Mine worked fine whilst I had it. Bought it 2nd hand in a "never been used" condition off a mate and sold it 18months later as was surplus to requirements. Never missed a beat in that time

The Garmin equivalent would probably be the 60Cx , Oregon 400c (same as 300 but includes marine charts) or the ETrex Vista HCx which is a cheaper lighter version with better battery life then the 60Cx....

They all seem to be around the $600-800.

The main advantages to the Garmins I believe is that they have a much wider range of maps available.
