Simple GPS, good value for money for casual, no bells or whistles

  • Summary: Simple GPS, good value for money for casual, no bells or whistles. WAAS has issue in software needs to be updated to version 2.5 I think, so be sure to buy a serial cable to update. Buy the garmin compatible it works and you save $30.

Great for time & distance, backtracking

C. Weiss, Amazon
14 November 2007
  • Summary: As electronic-products evolve, older products like this become an economical path to more basic functions. This one is a great "time & distance" GPS, with limited other abilities like backtracking, sunset/sunrise data, and tide tables (I still don't know how they do this one). I use it on a sea kayak, for things like figuring out upstream lines where there's less current (hard to discern by eye) and generally for inland waters this feature-set is quite adequate.

Gps 72 Handheld

23 September 2005
  • Excerpt: I am a commercial fisherman who relies on both exact and dependability in a Gps navigation aid. The Garmin Gps 72 is a very dependable unit i use another brand on my boat while working and i have the gp 72 beside it and have found it to be a better unit allround, so i hear you all say, well this is why i mentioned my other unit, the other ones costs nearly £700 and is a fixed unit, with a smaller display.
  • Pros: Lightweight and waterproof
  • Cons: Wrist Strap

  • Excerpt: The GARMIN GPS 72 is a worth approximately £120 depending on what accessories you buy with it. The unit has been designed for the marine environment and is water proof and floats, which is a good start if, like me you enjoy sports such as sailing or kayaking. It has no frills looks, but is solidly built and easy to use. The screen view, although grey in colour is big and clear.
  • Pros: simple to use, robust, exellent for small boats
  • Cons: slightly dated look, simple digital map .

  • Excerpt: Прошёл испытания в экстремальных условиях в течении 5 лет на охоте в северных регионах. Если используется на протяжении длительного срока в одной и той же местности ограниченной площадью несколько десятков км. то нет необходимости тратиться на более дорогие модели с возможностью загрузки карт областей, тем более, что мелких деталей местности(перекрёстков просек в лесу и т.д.) на них нет.
  • Pros: 1.Большой экран при низкой цене в своём классе создаёт удобства для построения и обзора индивидуальной карты.
  • Cons: 1.Мал объём памяти. 2.Не возможно сбросить данные путевых точек на PC и следовательно при неисправности памяти пропадёт вся информация
