Fun but with disappointments

Mr. M. A. Gustafsson "Martin", Amazon
25 June 2009
  • Summary: I've had great fun with my Geko 301, but it's also been somewhat frustrating. I see that other reviewers have also experienced problems such as no functionality in forests. If you're spending a day walking in a forest, the device is essentially useless. I wish someone had told me that beforehand.

Garmin Geko 301 is a great value!

Daniel B. Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: The re-conditioned Geko 301 is indistinguishable from a new one. We use it in our land-surveying business in conjunction with National Geographic TOPO! to find section corners and quarter-corners.

Great small GPS unit

Andrew Peoples "theycallmepeoples", Amazon
15 February 2008
  • Summary: This is a great, small GPS unit. It is very light and full of great functions. It won't map, but I use it to just keep from getting lost. Also, the altimeter and the electronic compass are great. The batteries last a while, but I only turn it on occasionally.

Good for its size

Eric Jain, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • Summary: Amazingly compact, no larger than a small cell phone. Easy to operate, even though there are only five buttons. Can be configured to use different units and coordinate systems. The battery life is okay but can be as short as four hours, depending on various factors (which I wish were documented...

Excellent first GPS

Mike, Amazon
23 September 2005
  • Summary: A great simple GPS with some neat extras such as Compass. The manual is not very good on it. They seem to forget to put in the manual some simple things you would need to know on it. However it is something I am very happy with...

User Review

mek, Utsidan

  • Excerpt: Lätt och liten bärbar GPS med tryckluftsmanometer & höjdmätare. Mykcet lätt att lära sig använda. 500 waypoints & 20 track kan lagas i minne. Höjdmätaren fungerar också mycket bra, jag behöver faktisk inte mera min Suunto Vector.
  • Pros: Storlek och vikt, lätt att använda, bra höjdmätare
  • Cons: Kort batteritid på GPS, ingen utvändig antenn, ingen knapplås
