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: 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 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...
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.
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.

Summary: This is about the most perfect GPS ever made. I tried to replace it recently, but I couldn't find a newer model that offers what this model does. It's small, light, waterproof, and cheap. It also gives me a 10000-point tracklog and is easy to use.
