Nifty with significant shortcomings

Bryan J. Lowder, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: The geko 201 is nifty. It's light, fits in a pocket, and it could save your life, I suppose. It doesn't have any maps on it, which is unfortunate, but that's part of what makes it inexpensive and portable.

awesome little GPS

Marc Ohms, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit due to its size. It is tiny and lightweight so I tend to carry it more often. It picks up a signal very fast and in conditions where others are still searching.... I can quickly pick up a signal in my basement! Very accurate as well.

  • Summary: I do geocaching and found this unit to perform well for a much smaller cost than most other GPS units out there. For someone doing family geocaching I think it is great.

perfect for geocaching

Jenni Willingham, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • Summary: This is a great GPS for Geocaching. The battery life is excellent, and since it uses regular batteries, it's easy to carry a spare set with you, so no worries about an internal battery going dead. This model is tough as nails, and still works despite my brutalizing it in the forests of Michigan.

  • Summary: I purchased this Geko 201 for Geocaching. It is not the easiest to use for that purpose; however, it can be done with an external compass in hand.

Subject to the Y2K+10 bug, but fixed!

GJ Geocacher "gps user", Amazon
7 March 2010
  • Summary: My Geko 201 was subject to the so-called Y2K+10 bug. For any time period after January 5th, 2010 the GPS device incorrectly calculated the date. This resulted in an incorrect (dysfunctional) almanac which caused an excessive amount of time to be taken to acquire satellites.

GPS made easy for newbies

Vick R. Hines "Spock", Amazon
8 December 2009
  • Summary: As a skeptic about GPS, I bought the Geko only for marking maintenance needs on hiking trails. I found it was fun to play with, too. It is about the most reliable way to test the speed of my canoes, and navigating in featureless aquatic environments such as bays and estuaries is a cinch.
