Customer Reviews

Amazing piece of equipment Review by Doc. S
So glad I got this before starting my deployment. Works great (even during times when certain truck equipment is on when going out the wire). Whether in a truck or on foot, It works great, MGRS setting is extremely accurate. Even better, the 401 has the ability to transfer certain info to another wirelessly on the spot to another 401. Great Item, almost everyone I work with has one too (Posted on 9/19/2013)
I have used Garmins several times before purchasing one of my own, and this is by far one piece of equipment i would say EVERYONE NEEDS. battery life is awesome on it have had to have it on 12 hours plus during movements and has no issues keeping up. ive dropped it, its been rained on, its been bounced around and it doesnt show signs of wear and tear. its wonderful to be able to load a ton of check point on it, very easy to label things when you want to add on the go, and the back light feature is not over bearing at night!

Great! Review by Nor
Great device, say no more! (Posted on 8/8/2013)
nothing better in such a small package Review by Brian
Have used this on two deployments to OIF, for such a small device its great. Batteries last forever and the 401 takes a beating without so much as a scratched screen (Posted on 11/9/2012)
