Spent a lot of time for nothing

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: After reading reviews in the geocaching forums and doing other research, I thought this unit would be great. Needless to say I was VERY disappointed. First off out of the box, I could turn on the unit, but could not turn it off, which I thought was very weird.

Great accuracy, if it would quit losing satellites.

  • Summary: My husband bought my PN-40 for me last year for Xmas. Took out geocaching with us and with it just hanging on a lanyard around my neck, it would lose satellites. Emailed Delorme, several times, finally got them to take it back to look at it.

Not designed for rugged hiking

  • Summary: I got the PN-40 about six months ago for use in speleological work - that is, hiking what is generally very rugged terrain looking for caves. I got the PN-40 for the topos and aerials, and in that department, it is absolutely great. Unfortunately it falls short in some other areas.

Unreliable

  • Summary: I received this item in early June 2009 with the hope to use it to geocache with a friend during their last weekend in town before moving out West. I immediately loaded up some maps from the included Topo USA, and installed the DeLorme plugin for [...]"Send to GPS" feature.
