Delorme PN GPS System and Mapping Programs are great for creatinng Maps
13 June 2012
Summary: I upgraded from the PN-20 and am very pleased with the PN-40 GPS, the Delorme Products work well when generating usable maps for hunting and fishing. Delorme offers a large range of both GPS Units and Mapping Programs.
Summary: I read reviews, I read reviews , I read reviews, and they were right. This is a very good gps, the maps are better than what comes on garmin ect. It does take some reading and figuring,but you can just let it calibrate ,push mark, and go, then push reverse and go back.
Summary: I have not had enough time to load my own maps, which would make the device much more useful. I use it on my boat and I can say that it works well for that. It tracks my path and allows me to re-trace my "steps". It also shows me my MPH, heading, etc.
Summary: We are using this device for geocaching and it works extremely well. It is difficult at times to navigate thru the pages to get to where you need to be. Great little unit otherwise and I would highly recommmend it!!
This is the first GPS I have owned so having nothing…

Excerpt: This is the first GPS I have owned so having nothing to compare it to. I truly love this device. I have to agree with the other reviews that the unit is big and clunky and a bit goofy to navigate at first but once I got the hang of it I found it rather easy to use.
Summary: This GPS is easy to use, has simple button features and sits well in your hand. It also works well with geocaching.com. However, because it is an older model there are a few geocaching.com features, such as pocket queries, that do not work unless you upgrade the firmware.
Summary: Tons of features and smaller than I thought it would be. I read lots of review on different units before looking for one of these. I needed a good off-road unit that would do "breadcrumbs" and was waterproof.
Summary: Excellent, well-made product. The silicone- rubber housing provides a good grip, dry or wet. The screen appears to be fairly scratch resistant so-far. However, I will cover it with a plastic screen soon. It is light-weight and the software almost completely intuitive to use.
Summary: I bought (2) of these units for Geocaching (One for me & one for my daughter(9) because of the rave reviews I have seen across the internet. This is the first actual GPS units we have ever owned (Besides my Phone); I will say I am very impressed with the features, quality, maps, ease of use &...
Summary: I have owned several Garmin GPS units and this is the first Delorme I have owned. Both makers have excellent units but there are important differences. If your needs are diverse as far as trail use and road navigation - leaning toward road use - then Garmin is the way to go.
