Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Small, cheap Nokia battery (BL5C) providing great battery life and easy to get a new battery.
Software provided, including serial number.
Great reception, fast.
Can be used as a USB GPS for a computer.
Car charger included. Nice google maps view of tracks, and .gpx export in software. Built in memory for logging tracks without a phone or computer.
Cons:
No display. Power button slides a little to easy, risk of accidental power off.
The mini USB is not a standard type, but a 5 pin. Downloading tracks works fine with a 4 pin, but changing settings requires 5 pin.
A little expensive.
Only chinese manual included.
Other:
http://bt747.free.fr/ is a open source software for this GPS.
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2704 is a cheap and small 5 pin adapter that works.
Bottomline:
Small, good reception, bluetooth. I like it!
