Da military Frenchie, December 29, 2009 Some of the boys I work with (military ones) bought some of
these and they aren't too pleased with this unit. It has a
BIG screen indeed, but that feature alone chews batteries
in no time. Plus, you just can't see anything from it in
broad day light. The screen is dark compared to some other
units we've owned and tested in the field.
And just so you all know, if you ever clip the thumb wheel
out of its socket and you get any grit, sand, water or
anything else in there, your GPS is toast!! We've seen it
twice already. The poorly design allows you to pop the
thumb wheel way too easy (if you own one, try it and you'll
see), allowing anything contaminants to enter the GPS and
turning it into a very cool expensive door stopper or a
rear view mirror bling-bling.
If you want the best of the best from Garmin, for outdoor
use, in any terrain and weather, with the best features and
military worthy, go with the GPSMAP 60Cx or 60CSx.
You won't be disappointed!
smomofo, October 19, 2009 I bought a Colorado 400t to replace my Legend HCx so that I
could do paperless caching and save money on ink for my
printer. Aside from paperless caching, the Legend HCx is a
better unit. The Legend has a much better user interface,
and is much better with indicating direction to a waypoint.
And with the way Colorado goes through batteries, I'm
spending any money it saved on printer ink. All in all, not
worth the money.
William, September 11, 2008 Purchased the 400t. The wheel fell off during my first day
rendering it useless. Earlier in the day the unit froze up and I
could not backtrack. Gramin replaced the unit but now the topo maps
do not work and the unit still freezes up. This unit is a piece of
Jerry Brown, February 29, 2008 I received one of these units about two weeks ago and have had a chance to check it out. The unit has Mapsource topographical maps pre-installed. That product is not, and never has been a road navigation system. I also purchased the Mapsource North America roads on SD card, and that works perfectly in the unit for navigating with a car. I haven't had any problems with this GPS at all. It is super-sensitive and receives a signal in very obstructed terrain. The thumbwheel selector takes a bit of getting used to, but it works great and greatly reduces the number of buttons required. The unit seems more rugged than a 60, and the case design will probably prove to be very waterproof.
My only negative would be that it seems to be fairly power hungry and won't go as long as a 60 series on a set of batteries.
