  • Summary: This was the second handheld GPS I owned. I started with the PN-60 and upgraded to the PN-60w so I can use with the Delorme inReach unit. I liked both versions of the GPS and found it very reliable. great for hiking, boating and biking.
  • Pros: long battery life, accruate positioning, good color display, pairable with inReach or spot, screen size
  • Cons: the Delorme rechargeable battery can only be charged when in the GPS, hard to follow manual makes a longer then normal learning curve for some, needs bluetooth

Terrible Product and Service

Biscuit, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: I was a NOBO Appalachian Trail thru hiker in 2011 and carried this piece of crap until Damascus. The GPS receiver took forever to get signal in the mornings. I would get ready to head out and stand there like an idiot waiting for it to find the satellites.

Every adventure needs one

  • Summary: I have the SPOT 2 which I purchased in April 2010. Used it all summer with great results. I am retired U.S. Coast Guard and was the Search and Rescue Officer for many of my units. Many lives could have been spared if safety was on the list of any activity. Communication buys time.

GeoCaching Nirvana

R. Wolfe, Amazon

  • Summary: I started off GeoCaching with my iPhone and life was great - right up until the point I had to walk into the trees to get the find. That thing had me tromping all over the place, at some points, up to 150' from my target.

A long, winding, frustrating tale

dcn8v, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: I'd love to be able to tell you about how this device functions in an emergency, but I've owned mine for almost a year and still haven't been able to trust it to work correctly. The first SPOT I got was a model that got recalled. I sent it back to the company and they gave me a new one.

Dissapointed... but progress

Adam, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Mostly feedback for the SPOT service... 1. BEWARE! SPOT will require you to purchase yet an additional package on top of your normal service if you want to send custom text messages (AKA Facebook and Twitter). This is likely the main reason you are all buying this device.

Breakthrough communications in a GPS

M. Bramel, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: I have been a PN-20 and a PN-40 user, with prior Magellan and Garmin experience. I find the PN-60w with the SPOT Communicator to be the best GPS yet for outdoor activities. While acknowledging other users' observations that the PN-60w and the bundled Topo North America software take more effort to...

Revolutionary

Tracker57, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Imagine a GPS that shows highly accurate positions on the land, on water, in cars, geocaching, kayak fishing -- you name it, but also lets you send text messages when outside cell coverage.

Awesome Accuracy!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Well, I was impressed with this unit when I examined it at GW7. Having owned several Garmins previously it was quite an adjustment switching over to a Delorme. Setting the Topos up was quite laborious. They say you have a $40 credit worth of maps you can select. I still have yet to figure that out.
