Summary: The negative reviews are all from the glitched firmware that was corrected by Magellan. this product is well worth the money. I use my unit for hunting and fishing. The unit has never failed me in the deepest swamps and backwaters of Florida.
Summary: bought this unit to replace other guys brand -didn't know how difficult other brand was to use and had so little use until I used this unit in the field - had very good reception in very rough country - very easy to load with national geographic maps - very good unit for such a reasonable price
Summary: I bought this device because we are the family of travellers (by bike and by camper) and I've been looking for such a device for a long time and have read a lot of reviews as well. It is very convenient in use and simple at the same time. The best thing is that it supports both formats of maps (not sure how to name them in English). I can't actually compare this device with others as I've never used anything of the type.
5 Stars! Works Excellent,user Friendly,Great device!

Summary: I rate this as 5 Stars! Across the board it very easy to use,it saves all my way-points and works great no problems,also lets you set the light which on a lower setting saves the battery.Very easy to figure out,and use.
Summary: I am extremely happy with the vakue and quality of the product. It boots up quickly and works very simply even for the not so savy GPS users. The maps are easily upgraded and cheap compared to other GPS companies.
this is part of my survival kit. dont leave home without it!

Summary: this is a great product. very user-friendly. i went out with a few groups on a long trail ride. since i had the gps in my rzr i was lead vehicle. the gps was accurate and gave pinpoint accuracy when it came time to return to camp.
Summary: I just used this GPS on a four day hiking trip and it was remarkable. I read a lot of the reviews on Amazon and noticed the negative reviews seemed to come from less than tech savoy individuals. I bought this GPS as factory refurbished knowing that a refurb had to be checked 100%. And had no technical issues while in the field. Yes, it takes a few minutes to start up and lock on to satellites but once locked on even thick woods and deep valleys can't stop this thing.
