Portability meets capability in the pocket-sized Garmin Quest™. This easy-to-use unit is loaded with the high-end navigation features from our most popular GPS navigators, and best of all, it's portable. So, you can use it in multiple vehicles — or slip it in your pocket for handy street-level directions when you're navigating on foot.

From salespeople to summer vacationers, Quest's features are sure to please:

* Automatic routing with turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance to get you where you're going
* High-speed processor means fast automatic off-route and detour recalculation
* Rechargeable internal lithium-ion battery that provides up to 20 hours of use
* USB data connection for fast map downloads from Garmin's entire line of MapSource DVDs
* 256-color, bright, sunlight-readable display makes it easy to view turn-by-turn instructions and map detail

Smaller than a standard television remote, the Quest provides an ample screen viewing area, but it won’t demand a lot of room on the dashboard or in the briefcase. The unique antenna folds flush with the unit when not in use and users can connect an optional external antenna as well.

The unit ships with fully unlocked MapSource® City Select® DVDs, which provide full coverage of the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico (North America version) or major metropolitan areas throughout Western Europe (Europe version). For weekend warriors who want to use the unit on a camping or fishing trip, the Quest is waterproof and fully compatible with the entire line of MapSource outdoor cartography. With 115 megabytes of internal memory, this small-but-powerful GPS navigator has plenty of built-in map storage. So, in a pocket or on your dash, Quest gives you the freedom to travel light — with lots of map detail at your fingertips.

Comments: Actually it's the Quest 2 and I recommend it for city, but not necessarily for the backwoods although Garmin would sell you differently! One of the best I have found for backwoods is the 60 csx!

Comments: Yet again my unit is not listed. I'm running GPS II (old style you have to use in conjucntion with a topo map) Yet again its never failed me in the 13 years I've had it. If anything its more accurate since they lifted the 100 ft diameter scrambler that the gov use to use.

Price: $325.00
Pros: Small form-factor means you can take it with you (dont leave a gps in your truck--it wont last cause thieves will take it)
Cons: Not as accurate and easy to use as some of the $1000+ units.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love the Quest. It is small enough to carry in a pocket and yet it has enough memory to take you cross-country! Voice prompts make warning and instructions a snap! You can customize everything from the voice itself to the splash screen with the Garmin free downloads. External antenna connector means improved accuracy and reliable signal during storms and while under overpasses, etc. WAAS is a plus! Best bang for the buck and easy to use.
