Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
