works perfect for my needs.

  • Summary: the only thing that would make it better, would be a color screen. But then the battery wouldn't last as long.

If you can finf one buy it!

tv39, Ebay
1 January 2012
  • Summary: This GPS from Garmin was way ahead of it's time. It is very easy to use and can be used for both travel by land or air. Yes this makes an excellent low cost GPS for aviation. Just change the setting from road to compass (easy to do) put in your waypoint and the arrow will show you the way, including bearing, distance, your tracking, speed and time of arrival. For the money it was great when it first came out and if you can still find one it's still great today.

GPS III

vsalisbury21, Ebay

  • Summary: Great for a handheld GPS to use for Geocaching, about as basic as you can get. Would not use for traveling but once out of the car, you can work with the coordinates and bread crumb your way back.

cheated

Minor Barrantes "TI2YO", Amazon
28 April 2010
  • Summary: I buy one of these and they sent me a used unit, in a dirty and wrinkled box and that did not correspond to the model purchased. It did not work well, given problems with memory.

Good GPS for APRS

KD5LAP, eHam.net
12 January 2010
  • Summary: Although this is a discontinued product, it is still a good GPS, even for APRS use. I bought one of these to use for a mobile APRS setup, and had it up and running within minutes. The unit can power directly off 12 volts DC, and provides NMEA data out via a serial connection. You can attached an external antenna for better reception. When attached to a compatible APRS transceiver such as the Kenwood TH-7D, received stations will show up as way points on the GPS display.

Screen bug-a-boo

R. Atwell "birdieoneputt", Amazon
19 October 2005
  • Summary: My Garmin 2610 has long been a terrific electronic unit. Now, for no known reason, the screen has shifted to the point where the touch does not allow you to enter text. Garmin wants $250 to fix the unit regardless of the issue. I think this is excessive for a unit that has been immaculately cared for and is quite expensive. Magellan next time for me...

Nice, but a bit confusing

C. Smith, Amazon
5 May 2005
  • Summary: My first GPS was a very old style that gave you longitude and latitude only. No roads. No water. Nothing. So the jump to the SP III was a big one. Had to struggle a bit to download the info (updated from the website) onto the unit. Tough for this first timer to get the hang of it initially, though it gets easier with time. Working with the unit alone is a bit more complicated as naming waypoints and such can take a bit of doing using the toggle switches.

Battery placement destroys SPIII

Pappy, Amazon
9 February 2005
  • Summary: I just destroyed my unit by getting one or two of the batteries reversed. I removed it from my truck to update the software from my PC. I never used the internal batteries while it was in the vehicle because of temperature conditions. It was always plugged into the lighter socket. So I connected it to my PC and of course it doesn't work with out batteries. So I got some fresh alkaline AA cells and put them in.
