    I read a good review on facebook from a nz hunting site but buggered if i can find it now! The only flaw i think from memory was the standard glass scratches easily so he recommend that you purchase the sapphire glass instead. Ive been considering getting one since they came out but havent bit the bullet yet.

    For what its worth, I have a Sunnto Ambit 3. I'm on my third one as they keep failing after 1-2 years. I'll be going for a Garmin Fenix 5 (or later) next.

    I've got the Fenix 5, didn't think I'd use the 5X mapping as I've already got a GPS & also maps on my phone, I'm not sure how well it would go in thick bush? The 5 has some basic navigation functions.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
