"Great at what is is designed for..."4.0 starson
Pros: Ease of use - my 8 year old learned how to use it in 15 minutes.
Accurate - next to my much more expensive GPS the coordinates are spot on in sync.
Durable - did I mention I bought this for an 8 year old, and a 10 and an 11 year old.
Price is good.
Cons: Lack of road routing capability.
Summary: This is an amazing product for the price and for what it was built for, Geocaching. If you want a full feature GPS this shouldn't even make your list to compare. It could be updated via firmware to do those things but why should Magellan make this unit compete with its own more expensive models? They have built an excellent GPS and given it a very accessible price point. The ease at which even my 8 year old daughter learned to use it shows the effort Magellan put into its design. And durable. This thing is built well, that is all there is to that. Magellan even gives you free software from their website that you can use to hook this GPS up to a laptop or netbook and turn it into a full function GPS. The four star rating from me is because it is not the Swiss Army knife of GPS devices out of the box. The software and tools to make it great should be on a disc in the box or a file on the internal storage that can be installed and used without searching the web to learn about what else the device can do.
