Truly awful. You may be lucky and get a working model.

N, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had some problems with my unit. It was sent back a couple of times and apparently there was noting wrong with it then it lost the map license and the micro sd card had to go back. I have tried to use it on a couple of occasions but for some reason it turns it elf off. Overall not very reliable, but get the map on your iPhone and it is great.

This Is Not The GPS Your Looking For

E Cowpe "Explorer", Amazon
31 July 2014
  • Summary: Had one of these for about 4 years. Poor battery life, no firmware upgrades, major software crashes that require the SD Card sending back, had it replaced under warranty. What should have been a fantastic product has been let down by under development. I just noticed Memory map no longer support the forum and that it has finished. You can't get German or Swiss Maps for it. If you want to import scanned maps you have to have another licence even if its your own map.

  • Summary: I found the unit very slow to pick up satelites and completely useless in bright sunlight, not much good if you can only use it on dull days. when after it finally lockef on I must say it is then very good. but, when trying pick cordinates etc.

Dont Buy

  • Summary: I purchased an A2800 in March this year, and as I've never used one of these devices before I was looking forward to using this on our annual holiday in Wensleydale in April this year. It worked for the first couple of days then locked up, apparently this was some known fault with the SD card, but I wasn't informed until after my holiday.

Good for the price and features BUT there are many issues

  • Summary: The GPS unit for its price and features is very competitive compared to the equivalent Garmin, etc. But there are several issues with the GPS unit and software. There have not been any firmware updates for the unit since it was released and the unit crashes every so often requiring a reboot (turn it off and on again). The battery life is not very good (6-7 hours) and is not changeable (built into the unit).

GPS Memory-Map Adventurer 2800

mp3, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: This GPS is not all it is cracked up to be. It has design faults-the worst fault is that the screen is very difficult if not impossible to see in strong sunlight. Also, it is very easy to slip off the sub menu you are trying to access-a real fiddle when you might be under pressure in bad weather on the high mountains. Personally, I preferred my old Garmin LEGEND for simplicity and ease of use. Would not recommend this GPS to climbers or hillwalkers.

  • Summary: Very accurate easily to follow and set up if you are good with this sort of thing. Advantage is it comes with the uk map already installed, would highly recommend.

Adventurer 2800 review

Alan F, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: Bought this item on the basis that it was "ready to go" but in fact you had to go through a rather elaborate procedure that required the help of there " help desk" to get it registered on line. The person I got was surly and unhelpful. Eventually got it working by doing some strange registration process that was not at all intuitive or explained by the manual. The third time I used it the screen developed a crack.

Stays in the draw

C. Steiner "Casual Reviewer", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this a couple of years ago - this is a late review for a product that I guess has now been superseded BUT I felt moved to write this because I took the damn thing out yesterday on a short bike ride - 12 miles. On the trip back the battery was exhausted! I had bought the supplementary battery unit with silicone cover - another ill thought out solution to a piss-poor component of the 2800.
