I am very impressed with this camera. I have taken it out a couple of times already and have not had any difficulty getting a GPS lock, exactly what I would expect from one of the leaders in GPS equipment. The video it shot in 1080p at 30fps was sharp and putting the gauges on the video was super easy using the free software. I came from a contour camera to this and the difference is night and day. Didn't require that I format my SD card and just uploaded my video with intuitive editing software. Very nice and a massive change from contour, which hit or miss would even recognize the camera! The only con so far is that the little quick start manual is pretty useless. It takes a little bit of toying around with it to figure out all the tricks this compact thing can perform. Looking to putting it through the tests on the mountain bike and hopefully in the water soon. Unlike the other reviewer, I was able to find all the mounts I needed for this quickly on Amazon and Garmin's website. Will update as I get a bit more experience with it!
UPDATE: I tried the camera while skydiving, which is what I primarily bought it for. The altimeter does not work. It was showing some data between 13,500 and 12,600 and then no date until about 1,500. I read on forums that this problem is common. So I guess this is not a skydiving camera if you want to the gauges.
On the other hand it does produce a stable image and you can see how the image stabilization compensates when I move my head around.
A big issue was the actual quality of the video. I tried countless settings to try and get it right, but I had zero luck with it. Unfortunately I sent it back since for the price it should have been able to produce good video. As a comparable I also had a under a hundred buck camera that produced much better video. Odd I know, so I don't know if I had a dud or the quality just isn't great with this camera.
