I love my GPS! I previously owned a Magellan Meridian Gold and I was great for it's time, but technology outran it. The color screen is very readable. The battery-life is great, maybe 12-18 hours on a pair of alkaline AA's. The digital compass is handy for when your not moving and trying to get you bearings. I'm using the Garmin MapSource, North America NT software, which works great. I'm using a 2G micro SD card and it will hold maps for nearly all of the USA. The unit is small enough to keep in your pocket.
Highly recommend this unit!
