Last night I posted a scathing 1 star review of this unit. Today after spending more time with the unit I deleted that review and am posting a 5 star rating. I would prefer a 4.5 star rating as it does have one flaw I will talk about later.

The purpose in my opening paragraph and review title is to let prospective purchasers know this unit has so many features related to outdoor use that it's going to have a learning curve, possibly a steep one for those who may be purchasing their first GPS. I have owned 3 or 4 handhelds and a couple auto GPSes so I am not unfamiliar with how to use these things.

If you want a GPS for auto routing this is NOT it. It doesn't do auto routing at all (the 710 does). This unit is also massive overkill for geocaching. It has many nice features that are geocaching related, but there are much less expensive units that work wonderfully for geocaching.

In my opinion this is a GPS unit for the avid outdoor person. It's a unit so capable and feature rich you will have to spend hours (and probably read the online manual) to figure out not just how to use some of them, but even find them within the layers upon layers of menus. (part of my initial, 1 star review stated this GPS lacks the common compass screen. It has one, I just wasn't able to find it last night ;)

If you hike, bike, kayak, etc. and you want a GPS that will keep up with you then this is the GPS for you. The GPS chip in this unit is second to none. Out of the box it found my location almost instantly. I have not previously owned a handheld GPS that locked onto satellites instantly. My car GPS usually does, but not any previous handheld. It even maintains a satellite lock when I am in my garage with the door closed. Phenomenal.

I've had this unit for a while now and am extremely pleased with it. I had been using an older SporTrak Pro for many years and was being lured towards upgrading to a Garmin because of the ability to download custom maps into them. That changed when I started using this unit - the topo map quality (and pre-loaded street maps, for that matter) are nothing short of impressive. The kicker for me was having the detailed trail maps of the state parks in my area which was what I had been looking for in a new unit.

The camera quality is good. Perfect for hiking/geocaching and taking pictures while on the go. It allows you to attach the picture to your tracks or a location/cache for easy reference later which make caching much easier when you need to take pictures to go along with you log.

The paperless caching is awesome, replacing the Palm that I had been using for the past 6 years. Having the full descriptions, hints, logs, etc. at your fingertips is great.

I've found the unit to be very accurate with little of the historic "Magellan boomerang" when approaching "Ground Zero".

The menu is easy to navigate and it allows you to customize your own short-cuts to your most frequently-used functions.

All in all, a GPS that I would highly recommend for anybody looking for a solid unit that has enhanced features.

Bought it. Like it. Does everything it says it will do. Trying to figure out how to do that is another question. Fortunately, I am somewhat familiar with GPS systems and how they operate. But trying to decifer the user's manual is like trying to run through hell in a gasoline sports jacket. I sympathize with first time gps users. How do you create a route? No instructions. How do you reset odometer. Trial and error. It wouldn't be bad if the system were intuitive like an IPhone, but most of it is not. You must devote a significant amount of time to trial and error in order to understand most features.

Even their support people had trouble understanding some of the features.

Tips: to establish a route, you must first have waypoints and add them to the create route menu.

Tracks: to create a new track you must first either save or delete your current track and then start a new track.

There are many other features that could be explained and simplififed in the user's manual.

All in all, a good unit, but be willing to spend some time figuring out the features. Definitely not an out of the box unit.

I had purchased the 610 to replace a Lowrance Ifinder H2O which served me well for several years. I really like the touch screen navigation and it makes it easy to navigate around the GPS's features. It's easy to enter waypoints either by manually entering the coordinates, averaging the coordinates or by using the one touch feature. The "4 corners" hot buttons are a great addition as well. It's easy to start and save tracks. The 610 has a barometric altimeter if you don't mind recalibrating it frequently, but I find I use the GPS altimeter more often. The preloaded maps are awesome especially the Summit Series maps. I am able to load my tracks from hikes into Google Earth or in the Vantage point software you are able to download from the Magellan website. It is also easy to plot routes in Google Earth or Vantage Point and synch it with the GPS. Same goes for waypoints. I have done this several times if hiking off trail and have not had any issues with finding my route. The 610 also has a built in 3.2 megapixel camera, a video cam, and a voice recorder. I have used the features a few times but I think it taxes the battery life. Speaking of which, it's not great. To get decent life, you need lithiums or some high grade rechargeables. If you are out on long hikes, it's best to put in fresh batteries and carry a spare set just in case. The "suspend" feature helps extend the batteries' life and it also keeps track of your progress. All in all this is a good GPS for the money.
