No maps. worthless device or super expensive compass.
Pros: nice to look at, would provide a clear picture of where you are at, easy interface.
Cons: bulky, takes up alot of space. Short battery life (in par with other devices though). Comes with no maps and their costs are extravagant, so basically a hidden extra cost to an already expensive device. Garmin online shop and site is worthless, repeated failures on their end like not saving passwords so you have to do a recover process each time you log on, repeated failures to even process a registration of the device, and other problems with their online site make using this device more work and frustration than is wanted.
garmin get their download processes and online interface working then maybe this will be worth the high cost. but for now I will avoid all their products.
The screen was very readible and I think this is a non issue. I firmly believe Garmin trully engineered this screen considering vital factors like direct sunlight (which actually enhances visibility on this unit), touch screen technology and (very important) battery life. Is it bright like my HDTV? ... no ... is it more than effective in the field? ... absolutley yes. I love it ... case closed for me.
Last weekend I took my daughter and nephew to Mackinaw Island, Michigan for a day of mountian biking and ended the day searching for a geocache which I downloaded off Garmin "Extras" site. The Oregan made the day lots of fun because we all learned to use the GPS to guide our adventure. I started Tracking once off the ferry and stopped once we left the Island. When I got home and downloaded the trip the Garmin site displayed a very cool summary of the days ride trip ... elevation and speed strip charts, Track overlayed on a map of the Island and a great summary of time, distance, ascent, descent and then even an dynamic review of the track.
So far the only annoyance is software user friendliness. If I wish to calibrate the compass my intuition is to find the option under "Compass" ... nope ... look under the "Heading" softkey on the main menu. Not sure if I can customize by relocating such actions but I will have to look into it more.
Note: I have an 8GB Kingston micro-SD card in the back with 1:24k Northeast U.S. Topo maps installed with just under 4GB left for more.
I would certainly recommend it and I know when I asked my geocaching friends their opinion they all loved it! So I'm certain most of my issues at the moment are simply because I'm in the learning stage!
