"The Worst Customer Service Available For Any GPS Unit"

F-Fitz, CNET
23 January 2009
  • Pros: Works Fine if it doesn't just erase all your saved information when changing the batteries. This happened to me, and the customer service told me that this happens sometimes, and there is nothing they can do about it! Yah right.. you could fix it!
  • Cons: After 11 hours that the batteries can last for MAX, there is a chance that when changing the batteries, that you may loose all the data you stored in the unit. Thus, if you go into the woods for a few day hike, hope you get back, without any data.

DO NOT BUY !!!

methoxy_11, Ebay
4 June 2008
  • Summary: Pros: I have yet to find one. Cons: This is an obsolete model with very old maps, perhaps 6-7 year old. Manufacturer does not provide any support, upgrading the maps is more expensive than a new GPS itself, of the same brand. The 20 GB hard drive it boasts can only be used to store manufacturer's software and nothing else, no MP3 or any other data making this hard drive space totally useless.
