Has anyone "early-adopted" this one yet?  It's probably too much to ask for Kirok to get this unit and give us another great review like he did for the Map62.  :D

I ran into somebody who was using the unit out in Alberta.
He was extremely happy about it.

I held it in my hands for a minute and this is my personal opinion:
- great if you want to use the unit both in the car and in the field
- great if you like to have a big screen
- very, very heavy when carrying in the field

Apart from the price itself, the weight would be a dealbreaker for me.
But I know that my dad, who wants a GPS for both the car and the field, and considers that the Oregon has a "minuscule" screen, would be delighted to have this unit.

So, it is a matter of priorities...
