Perfect for what I needed

Date:November 18, 2014
The large screen made it easy to read in the field. Never lost signal even in my pocket. Tracks well. I like the rechargeable battery with the option of AA battery use although never had to use them. 2 days of use without charging with battery life to spare. Works well with additional maps. recommend this unit when hunting in unfamiliar area. Didn't use the turn by turn direction function. Touch screen works well with gloves on.

Exceellent product

Date:September 30, 2014
Used it hunting in Colorado. First time in area and it worked great. Topo, streams and all detail was a big help in getting around and finding my way back. State overlay helped keep us on BLM and federal land and off private ranches.

Good but Bulky

Date:November 8, 2013
On the plus side: very fast satellite acquisition, very accurate, great graphics and intuitive to use.
Negatives: bulky and heavy. In this age of quarter inch thick cell phones and tablet computers, I have to think that Garmin has done this intentionally in the interests of being "ergonomic". I would gladly trade the satisfying hefty hand feel to a device that slips easily into my shirt pocket or hunting vest.

Not happy, sending back.

Date:August 11, 2013
I have owned six other Garmin units, 3 of them for hiking and hunting. I have counted on Garmin for many years but they have failed me on this one. This unit is very heavy, too heavy for hiking and hunting. Also, the maps that come with it do not have the detail needed for hunting, you will have to upgrade to the 1:24000 maps and where I live I would have to buy 2 sets and add a microSD card. You will also need mounting accessories. You will just about double your investment by the time you finish. I think Garmin has really let us down on this unit, I am sending mine back.
