Summary: I purchased this Garmin from a company called GPSnow in 2002 (not sure if they are still in business). The Garmin has worked well for me, and has met all my expectations for a GPS. It's still going strong. Things I like about it: * handheld * waterproof * doesn't eat batteries * menu navigation is good (once you learn it...like anything else) * easy to use (once you learn it..
Summary: The product has not been useful as all so far on a trip to Europe because of the unavailability of satallites. I'm hoping a trip to the Grand Canyon will have more success. I didn't realize how old this product was when I bought it. Buyer beward.
Summary: I received this for Christmas. It is going back. I was walking around my front yard after getting a satellite fix and the Garman had me walking around in the middle of the lake behind me - which would have been 1/2 to 1/3 mile away. This was purchased to assist me with kayak navigating. With the kind of inaccuracy I cited, it would be very easy to stay lost. The only roads shown are the major highways, so land navigation in rural areas is impossible.
