Great GPS unit, with a large bright screen, excellent for use in both bright and low light conditions. The camera is great when combined with the location data if using it for fieldwork or geocaching. The full GB map and EU topo maps make it easy to navigate along with the use of Garmin's Basecamp software make it easy to download walks and also pre-programme trails. The carabiner is a great accessory to attach to your sac so you'll not have to keep reaching in your bag at the most vital moments. Great purchase for anyone out in the field!
