Well worth the price tag!So, I am current serving military and had hunted for a product like this. I bought it end Feb 2017 loaded it with custom maps and birds eye then took it on a 3-month exercise. The ability to use custom loaded maps made in an asset. The map loading software is kind of difficult, but once you get the hang of it you can load anything you want. Even loaded pictures I took of maps and it was fairly accurate.
The rechargeable battery easily last 8+hrs on full bright, and I got 26hrs straight when I started to adjust the brightness down. The count down timer for battery life is great, but only available when using the internal battery and not AA. It easily switched to AA's. I found with alkaline AA it didn't last nearly as long, but lithium you got the minimum 8-9hrs on max bright.
It is kind of bright when used at night, I used a piece of fabric sometimes over it when the need for total darkness was required. Though bystanders told me it was no brighter then normal ambient light from our vehicles. The screen was large and easy to see in all environments I put it through. Even off angles when two of us used it at the same time it was easy to read.
This GPS held out the 3 months no problem in the worst weather. It went from 3ft of snow and -26C (battery didn't last as long then), to drenching 3-day rain storm, to +20C and sunny. It was dropped off the vehicle a few times, tossed around in a bag for a bit and covered in mud. It has a few rub marks on the screen, but nothing major. I would recommend if putting it through this kind of stress a screen protector might be in order.
It was a lot to put out for a GPS money wise. I wish I had waited, as I see its even cheaper now. Though I am glad I have it. For my personal life, it is mounted in my overland F250. I have sense bought the turn by turn North America, and will try it out for day to day life. I like the fact that I can have it charging in the cradle using it in the truck, then if needed remove it and use it as a handheld or if you have more mounts like I do you can mount it on an ATV or such and not worry about the elements. If your trip goes a little long, simply pop out the Garmin battery and throw in 3 AA. Then the multiple mapping options you have is epic, down to a picture you took of that “secret” fishing hole a guy drew on a napkin… it can get loaded too.
All in all I think it was well worth the money! Only wish I bought it at its current price and saved a $100 or so!!
