Summary: I am using mine when horseback riding....I just start it up and hang it on my horn.....easy to use.....neat to know how far you went and how fast you went and to look back on the rides. It is surprising when you see the map to see how far or close you are to other locations. In the woods it all looks the same!! I wish it had a bigger space for keeping the records of the rides. I have almost filled it up and will soon have to delete some on the computer.
Summary: It's very easy to operate this product. Good quality display, all necessery informations can be found. Value product for sensible sort of money. Mind there is no battery in a package (You will need 2buy 2xAAA). I did expect it 2 be a bit smaller but anyway im very happy with that purchase.
Summary: Does exactly what it says it does, this gps unit will give you a straight path back to the location you mark. the compass feature works well, only problem being that it can take a while to sync with the satalite after turning it on, and even longer if you're under heavy canopy. No big deal to wait for it though so for me, this was a handy little locator.
Summary: It is important to understand exactly what this device does and does not do. It works well for its designed purpose, but that may or may not be enough depending on what you are looking for. First, it does NOT display maps or show you where you are the way an automobile GPS would do. It does not have the capacity to route you to a specific destination.
Summary: First, while 'fewer' buttons is most of the time a 'good' thing, in this case the FEW buttons that are on there share too many functions...making it confusing and requiring constant manual refference until you get used to what the only four buttons on the unit do! Second, and more importantly to me was, try as I might, I COULD-NOT get either my PC NOR my laptop to make contact on-line with the support page for downloading and reviewing tracking info from this unit!
Summary: Works great, easy to set-up, looking forward to using it this coming hunting season. Very good for the price. Great value! Lightweight, not bulky, lanyard fits nicely around your neck so its easy to wear and get at to read. Compass component was really important.
Summary: But then I live here in San Diego, so I know it pretty well. I don't know, the thing seems pretty accurate to me, but I don't do much roughing it. Still, I'll make sure it's charged and ready next time I go camping, and the design is compact, lightweight, and seemingly rugged. If I'm ever lost in the woods with the Blair Witch chasing me, I'll be sure not to throw it in the river.
Summary: When I bought this it was $20 less than Amazon and now I Paid $10 more. 1. The Quick Start Guide is totally inadequate. 2. The online .pdf manual is inadequate. 3. The buttons are hard to press. 4. Many buttons have changing purposes, which are not clearly explained. 5. The online videos are incomplete and too short. I would not recommend this to a friend.
