A very good you did but no longer manufactured.

fishnweeds, Ebay

  • Summary: This is/was a great unit. However, it seems that every time a manufacture comes out with an outstanding product it is taken off the market in the hopes of selling something more expensive with features that may not be needed. I use this GPS to locate fishing areas such as brush piles, drop offs, or other locations. It has served me well for this purpose and is reasonably accurate.

  • Summary: The toggle is difficult to use. I have seen similar modules that can be toggled with the thumb. This one requires two hands.

  • Summary: My Garmin Venture works well. I still do not know all that it can do. I needed it for the Everglades Challenge 2012 as the check points were waypoints for the location of the Checkpoint lock box. My inexperience with GPS and other issues forced me to withdraw after the start. As a result I have some recommendations for any one considering purchasing one of these items. 1st purchase your Garmin early and use it often to familiarize yourself with all the function keys.

This does what I need it to do.

ddcarr, Ebay

  • Summary: I use it on my sailboat and when I ride my bicycle. It does what I need it to do, measure distance, give me my average speed, max speed, stuff like that. I don't really use it locate points other than the waypoints I put in myself, my marina, etc. It came with a disc to load detailed maps but I haven't used it. I had a problem getting my computer to work, probably my problem not the software but I was disappointed to find out how much the maps cost.

  • Summary: For the price compaired to a high end GPS the venture is a good buy. You can upload the garm maps to it and its as good as a high price GPS that costs hundreds of dollars more. The maps are not cheap. Remember to update from time to time you can do it online.

  • Summary: I bought this specifically for geocaching, and I have been pleased with it. It took a little time to figure out exactly how to enter the gps coordinates (this was probably due to my inability, not due to any product fault), but once that was accomplished, it was a breeze to use. The Garmin led me to the exact places I needed to be.
