Advantages: Trust worthy, very accurate and solid quality handheld GPS system
Disadvantages: the ammount you have to pay
Having completely drawn out all the negative factors of my other handheld GPS in the previous review, perhaps it`s time for me to take a more positive path and inform you that this handheld GPS system from Garmin, a newer model and better in every way, is a very trust worthy and dependable companion during hikes in mountain terrain and on any outdoor trip, and all though this higher quality naturally comes with a higher price, I would definately recommend this GPS as a really good product to make use of if planning on moving up into the mounttains and explore the magnificent nature, either in the U.K or the amazing Nordic mountain chains...
This handheld GPS is very touch and can take a lot of strain and extreme weather, I have used this device during extremely bad weather, both wind, rain and even snowfall... When having read the instructions and gotten a hang of using the device, it all appears logical and easy, however, it might take a while to learn all the information, buttons and manners on how to make this GPS function to its potential... You can use this device for any type of use, whether you enjoy going high up into the mountains or taking your bicycle onto the long road, this is a great helper in any case! That said, this is a device that will cost you rather a lot, as I paid 133.55 for the GPS and then adding to this the maps costing 99.99. This means that this isn`t a product you purchase unless you really have the need for it, and if you do, I would really recommend this model from Garmin. My Garmin works with a 2 GB card, allowing me to download lots of maps and software, which my elder model wouldn`t allow me... The accuracy and information of this device is splendid, I trust it completely to guide me from where I`m at to where I`m going...
Apart from the extremely high price, this product is flawless in my eyes, and I do recommend it to everyone wanting a handheld GPS to help them find their way in mountains as well as forests!
Summary: Quality comes with a cost
