Look for a better product, even if you have to pay a bit more.

Summary: Display is small and so is text for most modes. Did not come with any instructions, but instructions were found online. However, instructions are not extremely detailed and do not cover loading topographical maps. Batteries that came with the unit died in 30 minutes. This will work for my purposes, but could have been so much better.
Summary: I recieved this unit as a gift. It is a very basic handheld unit with no frill's straight out of the box. Someone in one of the prior reviews stated that they actualy read the booklet that came with the unit. EXACTLY! Read the booklet, become familiar with the controll's, etc. My only beef is that the unit does not come with the required USB cable needed to upload maps, etc. I logged into Amazon to do that since I found a better price and noticed these reviews.
lot of bang for the buck with lil extra to buy ... great unit
