This unit is for the person who likes to go walking. You can store waypoints such as, where you parked, camped and pubs etc. You can name the waypoints and see where you are in relation to any of them. The unit will not give you any road mapping detail so it is not really designed for road navigation. Although should you have a laptop you can get this for about £120 and a data cable for around £30 and then use something such as auto route to have street level navigation. Software used on the laptop would depend on how useful and detailed that type of navigation would be. But you can use this as just the reciever unit for the GPS signal at a very affordable price.
The unit is limited in that it can only have one route on it at a time but you can have multiple way points within that route. You can reverse a route at the click of a button to get back to your starting point and the unit will also tell you how far you've gone and how long travelled.
As with all garmin units you have the great technical support from their team and the unit will also give you latitude and longitude positioning so you can get a grid reference.
I'd recommend this unit ony to someone who wants to use it for out back walking not for someone who wants in car navigation.
