Don't buy this unit!!!!

 

The only good feature of this unit is that I didn't pay for it, (my father won the unit at the local PC users group meeting and gave it to me since I frequently go camping with the Boy Scouts).

Very sloooow GPS satellite acquisition, old & out of date software, very limited features -- don't buy this unit

Consumer review by:

mediocre hardware; horrible software; overpriced

 

The biggest problem is with the MapSend software. This garbage is way overpriced (even at $70 on the net which is half the Magellan price). It has consistent 750 foot errors (poor maps) with a GPS satellite system that produces 10-20 foot location...

I can think of nothing positive to say about this device. Price/performance is terrible

MapSend software (extra cost and way overpriced) maps very inaccurate; horrible reception unless you are in sub-orbit

Great for travel and geocache.

 

The unit is great for geocache. It has been extremely accurate. Basic functions are easy to use

There are almost too many features packed into this unit. It takes a little while to learn how to use what you want to use
