impossible to figure out. Loses signal under a tree!

 

Total waste of money.

nothing to like

Have to have the manual to figure anything out, but doesn't give good information anyway. Drops the signal constantly. Compass only works while you are moving. Where is the map? Total waste of money

I use my Garmin GPS 72 on my Catalina 25 sailboat. I only use itfor boat speed and direction and it works perfect. It is what I needed and therefore is a perfect addition to my sailboat gauges.

BRILLIANT FIRST GPS

 

An excellent piece of kit, simple to use and ideal as a first GPS. Big screen and works really well with my Fuigawi software. Reasonably priced too. Highly reccomended.

Plenty of routes, biggish screen, easy to use. Totally waterproof

lack of memory. eat batteries for breakfast

Excellent basic GPS for the hills

 

All you really need in a GPS for the hills. 50 routes gives more than enough flexibility for when you don't really know where you'll end up. The satellite altitude read-out is plenty accurate enough to give you a quick position on a topo map and who...

50 routes; large(ish) screen; up to 6 concurrent data readouts; ease of use
