The mount on the bike is not useful and it keep sliding down

LI WING KEI, Amazon

  • Summary: The mount on the bike is not useful and it keep sliding down. Need something to add some friction to it But at last I mount it on the T-joint and it mounted good. Anyway it is the only mount that you can get. So no way not buying it.

Hard to Trust

Dane, Amazon

  • Summary: I must confess that I am accustomed to higher end Garmin handhelds costing much more so it's not a fair comparison. Still, I am disappointed. It's slow to start-up and lock on and when walking around it's wildly varying pointer does not instill confidence. I keep it clipped to my hunting backpack and use it as a plan B but I have never developed a confidence in it's ability to get me home.

  • Summary: This only marks point to point and gives mileage as the crow flies. You can only put in three points so don't go too far.

  • Summary: The compass isn't very accurate at pointing you back in the right direction. It's close enough I guess that you could find you way back.

It's pretty easy to use and a fun idea

AW, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: It's pretty easy to use and a fun idea, and does what it says it does. But the user guides and software are pathetic. Ultimately, trying to import the tracks I recorded failed miserably, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled the software repeatedly, and the memory got erased. The help function is useless. I got an error message from the beginning saying initialization failed, and there was no guidance anywhere about it. The user interface is very primitive.

not the best item to buy

Tom from Virginia, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: If you want accuracy....not the best item to buy. Many times it takes 20 or more minutes to get satelite readings. And changing batteries is a pain as the back is not too easy to remove. I guess for the money it's ok......but for the serious hunter spend the extra money and go Garmin or Magellen.

Simple and works when not near or in buildings

Not My Real Name "Really REALLY!", Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: The receiver is quite weak as it fails when I get close to my 4-story work building in suburban Silicon Valley. So, I imagine this is probably of no use in urban canyons like NYC, Tokyo, and parts of San Francisco.

Works somewhat

Richard Godin "CoyoteNoumea", Amazon

  • Summary: Could not get it to work the first time so I left it somewhere. Then found it again, changed the batteries and it worked since. But don't let your life depend on it ...
