Is anyone using one? Amd if so how is it? I am thinking of getting a new GPS. And this is in my price range. I can go a tad higher. But so far liked the reviews on this one so far.

We won one at the Mega in Rosthern last year and tried it a number of times. It seemed pretty accurate, and it is paperless, however it does not have capacity for detailed maps, an SD card, or much more than a few hundred caches. Every time we tried loading anywhere near its rated capacity of 500 caches we always got the low memory warning. It is also slower to load than any of the other GPSr's we used like the Oregon 200, Oregon 450, GPSMap60CSX or the GPS Map 62ST. Having said all that, it is pretty cheap to buy and is probably pretty good value for its cost. We do carry it loaded as a back-up unit on a caching excursion.

Thanks! I will look into the Oregon as well. I appreciate the input.
