This is the first GPS I have owned. Overall rating is positive, I have been able to load the Quetico Maps/campsites and use it to identify my location if misoriented. Being able to track your speed on the water is nice bonus.


Having a color screen is a must and this very readable except in a high glare condition.


It doesn't have all the bells or whistles such a Camera or MP3 player, but I didn't want that anyway.
