Road GPS unit for hiking...

 

Well after my nuvi 500 took a couple tumbles from my bike, I decided to use the second bike mount that didn't see action on my bike on my back pack's frame.

The only way that it's going to see dirt now is if I go down, and if I'm going down, screw the nuvi! wink

How do you like the 500?

for off-road stuff like biking, and also on the road for driving? I was thinking of getting it for my next model.

How do I like the 500

So far, it's great. I've used it myself for driving, riding (on road, literally...), and hiking. My buddy who suggested I get this model uses his for boating as well. (21 foot Yamaha jet boat, day trips almost exclusively) I'm extremely pleased with it. The removable battery is good for over 6 hours between charges, and the screen is bright and of decent size. My only beef is with the paltry lack of an intricate instruction manual. The thing is a ten page, glossy, Fischer-Price looking thing. Granted, I didn't need it to use the device, but I want to exploit this thing to no end. wink I'm finding I have to overcome some boundaries by trial and error...

How do you see it?

If it's on your back, does this mean you need a partner in the back to tell you where to turn?
