Its not useful for off road. Specially if you using in in an open Jeep. Dust will kill it quickly.

Mobile is better for Off road (still a compromise). With 2700 MAH AA cells + cell charges that runs off AA cells. I used Nokia N82 for 7 - 8 hours continuously.

DX units have just 1 hour (max) of battery backup. Not suitable if you have to trek.

Would work fine if you are going to use it only inside car with charger.




For Off road+ trking, I don't think there is any alternative to Garmin handhelds.
