Summary: I'm a past camper who has experienced the challenges of rain, water, and insufficient space in backpacks and appreciate a tough GPS. I did not experience the many software problems mentioned in other reviews, but didn't use it heavily either.
Summary: I purchase too many toys! I begin with this because I hope to instill a sense of trust based on the ton of stuff I learn to use, adapt too and play with; from planes to scuba gear. That said, I will save us both some time here and ask you to review John Williamson's review, Jan 28, 2010.
