Consumer review by:

Great for geocaching with exceptions, bad for car navigating.

 

If you don't need a magnetic compass and barometric pressure, this is an excellent GPSr for geocaching and hiking.  If you are using rechargable batteries, you may want to bring an extra set. I used lithium batteries with good results.  Takes a while...
