Don't waste your money

 

Read some online reviews before purchasing this product.It seems really hit and miss if you get a unit that works properly.I sent this unit back and bought a Garmin and love it so far.

Great satellite aquisition and seemed accurate

The included base map is worthless.If you upload maps from Nat Geography topo they are blurry when zoomed in.Compass would not calibrate after numerous attempts.Locked up my computer whle uploading maps
