Summary: This thing takes FOR EVER TO LOAD!!! (5-20 min) It also has no maps so dont count on trying to find trails or what route to take! The screen also has no back light so it in hard to use at night! The plus side is that it is very small and light and is good for starters.
Summary: This is the only GPS that I have ever owned and I'm more than happy with it. As noted above, I 'only' use a GPS to check my position but the ability to do this is immensely valuable as a back-up to my (ahem) almost faultless nav skills.
Pros: Small and light Waterproof Easy to use Battery life seems very good (although I only use it to check my position).
Cons: Buttons a bit small if I'm being really picky but then it's a small unit!
Summary: Excellent bit of kit and well priced. Until I hear more about Satmap then this will be staying in my rucksack. As per the previous review I only use it to check grids in bad weather so battery life is not an issue.
Pros: Small, lightweight and easy to use.
Cons: Not really a weakness but as it is so small so are the buttons. making it tricky with big gloves - not much of a problem in reality.
Summary: I generally only use the GPS to find my current grid ref in really poor visibility, so 99% of the time it sits in the bottom of my sack. This lightweight unit fits the bill perfectly, and you forget that you're carrying it.
Pros: *Small *Light *Tough *Colour (honest...)
Cons: *Battery life a bit weak (mainly because unit uses AAA's to keep weight / size down)
Summary: Using Rechargeable AAA batteries, with the Battery Saver feature turned on, about two hours. Sometimes I get more using alkalines, but not much more. Honestly, this unit is worthless, because I can't trust the batteries. Order a Garmin Etrex Legend instead.
Summary: Das Modell ist schon recht betagt und für seine Funktionen inzwischen zu teuer. Dann doch lieber ein teureres Gerät, das essentielle Features unterstützt, z.B. das "eTrex Legend® HCx". Hat man mehr Freude dran. Wichtige Details: - Serielle Schnittstelle (Kabel wird aber nicht mitgeliefert!
Summary: Ich habe mir das Geko 201 schon vor Jahren gekauft und nach einigem Rumspielen in der Schublade verschwinden lassen! Grund: Der Empfang ist so schlecht, dass das Gerät im Wald oder sogar zwischen Häusern unbrauchbar ist.
