Using the Garmin GPSMAP 66 in the Field

I have a GPSMAP 66s, but what I have to say here applies to the 66st as well- the only difference between the models is that the 66st adds Garmin Topo maps. I prefer to load my own maps from gpsfiledepot.com, which are more detailed than Garmin's 100K maps and are free. So, when I refer to the GPSMAP 66 below, I mean both models.

Before I get started, let me say that the positives in this unit far outweigh the negatives, at least for my use. The core function, that of locking onto satellites and determining your position, is significantly improved over the already excellent GPSMAP 64 series.

Garmin nüvi 55 and 65 Series

Garmin nuvi 55

New for 2014, the Garmin nuvi 55 series features a 5-inch screen at a very low price. The nuvi 55 gives your all the most important features- dual-orientation display, detailed maps of the 48 states plus Hawaii, lane assist, faster search, map display of nearby points of interest, speed limit, current speed, estimated arrival time, and school zone warnings.

The nuvi 56 adds maps of Alaska and Canada. The LM models feature free lifetime maps, and the LMT version have free lifetime maps plus free lifetime traffic.

The nuvi 65 and 66 models have the same features in a larger, 6-inch screen.
