GPS for multiple uses

 

The set up was very easy. I like to Geocache, so no problems with downloading the point information. Good for several uses such as hiking, biking and other outdoor activities. Plus the price less expensive than other retailers.

Great GPS for geocaching

 

Overall so far it seems to be a great unit. Great satellite reception even under dense tree cover, and quick startup.

Great GPS on land or water.
