In Cobras defense

M. Schroeder, Amazon
21 June 2007
  • Summary: Whats going on with the poor reviews? I bought this and have been overwhelming delighted with it. No, it's not top of the line, but worth more than the selling price. It works great! Accurate to within a few feet thanks to the WAAS feature. Geocaching is a blast!

Cannot be compared to a Garmin.

SA, Amazon
8 June 2007
  • 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?

Don't waste your time...

Teach, Amazon
7 June 2007
  • 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...

Living up to my expectations.

M Neill, Amazon
26 April 2007
  • 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.

No signal!

8 April 2007
  • Summary: There is no signal. I got this unit for geocaching. In this "sport", you must have precise accuracy. Most of the time the accuracy reading is 40 feet or worse. This unit claims to have accuracy to within 10 feet.

Too Bad

briar51, Amazon
17 February 2007
  • Summary: I am new to the GPS user world and had high hopes for this unit. Its primary use was going to be simple for hunting & hiking help. I have read several negative reports that describe fairly accurately the same troubles I have.

4 of 5 reviews were right...

Matt, Amazon
19 October 2006
  • 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.

GPS loses signal and cannot reacquire

Amazon
14 October 2006
  • Summary: This is one of the worst GPS units I have used. The keys are not intuitive, the battery cover does not fit correctly (how can it be IPX7 water resistant compliant as advertised?), the unit loses GPS lock, when GPS lock is lost it cannot reacquire it.
