Summary: I am delighted with my purchase of a D-Tour GPS but must report this mount is absolute rubbish. The bar mount slips about the handlebar incessantly, the Velcro atttachment strap is incapable of holding the unit securely, and attaching and removing the unit is an exercise in frustration.
Summary: Hard to use. Not accurate. It is hard to read and I don't think it works that well. Used to try to find my car in a crowded lot (one of the suggested uses). It had me going all over the place. It is sitting in a drawer now, where it will remain.
Summary: took the gps to rome and it worked , as the directions and narrow streets are hard to navigate at night . it was easy to walk back to the hotel and any location to visit again was locked and breeze to visit the next day .
Summary: It is NOT a map navigation device. It is a tracking device and a device that will orient the user towards a previously marked target. It keeps track of the distance traveled, the rate of travel, the altitude, temperature, and it has a magnetic compass function. Trips are not displayed on a map on the device but are held in memory and can be displayed and shared as an overlay on Google maps when loaded into a program that is downloadable from a website dedicated to the...
Summary: I bought 2 of these and both are pretty much useless. Take a long time to get satellite fix even out in an open field. Anyone who gives this a 5 star rating has not used it but just turned it on. Took this to several places and tried it out. distance was way off and 50% of time if I had followed the direction it was pointing to I would never have made it back to the car.
How cheap to not send instructions and send to a web-site when it won't wor
4 July 2012
Summary: For Gods sake, send some instructions!!!!!!!!!! I don't want to go to a web-site to see how to operate it when it won't work indoors where my computer is located. How much does it cost to include some basic instructions, everyone doesn't have a computer and a printer.
Summary: If you think you can't get lost in the woods then I hope you have this before you find out otherwise. This is a simple device, takes standard batteries, and feels good in your hands. You can use it for general compass pathfinding and also to return to up to 3 waypoints/marked/saved in the device. Mind you, if you are in dense understory and can't get a GPS signal this isn't going to be much help.
Summary: I am not too enamored with this device. First, it takes forever to get a signal, somewhere between 2 to 9 minutes. More than once it has taken so long that the device turned itself off before getting a signal. A lot of walking can happen while the device figures out where it is. Second, the directional arrow is not good at small movements - it has sixteen points in 360 degrees it stops on, which translates to 22.5 degrees for an arrow change.
