Summary: I am so disappointed with this tracker! I haven't gotten to use it even once, because it will NOT pick up signal, even in a flat field with no trees! My son tried it at the top of a mountain with no trees around, and it couldn't acquire the signal! It is an expensive piece of garbage!
Summary: bought to try out gps before concidering a newer model.its easy to use once you fiqure it out. no add ons, no maps, like in the newer models.but for basic navagation its great.i dont plan to up grade. i always carry a map and with the two i need none of the other perks.
Summary: I never seriously used mine since I don't go off in no mans land looking to get lost. I will say this wasnt user friendly to use and doesn't contain any graphics. But if you wanted to track where you started and get back to it this would do the job I guess. Like I said I dont go looking to get lost so I couldn't test the GPS in god forsaken places. I sold it as it was a gift that went along with another purchase.
Summary: I don't recommend this unit. The memory is NOT protected and all data will be lost if the 8mb battery dies..which is what happened to me..I was lucky to not be relying on this as a life support..The seller was courteous on the phone but didn't seem worried at the possibility of someone coming to harm and stated they don't recommend relying on just one item and to have a compass or other means of navigation out of the forest.
Summary: product is a great intro into the hand held GPS world, but it's not very accurate, and it's a little cumbersome to use. If you want an inexpensive hand held GPS then this is your toy, if you want something really cool, spend the extra money and get something over the top cool.
Summary: I needed to locate an exact position. This is my first GPS Receiver. I am amazed at the technology and the accuracy of this handheld unit. It is equally functional under roof, in the car, woods, and open field. A pair of "AA" batteries last all day. The unit includes all the easy to understand instruction I need to navigate anywhere, especially unfamilliar terrain.
Summary: This is my second one. Sure there are better ones out there, but for the price it fits the bill for me and does everything I need it for. I use it mainly for hiking, biking and kayaking. It lets me know how to get back, but also how fast/far I'm going.I actually LIKE that it's not rechargable. When I'm out in the middle of no where,it's nice to just chuck a fresh pair of batteries in it, and go.
