Active duty Army Infantry, very useful in the field/land nav. NVG mode was more necessary than expected on night movements. Multiple options and abilities with this garmin. Didn’t notice huge difference on performance for 401 though. Recommend screen protector as the screen may scratch easy under use.
Excellent bit of kit. Functionality is spot on for navigation.I have found it to be accurate within 7 metres. A really nice tool, considering the price.
Very intuitive to use once you get used to the function of the four buttons with almost every field customisable from a wide selection of values on each screen. The supplied "map" is very basic with little detail other than main roads and additional information can be quite expensive too. The strap works well and comes with an elastic extension so it can be worn over a glove or sleeve.
I really like this product and it’s ease of use. Self intuitive to easily figuring out the main features.
Use it for navigation in the desert on my motocross bike, and it does everything I need. Battery life very good as well! Definitely recommend!!
