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...

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!!!

Una mondezza, sconsigliato

Lorenzo, amazon.it
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo prodotto nel novembre 2012, dopo 3 mesi in cui l'ho usata 2 volte si è rotta. E' una cineseria, leggera ed economica, made in china ovviamente. Ho chiamato il centro assistenza, una ragazza cinese che parlava poco al telefono mi ha fatto una serie infinita di domande, dove l'ho comprata, carta di credito, ecc... la telefonata era a pagamento mi sarà costata 10€, ma mi ha detto di portarla presso un centro assistenza.

Ottimo GPS

Riccardo Merlotti, amazon.it
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Pratico e semplice da usare, forse un po' scomoda la legatura che falsa la rilevazione della temperatura se lo si assicura al polso, ma nel complesso un buon prodotto che farà al caso dei passeggiatori un po' "disorientati" come me per esempio.

A prima vista buono

Paolo, amazon.it
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Non posso dare un giudizio definitivo in quanto lo userò in estate durante le mie escursioni in montagna. Posso dire che al primo impatto sembra semplice da usare e non ho avuto difficoltà a metterlo in funzione.L'altimetro( che andrebbe tarato durante l'uso) è preciso e anche il barometro fa il suo dovere.Per il giudizio sull'uso del gps rimando a quando farò le escursioni Consegna del prodotto rispettando i tempi.
