Strengths:    Ease of use, accuracy, full color maps, programmable data fields.

Weaknesses:    Smallish screen for maps but thats why its light

Bottom Line:   
I use this unit for all types of outdoor activities including mountainbiking. It is nice and small on the handlebars.I love it for training purposes. When uses with a computer you can track progress and improvement down to the finest detail. Total climb, average speed, moving vs total time and put them in programmable fields so you can keep track while riding to improve pacing. Also using map function you can set up your favorite rides into tracks and set laps. When paired with a computer you can download and create custom maps. I have installed alot of local topo maps and some grouos even have created downloadable overlays of their trail systems. You can also map your favorite unmapped trails. Battery life is pretty good even when using generic AA's. Water/weatherproof makes this a good unit for our use too. Garmin's handlebar mount seems flimsy but the unit is pretty light and I havent had any trouble yet
