Good hardware, bad software


Acquisition from cold is usually quick, and hot starts are very fast. Tracking is reliable and battery life is good. Lat and long values are wrong in exported csv and text files, but correct in Google Earth klm files. If Imperial units are selected...

Hard Learning Curve


The hardware works and is very simple but is not as accurate as other sat navs I have. The software is primitive. My advice is don't read the packaging it will mislead you, find the user manual on the disc and read that. I was alarmed at first because...

Value for the money


Am using this unit for low cost way to record hiking trails. Great sensitivity compared to previous chipset. Not very intuitive software but once onto it it does the job.

Empfangsstark, aber etwas schwer


Ich habe dieses Gerät seit Anfang 2007 und bin sehr zufrieden. Es hält mit den mitgelieferten Akkus tatsächlich einen ganzen Tag durch und bietet genug Arbeitsspeicher, um ohne PC-Synchronisation einen einwöchigen Urlaub komplett zu loggen. Das...
