I like the size and functionality. Some of its menus are extremely counterintuitive, and the manual is not much help. In particular, if you want to compose a novel text, the scrolling is tremendous as you travel from A to Z, one letter at a time. However, I was able to send text messages when I had no cell service, and that's what I wanted. Have not had to use the SOS feature yet, but anticipate that feature could be helpful. The Garmin interface actually seems to work well.
