Summary: A lot of complaints out there - between buggy system, poor maps, poor customer service, etc. I have a Endura Out&Back that I got from Operation Waypoint to use while in Afghanistan. So far it has proven extremely capable for its purposes. It handles the heat, the dust, the bouncing around, and every other thing possible: and keeps coming back for more. So for durability - I would rate this 10 stars! The base map options aren't topographic, but that doesn't bother me.
Summary: I had a really bad review here which I will edit. My endura was freezing but it was because there was an update. I have since updated and have no issues so far. I also was able to get great customer service to help me through the process. Not five stars yet because I didn't like how it froze in the first place, but I may adjust to five stars if it gives me a few more years of use.
Summary: This Handheld GPS does not load GPX files or rather auxillary map files. For instance it will not load and display files from Fishing Hotspots E110 which are Michigan fishing maps. I have an old iFINDER H2O Color model and it displays these files without any problems. I notifies the seller and received no response back. I refund or replacement should be performed on this transaction, however, I can not get any satisfaction.
Summary: Tracks fine - Horrible instructions. I used it in an off-road race and needed to upload a pre-made map. Turns out, the normal file extension for Lowrance does NOT translate onto this unit - you will need to Google a free program to convert it. Sucks the life out of batteries if you are using the backlight - Not small enough for hiking and not big enough for racing.
Summary: There is very little to none topo data. The sims are nonexistence. The official Geocashing site does not support direct GPS transfer. It will allow GPX transfer. I expected more Topo data but got a basic GPS like the one I use on the highway.
Summary: Portable GPS Receiver Lowrance Endura Out & Back until better browser is not seen. I tried a lot of different, but this is the first work in different environments and have never nepodvel. I advise everyone. That's just not enough USB cables and maps of Russia.
Summary: This model is full of bugs. When geocaching it will give you false information, then once you walk past the cache 60 feet then it changes direction and points back it's S L O W. It's a joke loading pocket quaries too. The pointer lags and freezes, just check other reviews (Lowrance refuses to fix).
Summary: The unit works like its supposed to. You turn it on, it finds satellites and marks your position accurately. My friend got one too. We took em up at 10,000 footer last weekend. Both recorded elevation within like 10 feet of each other. The Endura seems a bit heavy on batteries, but its a bit new yet to really tell, and you can just put it on standby when covering ground anyway. All the other stuff works well. It doesn't come with contour maps..
