If It Were Possible To Still Get Maps For This. It Would Be Amazing.
This GPS is the ONLY one I have ever seen to have Sirius XM built in. I mainly bought this just for the Sirius XM and it does a very good job running the Sirius XM Radio! But on the other hand. the GPS is just plain crap. Bushnell no longer supports this and you cant even get maps or 3d satellite images for it anymore! But it is rugged and waterproof and as far as the GPS Goes. It does tell you your speed and is very accurate at that. and it also has a trip odometer and it is good at that as well. The only major thing is the Bushnell maps, if they WERE Still available. This would be the BEST GPS Ever! But, sadly. I cant find them anywhere...

not very good.. would not buy again.
THE FOLLOWING IS A COPY OF SOMEONE ELSE REVIEW, BUT I COULD NOT HAVE SAID ANY BETTER. Regrettably, the Onix experience was highly unfavorable. I do not understand how or why Bushnell, a company whose other sporting products have such a sterling reputation, could put out such a poor product. I can only imagine that the absolute wrong person got put in charge of product development for it, and there was no serious QA or market research done. Where to begin? I suppose the unit itself. While the screen is large, it is easily damaged and the resolution is fairly low. The processor inside of the unit is woefully underpowered and the display programming makes no use of memory windowing techniques -- thus loading more than a few of the bitmap overlay maps into the unit drags its scroll speed down to a frustrating crawl as it had to shift all of them around at once. The base map that underlies the overlays is absolutely terrible, and virtually unusable for all but the most general direction-finding. Had Bushnell licensed even the cheapest and most incomplete base map from any other GPS manufacturer, it would have been better. I contacted their customer service about it and they said there is no plan to upgrade or offer a replacement for the base map. The process of finding, downloading and installing map overlays from the Bushnell site to the actual unit is tedious, numbing and frustrating. Why didn't they provide -- even as a separately-purchasable option -- all the maps for the USA and Canada on a CD or DVD? Why this broken, frustrating, slow web site? How are people who are out in the field supposed to make use of it, if they wind up going outside of their planned area? I'd gladly have paid $100 extra at the time of purchase for such a CD, just to be able to have it with me and be able to use it in the field -- and I think I'm not alone. How many people will make 100 $1 downloads from their site? They'd wind up making a whole lot more money and having a lot less unhappy customers. There is also no backwards integration via USB to the laptop. Why not have an matching application on the PC, such as the Bushnell GPS PC Companion and make that a full-featured GPS client with as many features as a Garmin or more -- using the handheld GPS to feed it positioning and weather data? No such simple, forward ideas were apparently present at Bushnell when this unit was being made. As to the XM radio, I'd rather get a dedicated portable unit than have it built into my GPS. The weather tracking is an interesting feature that I can see the value of but the need for a subscription is annoying. At the price point of this premium GPS unit, it should have come with a free lifetime subscription to XM Weather. There is so much more that could have been done with the unit, through creative programming if nothing else, that it's disappointing. The fact that Bushnell really seems to have given up on the unit (that's the sense I get when talking to their bored customer support reps) and nothing new is really happening or planned for the unit just goes to show that they see it as a failed product and have gone on to other things instead of trying to improve and make the unit better through downloadable upgrades -- even simple ones, like replacing the abysmal base map. I could go on and on with more complaints, but why waste your time? I strongly recommend NOT BUYING this unit. Read full review

If you are looking for the best off road GPS this is the one for you.
For the cost this is a fabulous GPS. The display is large and well lighted for reduced light conditions. In full sunlight I turn off the backlight to conserve battery power. It if fully readable in full direct sunlight. This is a GPS for any activity EXCEPT highway or road use. If you want a GPS to get you to or from a location DON'T buy this one. It does display highways, major roads, and a number of landmarks (hospitals, airports etc.) which you can use to orient yourself. It also has most state and federal parks including hiking trails. It is designed for hiking, hunting and other off road uses. There are so many features that can be customized you can't begin to discuss them in a review. The reason I bought this unit was for the XM weather subscription. With a onetime activation fee I got XM weather including NEXRAD, local U.S. cities weather, clouds, and lightning detection. The subscription was around $12 per month. That is a about a third of the least expensive XM weather for aviation units. During the off season you can suspend your subscription without any charges and restart it without any activation fee. This also is not possible with the aviation units. The unit is well built and rugged. I gave my son one of these and he uses it with his son for geocaching. Bushnell has now discontinued selling aerial and topo maps. I didn't use this feature because of the expense and there didn't seem to be any value for me. I think Bushnell has discontinued this unit. Read full review

Outdated, Unit and Map Updates Discontinued Since 2008
The Onix 400 was discontinued, and the ability to update was stopped in 2008. Owners are now unable to update maps at all. If you are looking to purchase an Onix 400, the best you will find is a unit with maps only 6 years old sold by someone who updated it right before Bushnell stopped its online map download service. If you are looking at a new unit, the maps could be as old as 2000, and you will not be able to update them. This was an ok piece of equipment when it was new - it was not amazing for sure. Out of the box, the display was not quite bright enough to read in bright sunlight, and a lot of the menus are counter intuitive. If this product truly holds any value now (I doubt it), it is rapidly approaching $0.

Get what you pay for
Downsides -Clumsy menu's, large, heavy and awkward stature. -Near impossible navigation of website for uploading maps. -The lanyard attaches from the top of the unit, when walking you must detach it to comfortably read. -Very very slow map browsing. Cursor speed is almost agonizing. Positives -Awesome battery life (3 full days of walking through the bush) -Waterproof (unintentionally tested) -Largest screen of any GPS i've ever used -Satellite Weather is handy tool but need to subscribe All in all it is a good BUDGET gps but if i could do it again I think i would spend the little extra and buy a Garmin.
