Super accurate!


I own two other GPS handheld units, and one of them is mounted in my boat. They are accurate, specially after SA was eliminated by the Dept. of Defence. But the BRUNTON MNS is waaaay more versatile and precise! I'm still going though all the features...

My thoughts on the Brunton MNS


...The first thing I would like to say is "WOW!" I just purchased one of your new MNS receivers and am so very pleased with its performance, that I just had to write you a quick note. I have been shopping for quite some time for a little handheld, but...

Product Specifications

Whether in the tropical rain forest or exploring the Arctic, the Multi-Navigator has been designed to withstand the most extreme weather conditions. The Multi-Navigator is designed so the built-in True-Magnetic™ Compass can work independently of the GPS receiver function, allowing you to navigate without the assistance of satellites yet update your position when needed. This unique feature allows for amazing battery conservation; giving you weeks worth of battery power rather than hours worth.
