Expert review by:

Clunky Nav Tool Rugged Enough, but Obtuse Maps Don'...

 

Our reaction on opening the box: Ew! But like a pug, the iFinder is so ugly, it's almost cute. Unfortunately, the performance is less lovable. Proprietary

High-contrast, multi-colored screen. Survived 5- and 10-foot drops, and even repeated dunkings

FreedomMaps deny you the freedom of detail; we have never seen a more half-baked topo maps. Bulky and inconvenient to carry. Device alerts you to marked waypoints with shrill, panic-inducing alarms

Good at what it is, a basic charting GPS. Owned 3yr

 

Great for what it is, a limited charting GPS for boating use in conjunction with the use of paper charts. Bouy position accuracy is very good as is shoreline accuracy. NOT a full function charting GPS but fills the gap of low cost limited charting...

Small, lightweight, EXCEPTIONAL battery life. while it's speed and screen readability aren't great it does a good job at providing basic charting and bouy info for the boater. I use it for wilderness canoeing & sailing the Great Lakes & E Coast

NOT a full function charting GPS for boating. Must be used in conjunction with paper charts for boating. NOT a highway GPS imo and not even sure it would make a good hiking GPS

Lowrance ifinder GO2

 

This was my first handheld GPS buy. It has many of the features you expect in a GPS but it is let down by the following reservations. Although it is cheap, the screen is very poor and for me is almost unusable. The map redraw when zooming or panning is...

Has many of the features of more expensive GPS

Poor background map and dreadful screen
