Good GPS for outdoors.

Protobug, Amazon

  • Summary: This works good although not inside the car. The metal blocks the signal. You can't get lost in the woods with this since you can use it to retrace your steps. I don't like the way the charger snaps on, it is a tight fit and difficult to get on and off.

Excellent basic GPS if you don't need maps

Peter Jensen, Amazon
3 April 2008
  • Summary: This has been a solid GPS receiver for general situational awareness and logging trackpoints. After several years of pretty heavy use while hiking, walking, mountain biking, commute biking, and the occasional trip up in a model airplane, the receiver still works fine and has decent battery life.

Not what I thought it was!

C. Dixon, Amazon
7 January 2008
  • Summary: The item turned out to be not what I thought it was. In the item description Not once was it put forth as a trail and hiking GPS. I bought it under the premise that we could use it for our car.

  • Summary: The Garmin Foretrex 201 is a great product. I ordered it when my eTrex bugged out on me during my deployment to Iraq, and the Foretrex was the perfect replacement to navigate around with.
