Device is nice, but I have several complaints

Cindy kester harpster, Amazon
13 October 2010
  • Summary: Device is nice, but I have several complaints. Why don't you send a users manual with device? It took me several days online to try and find one. I understand the manuals online are very long, but some kind of getting started advice would have been nice.

A bit quirky

Ohio Mom, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • Summary: I wish I had the same great experience that the other reviewers seemed to have. Now, before I start, let me disclose that I am new to Geocaching, so keep that in mind. Perhaps that would explain some of my difficulties. The good points: The unit is small and very portable.

Magellan ExploristGC

Fritz, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • Summary: A decent GPS for geocaching. It comes with street maps for the entire United States and Canada and base maps (major highways) for the rest of the world. In the US and Canada you can navigate (it does NOT auto-navigate) yourself to a geocache by watching the mapping screen and choosing a route.

Limited Improvements

Readerly, Amazon
29 September 2010
  • Summary: We've been geocaching a long time, and while our trusty Garmin has taken us to many caches, but we're tired of keying in caches manually and taking printouts with us. This seemed like an ideal solution. What we love: All the cache information being right there on the GPS - no more printouts!

but the joystick works better than most up/down buttons

Steven Swanner, Amazon
27 August 2010
  • Summary: no expandable memory, but the joystick works better than most up/down buttons. it's made for geocache, and makes a good starter. only downside is having to download the cache files to the device, where most smartphones now days get better readings.

I thought I would like having a GPS that is solely designed for geocaching ...

Kate, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: I thought I would like having a GPS that is solely designed for geocaching as that is the entire reason I purchased one. As it turns out, there are a lot of features that you need for geocaching that are not in this basic model.

Not as good as my Garmin.

Mark Wright, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: Screen to small for my almost 50 year old eyes. Confusing to use after using a Garmin for so long.

Not as easy to use with the website you're led to believe

Ronald J Hubers, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: Not as easy to use with the website you're led to believe. There's a LOT of setup work to be done before and after using this. I like the app on my phone better.

Wanted it to be easier...

Dac File, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: I like it but... not the easiest GPS to use for geocaching. It takes a lot of studying of the manual to get the steps and order down with this model. If you own a smartphone... the couple fee apps out there do a better job than paying for this one, in my humble opinion.

It is okay and I use it occasionally but you ...

Doni, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: It is okay and I use it occasionally but you can't teach a geocaching class with it as you are supposed to put in the coordinates and that is part of the class. Anyone want to buy a barely used one?
