Replaced my PN20 with this unit. Wanted more internal memory and went with the limited edition PN40se that has 8GB internal memory and uses the latest SD chip 32+GB. Unit comes with Delorme Topo 8 software for a home computer [permits custom map making and transfers to the GPS]. Color screen with excellent resolution that can be used in direct sunlight, fast screen redraws. Excellent accuracy [comparable to or exceeds other GPS' I have used/compared it to]. Can store and display a variety of maps, aerial photos, satellite photos, and charts [that can also be customized, I added portages and campsites for my Sept. trip]. I mounted it in a bike handlebar Ram Mounting to the footbrace in my canoe, so it did get wet, yet worked like a charm. Never lost track thru 6 days on the water [when I returned home I downloaded the track information to Topo 8 for a record of the trip].
This unit has a reputation in the GPS community of eating batteries, but I used 2 sets of 2 Energizer e Lithium AA for the 6 day trip [they are also lite enough to allow the unit to float] so I don't think it to be a problem. For those that Geocache, this unit is compatible with a full assortment of caching programs and is fully paperless.
