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.
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.
Summary: There's nothing wrong with the device - however, I did the same thing as the previous writer. This device does not come with the SD card inside that contains the software required for use with UK OS mapping. It seems fine for use with the device's own map, but it is not as detailed as an OS map. I could not transfer maps from PC to the device without this software.
