Although these devices have been around for a while now they have proven to be sturdy and reliable and still serve a useful purpose of a basic means to record where you are at and where you want to go to.
Easy to use and reliable. It only has about six control buttons / toggles on it. Takes two AA batteries that will last all day. Simple to use and doesn't take much explaining to others. Only supports six characters to name waypoints and a bit slow to toggle through the letters and numbers. Left one out in the sun and rain for a few weeks once and it was still working fine.
You need a separate map to take with it and also sometimes paper to write on to record co ordinates is easier sometimes.

I called Garmin Australia regarding this problem, they offered me a refurbished same unit for about half price, with 12month warranty but what's the point if the same thing will happen again in 4 or 5 years time, so I just stuck some grey gaffa tape over the buttons works good as gold, for now, anyway. just don't drop it in water. great unit apart from the rubber deterioration

Yes, the rubber will perish, generally over the side buttons most used, it is possible to purchase a silicone cover on Ebay for a few dollars (ex China) that protects the original rubber if used early, or if the buttons are already damaged, will protect the repair job quite well. My first unit (now a spare) has had this treatment.
Note that with the silicone cover on, the unit cannot be fitted into the RAM holder (if used).

When I try to plan a route, it first asks for country. Without letting me select uk, it goes straight to Germany or Netherlands. Why no uk?
