Summary: The interface is a little complicated and there are some minor quirks with the firmware that Magellan could fix but haven't as of yet, but the worst shortcoming to me is the poor visibility in bright sunlight.
Summary: Compared to apps on my cell phone this device is very complicated. It does, however; work in remote places where my cell phone becomes worthless. The screen is small but it is easier to read in direct sun compared to a cell phone.
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: I currently own 6 GPS's. I bought my first one in 1998 and have watched as technology has gotten better through the years and this is definitely the pinnacle of GPS technology thus far. From 1998 until recently, I've used my GPS as I've hiked and hunted all over the midAtlantic region of the USA.
