Does it's Job Review by Benny

As the previous reviewer mentioned it's a little clunky & tedious to navigate through different features but does what it should. It's definitely got good signal reception being the 'sensitive' model. I'll take a dedicated unit over a mobile phone any day.

Solid handheld unit if you want durability Review by Mike

To be honest, this generation of Garmin device is showing age. The interface and graphics are clunky and dated when compared to the GPS tools you can get for $0.99 on your phone these days, but I still believe in the utility of a dedicated handheld GPS device, especially for backcountry use. It's durable and functional, and the customizable info screens are great.
