The Out & Back is a huge unit and it’s also quite heavy. It operates on both buttons and touch-screen, so no trouble in gloves or even mitts, and it boasts an excellent Direction of Travel arrow as well as a small arrow on the mapping screen, making it easy to follow a route or move between waypoints. Data transfer is quite clunky as you need to remove the mapping card to get the PC to recognise the unit before downloading a GPX file into the right directory, but the biggest weakness is the screen resolution, which makes it debatable whether it’s worth investing in the optional OS mapping (UK 1:50000 in three regions at £100 per section).
