I believe this bit of kit was probably rushed out to meet Christmas. It has a serious flaw, often failing to wake from "sleep" mode. As at Feb 11 a "Fix" is promised, but no date given. The unit has no screen lock, so every touch can move the map or make a menu entry. This means it can't be kept in a pocket without risk of losing your place. Mine also had a dud car-charger. Another more minor point is that it only works with "top = North". If you are used to a GPS that orientates to your track this will be confusing. On the postive side the mapping is bright and clear with a much larger screen than most competitors. With a bit more work this could have been a great unit. As it stands I can't recommend it for serious walkers. I think it would probably work for bikers, mounted on the handlebars.
