Summary: There are certainly many opinions about this device, and the reviews all range from poor to excellent. I think I can understand why there is such a broad range. First of all I think it's important to understand that even though this product has a "compass" feature it doesn't really have a hardware based magnetic compass.
Summary: This is not the GPS for serious backpackers, deep in the outback. But...if you have routinely lost your car in big parking lots, or if you are visiting a new city and are trying to find your way back to your hotel, or even if you do some moderate hiking in unfamiliar areas, then this is just enough.. All you get is a pointer telling you what direction, and how far to go, and in a lot of everyday cases that's all you need.
Summary: When I first received this item, I LOVED IT! My biggest concern was tracking kills in the evening and getting turned around in the woods. The first time I used this, I marked my deer stand, climbed down and tracked my kill through the woods after dusk had settled in. After finding the deer I was able to mark the deer and find my way back to my stand and make my way out of the woods. All in the pitch black dark! Fantastic, no more getting turned around again in the woods!
Summary: The delivery was great as usual but the product has little or no instructions on the different functions, not even on the internet. Will think twice before purchasing a product like this again on line.
