This little beauty saved my husband and I from a VERY long walk out of a very difficult situation we recently had in the Australian bush. When the trail failed and so did the light, we set up tent on a 20% gradient forest saddle and hoped for morning to bring us to safety.
If it wasn't for this simple little devise we would have had a very hard time of pinpointing our position in a faceless terrain.
Well done little Garmin, with your help we knew where we were, and with your help we got to a water source and walked out.
one thing though - this devise is not a replacement for a compass, always take one along on your hikes (just-in-case).
