Summary: Buying this GPS was probably one of the worst mistakes I have ever made. I simply HATE this this. I don't even know where to start... * - The screen is tiny and very hard to use with the touch screen * - If you believe what they say about battery life then you are crazy.
Summary: I purchased this unit several years ago. I have been sorry for that purchase since the first use. It eats batteries like they are M&M candies. It even eats batteries if you leave them in it and turn the unit off.
Summary: I'm sure this is a really nice unit, but it was too cumbersome for me to use it (I'm pretty technical savy, but not an electronics geek). I wanted a unit that was intuitive to use, and could basically route my hiking tracks to tell me how far I hiked and where the car is at.
Summary: First of all it uses two AA batteries which according to the manufacture last 16 hours. I would caution that is estimate and if you are venturing out in the woods make sure you start with fresh batteries and a couple of spares batteries.
Summary: Should have believed the other reviews. I wanted this for hiking, laying down a track, pan and zoom to features like peaks and creeks for names and positioning on a map. Forget it. 1. screen CANNOT be seen in either sunlight or shade. 2. terrible touch screen, panning is impossible 3.
