Not worth the money

BBQ Guy, Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: I received this unit as a gift and had problems right away. One of the biggest problems is you can't turn the unit off. The batteries don't last long and when you remove them the gps looses all the information so it has to be re-programed each time. The compass would not calibrate and the baro/altitude readings were very inaccurate. I feel this unit is not worth the price and would look at other options.

Do not buy this item

rhmotoman, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Based on my experience, this unit is a piece of junk. I received my first GP123 in August and it worked for about 3 weeks. I changed the batteries and went to recalibrate the compass - all I got was a FAIL message. I tried maybe 40 times to get the compass to work with no success. I called the customer support line at Oregon Scientific. This is one of those lines where you sit on hold for 30 to 60 minutes before you get a live body to talk to you.

Economic and reasonable in their mensurations

Mike, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: I can comment in relation to the GP123 that recently bought: it is a machine that works according to the specifications described by the maker, it generates reasonable data compared with professional apparatuses of industrial use that I also possess. My interest was more focused to the altimeter function to teach my children the different heights to those that we move as beings human many times we don't know because it is hot or cool, but the height has a lot to see and...

GP 123 faulty

John R. Mann, Amazon
19 February 2012
  • Summary: This unit is the second one as the first one would only display a barometric prresure of about 26 inches which would be the most severe of tropical depressions and since I'm in the Rocky Mountains where the pressure is about 30 I know that is wrong. Same issue with both units. Also, altimeter was set for feet not meters but today switched on it's own to meters and the barometer also switched itself the hPa and I cannot toggle it back.

Outdoor guide

Robert Allsop "Looking in many directions", Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: This device not only gives good general details valuable for outdoor activities but also provides fascinating information to those who appreciate reference data : the barometer function is very accurate, the compass indication precise in degrees, and informative for altitude ; though my own treks need only limited assistance from the GPS function, the signal strength has always been high when switched to that mode, and should prove as trustworthy as the item's other...

Oregon Scientific GP 123 Altimetro GPS

Traverso Pierluigi, amazon.it
24 January 2015
  • Summary: Prodotto conforme a quanto descritto. Consegna rapida, nei tempi previsti. Ottimo in tutte le sue funzioni, tranne quella GPS che vive di vita propria (accede ai satelliti in modo quantomeno casuale e indipendentemente da spazi più o meno coperti). Le altre funzioni -quelle a cui ero più interessato- sono ottime, affidabili e precise.

Potrebbe essere meglio.

Guido61, amazon.it
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Non ho ancora provato il dispositivo in montagna, ma da una prima impressione devo sottolineare anzitutto che una volta inserite le pile non è previsto un tasto di spegnimento, pertanto il dispositivo rimane sempre acceso. La ricerca del segnale GPS è abbastanza lenta, anche se è una caratteristica di questi dispositivi.

Opzione return to the base

Grilli Massimiliano, amazon.it
28 August 2014
  • Summary: L'ho regalato a mio cognato, uomo poco pratico della tecnologia. Lo usa come solo altimetro, mentre l'opzione di ritorno all'auto che tanto lo attirava non l'ha mai considerata, in quanto ha desistito dopo i primi tentativi di utilizzo. Forse poco immediato, ma da un mio test sembra funzionare, nonostante una certa difficoltà ad essere calibrato. Sembra un po "sordo", come se facesse fatica ad accoppiarsi con i satelliti per attivare le funzioni legate al GPS.

pessimo prodotto

marina, amazon.it
23 March 2014
  • Summary: Pessimo prodotto, si rischia di perdersi nei boschi. Il mio sfalza la posizione del nord magnetico di 120 - 180 gradi in modo casuale. Per agganciare il segnale gps sta un tempo infinitamente lungo e indica la strada di ritorno in modo casuale e bizzarro. Inviato alla assistenza dopo un mese mi è stato restituito tale e quale come prima, dichiarandomi, che lo strumento è pefettamente funzionante!!!
