Great Unit But Plan to Spend Time to Learn How to Use it Properly
6 January 2013
Summary: While it took a few tries to get the device to work as I wanted it to, I would recommend this GPS receiver to anyone who spends time hiking, running, biking or driving OHVs in remote areas. The "return to where you started" feature is easy to use and pretty accurate. The "mapping of your route" took a little time to figure out, but once you do, it works great. It is nice to be able to see things like elevation changes, distance traveled etc.
unit was not worth the money it cost To Bad great idea in a cheap package !

Summary: This unit is slow to connect to a satelite. The manual is hard to understand and proceedures are not well defined. The buttons are stiff and hard to get to next screen. The download program with maps is great but if you can't get the unit to start a trip then the cool software doesn't do you any good. Was not worth the money !!
Great GPS with some great little features... great for workouts!

Summary: If you are a big hiker or simply wanting to keep track of your runs, this is a must-have little gadget. It keeps track of your distance, mph and is VERY accurate. I love that it keeps the temperature and altitude as well; I use it in conjunction with Sparkpeople and I can easily figure out my calories burned. I love the built in compass too... my camping and hiking side is going to find MANY MORE useful aspects to this over the years.
Summary: Most electronics today have been overly engineered to the point that simple, fast use, means wading through multitudes of different programs and options. When hunting or simply wandering through wooded county parks all I need is where am I parked, where am I going, and after wandering through dense woods haphazardly what is the direction to return to my orgin and how far is it.
