Excerpt: Le boîtier en plastique gris et noir entouré d’un grip en caoutchouc noir confère au Meridian Platinum son aspect de solidité. Mesurant 16,5x7,4x3 cm (H/L/P) pour 226,8 g (batteries incluses), l’appareil est un peu plus volumineux et lourd que les modèles de la gamme eTrex de Garmin et pas aussi attractif.
