Thanks Stephroll,
All the smart phone battery won't last long and I can't accept any scratch on my smartphone.

BTW, I still using BB just because I don't have to charge it for days.

Also not water proof, shock resistant, low battery life, poor offline mapping, hard to read in the sun, GPS receiver arguably much poorer in general... the smart phone is not the answer to everything.

I have a Dakota 10 I got from blacks for $50 AR when they cleared out their GPS units and have used it a bunch of times out in the middle of nowhere and it's been awesome.

That $50 Dakota 10 deal ranks up there as one of the all time best RFD deals. I don't use mine that often, as I've got other handheld GPS's but it was a heck of a deal.

Is this really worth it compared to the Garmin 450 for $200 at Costco? From what I can tell I get a lousy camera and more routes/waypoints.

You beat me to it. That Garmin Oregon 450 for 200$ at Costco is a hot price for this type of GPS.

For Hiker, Weight load matters.

But the Garmin 450 from Costco is really a good price.

No. The one from Costco at 200 $ is a much better deal. Unless you really need the camera, which is not a good one.
