Summary: Maybe its not the best GPS out there, but for the price it is a great purchase. I like things simple and this GPS is exactly that: no fancy complications. I only hope it will last, no way to tell about that right now.
Summary: Great basic GPS. I bought this one to replace the same version I owned for 13 years. That one finally went out on me after years of hard work. This GPS is great for supplementing other nav systems.
Summary: this is a nice little gpsr for geocaching, really good for beginner or a backup. nothing fancy about it, no camera, black and white display, compass loses direction when you stop moveing. It does point to your target, gets you within a few feet too. really short learning curve to figure out how to use it. and it does light up for night hunts. 5 buttons, power, page, enter, up, down. no joy stick so less likely to break or snap off. very good basic unit.
Summary: Works fine now that I have all the setting corrected. Took it GeoCaching the 1st time I used it and it was throwing me off about 100'. Previous owner off of E-bay must have had settings for something other than normal usage. Success with Geo's since reset! Great price on E-bay used!
Summary: I researched the Garmin e Trex GPS and found that it would meet the requirements necessary for my use. The purchase price for the unit was within the limits that I had set when I started looking to buy the unit. I have not had the time to operate it to this time. I have read the operating instructions, and it seems quite straight forward with a few exceptions.
Summary: i use the max speed setting and odometer with my rc boats. it's a very accurate way to check our speed and many fellow boaters use these for the same applications. i have dunked them on numerous occasions with no leaks and they float. the last one i had took an extremly hard hit and that killed it,but no surprise. overall it's a great little device for my application.
