During daylight it wasn't a problem but I'd hate to rely on this thing after dark

G. Russell "Badgeman", Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: Bought this for a recent hunt to Louisiana. Sitting in a tree stand the GPS showed me moving at 12mph and the "cookie trail" was all over the place. Trying the "track back" to get back to camp always showed me 80 to 120 feet off the trail. During daylight it wasn't a problem but I'd hate to rely on this thing after dark. Couldn't get maps to load for the 350H. I'm returning this and going back to Garmin.

Base map is terrible - Upgrade to satellite map very difficult!

NC Fam, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: Magellan's web site and the advertised free digital globe map download did not work to get the satellite image map. Without the satellite view map this device is useless in hunting. The satellite map should have come pre-installed. The advertised distance of accuracy was also skewed. my actual distance of accuracy was 33 feet. So you're telling me my way point for a blood trail could be anywhere within a 33 foot radius. NOT HELPFUL!

Not what I expected

  • Summary: Just got this 350H for Christmas, and have spent the last day and 1/2 trying to download imagery to it. Still have not succeeded after multiple calls to support and 3 online chats. Vantage Point software won't stay up....it goes into a loop and never comes out. After many tries I finally got an image download started for a 20 square mile section of territory I think was near where I want to hunt. The download speed varied between 35KB and 130KB per second....

Does not keep waypoints on map. Only on saved trip/hunt.

HAMMERTIME, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: GPS will not mark a location and have it on the map all the time. Only on saved trip/hunt. So if you mark a location and try to just pull it up on the map, it will not be there. You will have to go to all your saved trips and try to find it. And if you delete a trip, the waypoint is deleted too. Stupidest thing I have ever seen!

  • Summary: I own a Mac. To install a better topographical map (which I purchased) required setting up account on a friends PC and attempting to download there. It never did so my $50 map is God knows where. It is of no use to me without the better map. Horribly disappointed in customer support or lack of!
