That is actualy an ancient garmin GPS. No maps, but good for calibrating spedometers and not getting lost in the woods. just have to turn it on at the entrance, and then follow the lines back out.
Sometimes I get realy turned around when there are multiple intersecting trails. If I forget to turn it on until I'm already lost, the compas can be a nice feature too.
Cool. I downloaded an app called GPS copilot that actually downloads the map so it can be used offline. It also allows for some route planning though not really offroad....maybe in the desert out west
