Pros: It gets me where I want to Go plus I can Save my tracks

Cons: Maps aren't cheap

Recommendation: Buy it if you want something not too fancy and something not too dull

Pros: Keeps your track regardless of density of forest you are in. This GPS worked well for me in Iraq also. Love that you can you SD slot for maps. Holds ton of trails on it.

Cons: Fell off my truck and got crushed.

Pros: High sensitivity receiver. MicroSD Card.

Cons: Relatively expensive map software from Garmin.

Recommendation: I've owned this unit for a couple of weeks now and I am loving it! The high sensitivity receiver actually makes a huge difference in the accuracy of the tracks and waypoints. I love the fact that it is ready for expansion (with the purchase of a microSD card). I haven't had a chance to use this feature yet since I just shelled out $280.00 for the unit so another $120.00 for map software is not in the immediate future. Can't complain about the bright color screen, USB port, and the neato menu system with total customization available. Overall I love this device and think the price is reasonable for the amount of features you get. It would be nice if Garmin included at least a topo map instead of the basic streets and highways (useless almost). The only difference between this unit and the more expensive Vista HCx is the barometric altimeter which I can live without for a much lower price.
