Reviews and Problems with Lowrance Endura Out&Back GPS
Showing 1-10 of 38
Longing for warmer weather
27 September 2012
Summary: Alright, cabin fever has been driving me crazy and has led me to start going through all my hiking gear in anticipation of Spring hiking weather. As part of that, I finally broke down and bought my first GPS online - the Lowrance Out&Back.
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.
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: 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: 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.
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.
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.
