Does anyone have one and what do you think of it? I have a PN-60 and was looking at one of these, but hear bad things about it.
Thanks

Bad Things!? I just bought one (62s). It only took me an hour to get going. I also still have the (60Csx) that I will uses as a go along. I looked at the P60 but didn't like the screen size, but I loved all the features. It would be really neat if someone came up with a unit thar had the best of all the units out there.

Mine should be here Monday. By bad things, I heard there was a squeek when you hit the buttons.
Thanks

that little squeek is the money you saved from switching to Garmin.

How do you save money? You have to buy the maps. Delorme they are free.
Thanks

I never bought maps for my Garmin,

http://garmin.na1400.info/routable.php

Worldwide routeable maps to download free. I have over 1/2 of the US on my 550 on the SD card, and still have plenty of room to add more.

Then where are you saving money? They are a lot more money than Delorme? Did you ever have a Delorme?
Thanks

Have never had one, but have geocached with people that have had them, Actually both units are very good. There seemed to be a bit of a learning curve with it, but I did like the unit. I do like the touch screen of the 550 though, less buttons means less chance of water sneaking in the unit. I have used the unit in the rain with no problems.

Everyone has their own favorite Delorme vs. Garmin is like the Packers vs. Bears.

I have had the Oregon 300, 450, Dakota 20, vista 60csx and delorme pn-20, 40 and 60. I did not like the touch screen. A 3 axis compass is a must and I like the layout of the delorme and 62s. As far as price garmin is more. I love new tech items and do a lot of trading and selling to do so.
Thanks
