The maps downloaded from garmin mapsource take only a minute or two to download when they used to take 20-30 minutes on my old garmin map 76.
It fits easily in a shirt pocket and very easy to use with one hand. It is small and light enough to take with you wherever you go. I also like the calculator and calendar function. It even has games.
Although battery life is rated at 14 hours, I have gotten almost 24 hours with 2500 MaH NiMH rechargable batteries. The usb cable it comes with will power the unit when connected to the computer and I got a cigarette lighter adapter to use in the vehicle.
This is a great little unit and the quick service
from Tigergps was an extra bonus.
