- Sunlight readable display is fabulous. I wish all laptops and nav screens in cars looked like this. Also, adjusting the backlight is super easy which you want to do regularly in actual field use.
- User interface is mostly good and intuitive (* see below). Considering how many features are in the product, pretty good design.
- Packaging is excellent. Unlike phones, this unit is actually rugged. Buttons are in the right place, Battery door and belt strap work well, etc.
OK, now for the bad news:
(1) It crashes. I read other reviews but figured that had to be fixed by June 2016. Nope. The trip computer will simply cease functioning, except for its clock. No amount clearing this and that and unlocking fields fixes this problem. It's batteries out, wait, and also factory reset. Then, you lose your settings. Garmin makes avionics products. I can say I would never put a Garmin unit in my plane, if I had one. In a high-end product like this there is no excuse for it to crash.
(2) Setting preferences for the trip computer is essentially impossible without reading the manual and practicing. Unlike most else, this is 100% non-intuitive. The + button doesn't add fields; the - button doesn't remove fields. One wrong guess and you have just deleted everything. You really need to have instructions available, on the unit, with a ?? key to get to them. That, or redo the interface for trip computer completely.
(3) Elevation does not work. Really. Typical (not average) error is more than 30 feet. Worse, total ascent and total descent are so far off that dead reckoning is more accurate. On a short loop hike it had 620 feet up and 850 feet down. Repeating the same loop was even worse.I did calibration twice, and it ignores that almost immediately. And, this is with 7 satellites in view! Come on guy, there has to be a fix this. You can't even get the elevation the same for the same spot.
(4) It remembers only one trip computer results. If that. This is nuts. A real hiker wants to compare morning to afternoon and day-to day. You store 10,000 waypoints (For whom, Lewis & Clarke?) but not even a single trip. You could have little trip selection screen, like you do for waypoints.
* I got 6-8 hours from one set of alkaline batteries. CARRY EXTRA BATTERIES. Rechargeable batteries are probably a bad idea if you want to get one full day of hiking. Keep the display light OFF.
* Turn on lock-display always. The touch screen is sensitive and the unit will wander off into the most bizarre menus if you don't. No matter where you put it, the screen will think there are touches.
* Take some time to learn the unit. You can customize just about any display.
* The computer and download map interface is very funky. Just so you know.
* Crashes regularly. The trip computer is effectively worthless because it crashes before, during or after each trip. How am I sure that the unit has "crashed?" Well--full batteries, bright display, nothing works, cannot even turn off.
First let's take a look at the offerings. The 600, 600t, 650, 650t. If it is a 600, then it is without camera. If it is a 650, then it is with a camera. Add the t for included 1:100k topo maps. The pick of the litter is the 650 and here's why:
The built in camera allows you to take pictures with an IPX7 waterproofed camera. Keep your phone safe so you can make calls another day. The photos are also Geotagged so you can see where they were taken later. The camera is also very good -- on par with an iPhone. So for $80 more you get a pretty good waterproof camera. But wait -- there's more. It also comes with the rechargeable battery pack so you can charge the unit with the batteries installed and it comes with 3.5GB of storage instead of 300MB.
The 6xxt models aren't worth it to me. First the 1:100k map isn't routeable, second it won't work on your computer with basecamp unless your GPS is plugged in to your computer, third for the price you can buy excellent 1:24k maps for your area that are routeable, and have much more detail, and will work with your computer and other devices without installing -- get the DVD. If you don't want the routing and just want 1:100k detail -- then just buy the DVD. There are even free maps available that will get you 1:24k, but they do not have elevation data for 3d view/route profile.
I got this to replace my old eTrex venture Cx. It's not even worth comparing them as this is much more readable in sunlight, the touchscreen is as responsive as an iPhone. I use it for mountain biking, road biking, day sailing, and hiking and it works well with just about everything I have. The GPS has been responsive under canopy, but I haven't had a chance to try canyons. I will try to get more data on that with GLONASS enabled as well.
Where does it fall short? The basecamp mobile application is pretty weak. I'd like it if it had the full Garmin Connect support that the Edge 510 and 810 have. For example it'd be nice if people could monitor me while I'm out and about and it'd also be nice for my "workouts" to be easily uploaded to connect from my phone. I wish I could send a route to my GPS from my computer and have it download to my GPS via my phone.
I didn't have the issues the first reviewer had downloading -- again -- I suggest buying the DVDs as they will work without having the device tethered and they work on multiple devices as well.
UPDATE: ANT+ transfer to computer (Garmin ANT Agent) or Android is not supported (same as all other eTrex/Oregon devices). However, USB upload is possible from Android as long as your device supports USB Host and you have the appropriate cable. I used "Uploader for Garmin" from the Play Store.
