Ease of use, and a great value- put a Geko in your pocket!
9 January 2012
Summary: GREAT PRICE FOR RELIABLE GPS & EASY TO USE! I purchased this as a backup for another more elaborate gps that has a proprietary battery that must be recharged in the field. This unit takes standard alkaline batteries and they can be changed in the field- allowing for almost endless use if you carry spares. The Geko is so easy to use- I could set the waypoint or destination and hand it to almost anyone and be relatively sure that they would get there.
Summary: I love this GPS unit. It is dead on with its coordinates. The buttons, located on the face of the unit, are easy to push (a lot of the handhelds have their operation buttons on the side - more difficult to grasp & push if you have small hands or arthritis) and the screen is large enough to see clearly. Pocket-size and very portable, this is a terrific tool - especially if you are going Geocaching!
Summary: I have owned sever GPS receivers – the Geko series is my favorite. It is simple, easy to use and has the features i need to navigate in the backcountry. The menu system allows quick access to the features I use the most – Mark waypoint and the Goto functions. The battery life (2 AAA) lasts for two weeks of moderate use. The easy to read display and backlight features make it comfortable to use in day or night navigation with complete ease.
