Has a fatal design with the power switch

Ralph E. Richardson, Amazon
10 November 2003
  • Summary: This would be a good GPS for geocaching except that it has a fatal design/firmware problem with the power switch. If you carry this in your coat or pants pocket, its a sure thing that the unit will power up all by itself, drain the batteries, and leave you high and dry. I suggested to Garmin that they change the firmware so that if the unit powers itself up and the power button isn't still depressed after 2 seconds, then it powers itself back down.

  • Cons: Autonomie batterie (au moins 16 heures 24 si possible). Prévoir une source externe portable qui le permette.
