Wow! I'm impressed!

  • Excerpt: UPDATE: This unit is out of production. It connects with a serial cord, seems like Garmin is all USB now.I had to buy a Belkin serial/USB adapter to continue programmiing this unit with my new laptop. I have several pieces of Garmin GPS equipment, and this's one of the least expensive. I couldn't get along without it. I do a lot of dirt biking in the wilds of Michigan, and no longer must contend with my complete lack of direction recognition.
  • Pros: All the capability of the E Trex plus sufficient map storage. Low price.
  • Cons: Non-captive battery cover. Should COME WITH optional soft plastic case/cover. Won't work in dense woods.

  • Summary: This is a great product and if you want a simple GPS this is it. The geocaching option is really good and easy to use. The screen is small but you can scroll around easily enough to see where you are going and how to get there. I downloaded the open street maps onto this from talkytoaster and they are fab and would recommend them to anyone and yes they are free! So overall a great product for any outdoor discipline - walking, running, biking, geocaching etc.

Pinballs-up

Ticker, Amazon

  • Summary: If you were hoping that this unit would be of value for route-finding, think again. It has one fundamental, are very stupid fault that should have been caught long before it was reached the market. Routes are created by defining a series of waypoints. Each waypoint is given a number, such as 3001, 3002, 3003, etc. The location of each waypoint is marked on the screen by a pin symbol. Unfortunately, the pin hides the last two characters of the waypoint number.

Excellent for Geocaching

MadMinne, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: We purchased this primarily for geocaching with a secondary use of hiking having never used a stand alone GPS before (I have used geocaching apps on my phone before). I easily set it up within a few hours of opening it, I personally found it pretty easy to set up and anything I was confused regarding (importing pocket queries to it mainly), I just quickly looked up online and found step by instructions on how to do it, saying that I know my OH would have had issues...
