Complicated

Timpster "Artistick", Amazon

  • Summary: Compared to apps on my cell phone this device is very complicated. It does, however; work in remote places where my cell phone becomes worthless. The screen is small but it is easier to read in direct sun compared to a cell phone. It seems pretty rugged and if the 300+ dollars to buy it doesn't put you off I say go for it. I have had no previous GPS interaction to campare it with.

Very good but not perfect!

Christopher W. Burke, Amazon

  • Summary: The interface is a little complicated and there are some minor quirks with the firmware that Magellan could fix but haven't as of yet, but the worst shortcoming to me is the poor visibility in bright sunlight. For hiking, walking, mountain biking, and use in the car this issue usually isn't a problem, but for riding my road bike it is a major problem. In that situation I use the night mode in the daytime, which helps a little, but still not very visible.

  • Summary: I am a professional archaeologist, and this GPS is working well for me. It is very easy to learn to use, and interfaces with GIS software nicely.

Best GPS I've owned

  • Summary: I currently own 6 GPS's. I bought my first one in 1998 and have watched as technology has gotten better through the years and this is definitely the pinnacle of GPS technology thus far. From 1998 until recently, I've used my GPS as I've hiked and hunted all over the midAtlantic region of the USA. Specifically some pretty large public land areas in WV and large tracts in Ohio.

Great hiking GPS

Nicky Nacks, Amazon

  • Summary: Listen, i am a complete beginner when it came to this type of gps. I am a little tech savy but not a computer programmer. I thought that this was very easy to figure out and im sure once i get to play with it more i will be able to explore allnthe fun features. The camera is actually pretty decent quality but the video isnt too great if you are going to to view it on a bigger screen but it is stillnacceptable.

Almost perfect, almost

JMEBD, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Like the title says....almost.... If it had a LED light on the back (would be very handy), and if the video that it records would be a bit better quality. It's a bit choppy so you have to move it slowly while panning or you'll get blurring and choppy video. Would like for it to have a bit better documentation on some features that this thing has (and it does have a LOT of them BTW).
