For the novice or the expert this is an awesome GPS unit. You get a ton of features for the price. It's the smallest and lightest weight GPS I have ever used and the price is amazing. The downside is the onboard built-in maps are not very detailed once you zoom in several times. I suggest getting a Topographical MicroSD expansion card to supplement the onboard maps.
