CANT GO WRONG WITH THIS UNIT GOOD BIT OF KIT AND EASY TO USE
great unit small ,well featured, easy to use and with a 2 gig Micro SD card all the memory you need to put on Topo UK the mapping is a stripped down version of the OS type giving basic landmarks such as rivers roads tracks contours and easy to read plenty of POIs even my local Cafe' runs on AAs so you can use 2800mAh Ni-MH and it will run from the USB port but it wont charge from it.
well lets see its water resistant not waterproof it will sink if used with Ni-Mh batteries and you cant charge said batteries from its USB port but you can run the device using the FREELOADER solar psu and with a wind up torch with phone charger adapter you have a perfect PSU to run it forever so to speak now why didnt Garmin think of that? oh yea you have to build it yourself and mod the torch.at least it has AAs so worse case you use the ones you always carry as spare
as my teacher used to say Could do better but not for a while yet pretty much a good all rounder and only the odd niggle to put it down
