Excerpt: This unit worked great for the first year or so...though it didn't get much use. Then it started locking up...just after the warranty expired of course. It has happened three times and now I have a very expensive paperweight!
Conclusion: The SporTrak Pro is a good GPS Receiver. The receiver is small, lightweight and has all the standard features that you'd want in a handheld GPS Receiver, the only thing lacking from this receiver is to be able to expand the store space allowing for larger maps to be downloaded with MapSend.
Conclusion: This is a great unit and well worth the money. If you have a Garmin Etrex, trade it in for a SporTrak Pro.
Pros: The satellite connection is excellent. Very user friendly. Lots of memory (32MB total). Buttons are easy to use and are below the screen instead of above or on the sides of the unit which makes it much more comfortable than the Etrex Legend which is designed for left hand use (I am a Lefty).
Cons: The Mapsend Software is very expensive ($150.00) as opposed to Mapsource (Garmin $89.00) but is supposed to be the best available. I have not gotten it yet but hope to get it soon. The website does not include MSRPs like Garmins website, which makes it difficult when trying to compare with other ...
Summary: POR QUE REUNE TODAS LAS CARACTERISTICAS QUE SE REQUIEREN PARA EL EMPLEO DE ESTE TIPO DE ARTICULOS EN VARIAS ACTIVIDADESES, CASI IGUAL QUE EL RENDIMIENTO Y CONFIABILIDAD QUE DA EL GPS 315 (MAESTRO EN EL POSICIONAMIENTO EN SU EXPOSICION DE LAT/LON Y UTM EN PANTALLA).
Summary: Tenemos este GPS desde hace unos 8 meses. Para empezar habría que aclarar que no es lo que ahora se denomina "un sistema de navegación" , y tampoco es un accesorio para el automovil, sino que es receptor GPS indicado para senderismo, deportes al aire libre, rutas de campo, o navegación.
Pros: Relación calidad - precio/Completo manual de instrucciones
Cons: Cable con puerto serie / Se va quedando anticuado
