A great GPS unit 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: dharmasoldat, 2007-04-11

A barebones unit that is kickass for reception, and even better when paired with a lightweight (60g) high-gain external antenna. I've gotten reception with this puppy when friends' units have gone long since dead. Durable as anything else on the market, and even got a chance to test out the waterproofing. Bomber.

If you don't mind a little extra weight, this bad boy will serve you well with dynamite reception - which is the key to a good GPS. Without reception, why bring it?
