Pete, November 7, 2012 Very easy to use. Exactly what I was looking for.
JD, October 26, 2012 After reading the great info on GPS City I bought the 450T
to replace my Etrex Legend C that I use on horsback and
ATV. The 450 screen is not as bright but livable IMO.
Love the touchscreen compared to the Legend buttons and
toggle. Some have said the touchscreen windows require too
many steps to accomplish various tasks. I find it quicker
because each window is so explanatory. With the Legend I
often had to back up a step due to pressing the wrong
button or accidently toggling up or down when I wanted to
just depress the toggle straight down. So far it appears
the mapping that comes with the 450T is adequate. Overall
I really like all the new features, my only complaint is,
unlike my old Legend C, you have to buy or download
additional mapping if you want to plan a route down any
streets, roads or trails even though the roads/trails show
on the 450T's maps. No excuse for that. Of course once you
go to an area, you can leave and keep a track which then
can be used as a route.
loes, July 25, 2012 no manual ????
For first time users it is a pain to get started.
gizmoman, March 24, 2012 I bought this unit for its custom maping abilities as well
as the advanced track/route management compared with my
Nuvi 500. I am not sure if the built-in topographic
mapping is really of much use, as it isn't very detailed
and you can download 24k maps for free from the internet.
It does allow the unit to show the terrain in 3D mode which
is very cool, however. (I don't know if that feature will
work with the free, downloadable maps.) The unit is easy
to use and the menus make sense. Everything I've tried to
do with the unit has worked with no frustration (install
maps, save/upload tracks and routes, and make my own custom
maps.) The custom map feature is a cool one, as it allows
you to insert a highly detailed map of a park (for example)
right on top of the built-in map, so all the trials,
service areas, etc. show up and are fully GPS-able within
the unit. You also have the abilty to use satellite
imagery, but I have not used this feature. It runs for
hours and hours on rechargable AA batteries with the screen
on and the backlight at full.
