this is a simple, no B.S. gps unit that works well for people at the entry level. i have had no problems with mine up until 3 weeks ago when it completely crashed. however i sent it in to garmin, and they said the repair would be covered by them. the pre-loaded basemap is next to useless for any navigation off of roads, so purchasing or downloading an improved, more detailed map set is a must for any backcountry navigation. just remember that the mapsets do not show campsites, so this is intended to work in concert with your map and compass. other than that, this is a solid unit.

I have had this GPS for years and is very reliable. It is not the fanciest GPS on the market, but for your basic needs it works great.
