Summary: Purchased the delorme PN20 from walmart.com. Outside and with wide-open sky the PN20 would show a track of several hundred yards, wandering up to a half mile while sitting on a wall. I tried it out along the Arkansas river- again wide open area, and the PN20 would lose reception.
Summary: I purchased this item solely for my Geocaching adventures. I was drawn to this model because I had heard very good things about the Delorme brand GPS for Geocaching. Pretty much everyone said good things about it on the Geocaching site.
Summary: This is the first gps i have owned. I have used many other units but found this one meets my needs. I use it for Geocaching and hunting. The maps that come with the unit are the best I have seen. The capabilities of the unit make it a very good value. This unit has far exceeds my expectations.
Summary: Owners manua/ instructions are some of the worst I have ever encountered. No logical order. Assumes intimate knowlede of the product straight out of the box. After 16 frustrating hours of trying to select and load maps I boxed it up and returned it.
Summary: I gave this GPS an Excellent rating because if you are expecting more than this for Walmart's price ($147), you probably won't ever be happy. The GPS comes with Topo U.S. 8.0 which is the newest version of Delorme's topo maps.
Summary: Instruction "manual" is a joke. It assumes you know all about related topics and does not go into proper detail on how to ACTUALLY start using it. Manual looks like it was written by someone who was trying to impress you with vague instructions.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying a gps unit as we didn't have a lot of money to spend on one but still wanted to get the most out of what we did have. I mainly use this unit for geocaching and it is great!
Summary: I was hunting for a gps that was cheep and would be great for geocatching but did not wish to spend much money. This unit is packed with maps and can do more than I was expecting it to do from measuring property lines and finding bench marks to just taking a road trip it covers all of that and is...
Summary: Difficult to use..Poor instructions, just a overview no detail. DeLorme web site gives a great overview of marine maps BUT it's it does not come with marine maps.Why?? It comes with a SD card BUT no instructions on how to load or use it.
