Handheld Garmin Sports Click-Wheel Nav, 3-D View, Topo ...

 

The name Garmin is synonymous with GPS, the way Q-Tip is synonymous with auditory hygiene. And the Colorado 400t doesn't let us down: Its light, curved

Unbeatable form factor. Click-wheel makes navigation more than effortless. Included carabineer means accidental drops are a rare occurrence. Preloaded topo maps preprogrammed with local haunts we're predisposed to frequenting. For free. Preposterous

Use that ‘biner — a drop of about 2 feet killed the power. Dig out your spare PC, as Mac software is lacking. Despite that road-lock feature, an average of 18-20 foot accuracy makes it disorienting and dangerous to use while driving

Great while it worked. Failed quickly. Ate expensive $4 batteries like M&M's. Required an external battery which means paying for another accessory, and why not get a fixed unit instead? This is the third Garmin device I've had ruined by a firmware...

Lots of good things about this device, but outweighed by the bad. Their customer service is horrible. I was passed around from person to person like a cheap ***** and then put in a long que. I'll never do business with them again

Poor battery life. Click wheel got gummed up and there is no way to clean it. Action is stiff and frustrating. Firmware update ruined the unit
