CNET Review Lives in Crazy Town

 

CNET's bizarre review of this unit as a simple GPS receiver prompted me to set the record a little more straight. This is NOT simply a GPS receiver, and consumers interested in such should definitely look elsewhere. This is a powerful, professional...

GPS and PDA in one, camera, flashlight. Windows Mobile 6. Waterproof and rugged. Takes AA batteries (not proprietary and expensive NiMH battery packs). Perfect for data entry in the field

Some of the dedicated buttons only work with Magellan software, not with third-party software like ESRI's ArcPad. No WiFi, which is an odd omission

Consumer review by:

Good idea, poor support.

 

Great idea but it was never designed for Win7 64Bit and there is little support after you buy it. You can get it to work in a jerry rigged manner. The post-processing capabilities for points, lines and polygons fills a niche in the price range. Maybe...

Only post-processing gps unit in the $1200-1300 range. Collects points, lines and polygons. Relatively easy to use

Original software and hardware not compatible with Win7 64Bit. Updated Mobilemapper Office will run, sort of. I have to get the files onto my OS using a memory card reader. Ashtech provides very little technical support. Keyboard and stylus are tiny
