Great Device I bought this device a few years ago ...
on 30 October 2017
I bought this device a few years ago for geocaching. Previously i had use the app on my phone which i found to be less accurate. The device allows you to set up different profiles. In my case i had one for hiking, geocaching and cycling.
The battery life depends on the amount of use. I have mine set on battery saving where the backlight timeout is 15 secs. This improves the battery life dramatically especially if you turn the backlight down to minimum. This is a disadvantage if you are thinking of using this for cycle navigation as you have wake the screen up every so often. I now use a Garmin Edge for cycling and my oregon for walking.
I use Garmin OS Maps on mine which are incredibly useful. I recently used this device to plot my route during my 150 mile 7 day hike. I did not use the device too much for navigation, only in times of uncertainty. With the battery saving settings, walking 8 hours a day, i managed to make the GPS last 2 days on one set of batteries.
I would highly recommend this device. It is ideal for hiking and geocaching, not so much for cycling. Perfect alongside Garmin basecamp computer software. Easy to use, rugged, waterproof and great value for money. The only improvement would be to extend battery life
