary: Solid feel to a feature-rich GPS. Many options to the display that are much easier to get to than in previous models. Very pleased with this model. I use it in the car, then unplug it from the 12-volt supply and use it walking, biking, and hiking!
Summary: My first handheld GPS but really like it. The pre loaded maps are awesome, they show great detail and name even the smallest streams accurately. I have had this out in the field a lot now and have had moments where the compass loses calibration but for the most part it has gotten me in and out of...
Summary: The gps is decent from a function and use standpoint, but the compete and total lack of battery life warrants two stars. The first two times I used the unit battery life seemed okay. Since then I get 2 or 3 hours on alkalines.
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.
Summary: The firmware that came with it did not work as advertised, it did not keep tracking when it went to sleep. I upgraded the firmware to the latest from the Magellan site and it now works as advertised. My last GPS was a Delorme PN-60. Unfortunately it got crushed when it fell in front of a Jeep.
