1) The waterproof paper (but I'm not sure why anyone needs that on a map of 1:660000 scale? Hardly a walking map?)
2) Index of Town names with grid reference.
3) Even Satellite imagery for Ecuador is not good for much of the country.

Bought this before I had a smart phone and even now it's WAY easier to read, uses the same software and apps and is an invaluable tool when travelling or just "searching" when in bed. Impressed with the performance. Battery life WAY better than smartphones.

Why a 4? Time will tell if it warrants a 5 but so far good. Also of note is that it's HALF the price of a smartphone.
