Reviews and Problems with Lowrance Endura Out&Back GPS
Showing 1-5 of 5
It Works, but has limitations
6 May 2013
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.
Pros: The paperless geocaching functions are wonderful. Loading new geocaches to the unit are easy. Especially if you have a premium account on geocaching.com. You can download your pocket queries and load them right into the unit without any conversion
Cons: Slow startup. Better sort options for favorites and geocaches would be helpful.
Summary: Bought this for my Mom as an upgrade from her old B/W Garmin. She mainly uses it for Geocaching, so that's what I'm reviewing it on. Pros: Cheap, bright, touch screen (no stylus), pretty accurate. Cons: Slow to get a lock, list by distance doesn't always work correctly, interface can be a little clunky for some features. All in all, though, it's not bad for a cheap handheld GPS, especially for new users.
Summary: This product worked as directed. However it does not come with Canadian base maps so anyone in Canada or visiting Canada and using this product will be floating around on a blank screen. I returned the product because of this oversight by Lowrance.
