Summary: Even if it is half the price of a Garmin, just save your money and put'm towards the leader. Why does the aviation industry uses Garmin? Why the oil exploration industry in the most remote places of Alaska uses Garmin?

Excerpt: Even though Cobra had to replace two GPS 100s under warranty, I still rate this unit with four stars. It takes a little time to understand some nuances about it, but once you do, it's quite an instrument.
Summary: I bought this unit to start goe-caching. So-far I have found it to be as accurate as any other brand providing, as the manual says, I have a "clear view of the sky". I have checked its positioning against every cache I have found so far and it is typicaly within 2 or 3 meters.
Summary: WATERPROOF AND ACCURATE TO WITHIN 10 FEET! **WE RECOMMEND THIS ONE** *ONE OF THE BEST WE'VE SEEN ON THE PLANET* If your hiking, boating, or on a road trip, you can find your way with the GPS100 global positioning system from Cobra.
Summary: DON'T BUY IT If cost is the issue buy a cheap Garmin brand gpsr. I naively bought this model when I got introduced to geocaching last spring, thinking I'd buy a cheap gps receiver in case I didn't like the sport. This device has many flaws.
Summary: I have used several GPS units (Cobra, Garmin, Magellan) and this is, by far, the worst of the bunch. Same problems as others have noted: no signal on a clear day in the middle of a field, lost contatct with satellites on a regular basis, HIGHLY inaccurate for both direction and elevation, and the...
Summary: First let me say that I'm not one of those GPS users who expects to have a signal everywhere I go. After all, these satellites are miles above the earth floating in space! So while I expect to lose signals every now and then I don't expect to never receive them.
