Excellent Hang Gliding companion. Easy to read displays.
10 September 2011
Summary: I bought my original one of these at Aldi about 5 years ago, for a steal then, around $90 after tax, and I used it for geo-caching, hiking, but mostly for hang gliding. I am a novice so I haven't flown many long flights, but this little unit is ideal for hang gliding, with it being wrist-wearable. The wrist band can even be used to mount it to a hang glider base tube, with a little ingenuity.
Summary: I purchased this for my daughter, as she said that she really needed it. (AGE 29). She reports thst she loves it. This has been a very positive experience, right from the start, when she found it listed as an auction.
Summary: I bought this for lightweight backpacking since it is small, waterproof, lightweight, and easily worn like a watch. I recently tested it on a 4 day desert trip in Southern Utah and it was really great. I mostly want this just for location confirmation, and waypoint tracking alongside a paper map, so the lack of really useful maps built in is not a problem for me. It is highly customizable and you can create screens that show all the data that you want.
