  • Seems to work fine, but with at least one bug.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Low price, well made, sensitive receiver, works under tree canopy. Very accurate positions since unit is WAAS enabled (within 20’ under tree canopy and at base of 50’ high hills on two sides). Most useful for finding Lat/Lon and elevation of current position. LiPo battery seems to hold charge well. Works as expected except as noted.

    Cons:

    Most annoying is longitude is indicated as “S” when it should be “W.” in my part of the USA (Pittsburgh, PA). This is annoying, but not a big problem since you usually know about where you are, and the unit seems to give accurate position info otherwise. Limited Point of Interest (POI) memory (16 locations). Clunky for programming Lat/Lon of destination (has only 3 buttons). Have to be traveling at a relatively fast and constant speed for direction arrow to point toward stored destination point, but this is common of other GPS units.

    OtherThoughts:

    Would be nice if it was able to output NMEA sentences at mini USB port, but it doesn't seem to do so. Would rather have a slightly larger unit that used common AAA batteries since charging on long hikes would be a problem.

    Bottomline:

    Does everything I hoped it would.
