Summary: If you have Windows 8, you can not use. After a month of attempts and a call to Magellan, this is what they determined. Now my return window is out of date. I think it would have been a great device to use but do not get if you do not have a computer that operates Windows 8.
Summary: My husband tried to power the unit up and the screen is frozen, he went on line and tried to trouble shoot the issue and it seems that this must happen a lot. He has tried 4 times to call the Magellan help line and hasn't been able to get through yet. We will be returning the unit.
Summary: I like my iPhone 4s for geocaching but the battery life was only about 5 hours. I chose this GPS Receiver with a toggle switch vs a touch screen to avoid unwanted screen changes due to operator error. This device fit my two needs for pure geocaching at a affordable price that fit my budget.
Summary: Received it and it didn't work. The power would turn on and then freeze on the logo screen. I called Magellan and tried to get it replaced. After spending more than an hour on the phone with them, they wanted me to send it back to be replaced by a new one. AND THEN..

Summary: hardware breaks within a month of small use. gone through two replacements now. at this rate, expect to be on my fifth within the warranty and then after wards i am out of luck on getting a replacment. both times their was no physical damage nor did i even drop it.
Summary: This is the worst gps I have bought. I bought it for geo caching and it is normally about 60' off my phone has always been a lot more accurate. I purchased this because I thought it would be nice to connect it to the computer and store the caches on the gps but the can never get that to work right.
Summary: I purchased this unit a while ago, but feel I need to post another review. The first unit went bad about 2 days after I received it. A series of pixelated lines showed up on the screen. Even when the unit was turned off, the lines were visible in the screen.
Summary: I chose to purchase this item as a gift for someone that is wanting to get into geocaching. I have used Garmin's in the past, but this product boasted of being perfect for beginner cachers, and even created specifaclly for that purpose.
Summary: 1. Impossible to read in bright (sunny) daylight. 2. Text is too small. 3. Is advertised to be used on a bicycle. Maps don't know any bike trails Probably good for Geocaching and hiking. Returned item after 2 weeks of trying; including the bike mount.
