  • Excerpt: I stumbled into buying this unit after purchasing a very disappointing Magellan Triton 400 and National Geographic Software package. It turned out to be a marriage from Hades, so I carried it back and purchased the PN-20 packaged with Delorme's Topo 7.0. This was a wonderful marriage compared to the Magellan Triton experience. Software worked great and allows all kinds of possibilities with downloading maps, aerials, NOAA charts, you name it!

  • Excerpt: I own 4 Garmins. They are all easy to use. I bought a PN-20 for the Quads and sat photos capability. The PN-20 has been a nightmare to load maps into since day one. My son and I are of average intelligence. I am a physicist and he is an engineer. I gave him the unit, he fiddled with it for a couple of days and gave it back. I just spent 5 hours with an upgrade to TOPO 7.0. Unit won't recognize the maps that are sitting on it internally, never mind the SD card.

  • Excerpt: The display is spectacular. The Delorme unit has all the standard features of a handheld GPS. You can download TOPO-USA maps to this GPS unit, and get high resolution maps for any place in the country. This is great! However: -- the unit is very slow to acquire satellites, compared to either my handheld Garmin or Magellan. From a window seat of almost any airplane I can get a fix with my Garmin and read the names of the cities that we are passing over.

I only had the PN-20 for 25 days and it already broke!

  • Excerpt: I only had the PN-20 for 25 days and it already broke! It fell off my bike when I was riding it… The screen cracked! I contacted Delorme, they told me that THEY need to determine if it’s covered under warranty or not! Be careful not to drop this thing!! I will let you all know if they stand behind their product or not. Wish me luck! Steve Barron - August 16th, 2007 Update: August 28, 2007 It's steve barron again... I was very pleased with how Delorme treated my case.
