Well, with all the hunters gearing up I thought it might be a good time to shed some info on this GPS unit!
Bought one about 3 weeks ago and it works GREAT! Does exactly what its made for. For the hunter or outdoorsman that wants a simple GPS tool this fills the bill.
1. Has 3 waypoints to mark
2. Has electronic compass that has been right on target ea time I used it.
3. You can use it a bit like rangefinder - mark a waypoint, walk to where your shot could be, it will read in feet, yards, miles, and metric equivalents.
Where this tool is very useful would be to mark your transport vehicle, auto, boat, quad etc, mark your destination - stand, hilltop etc, and use the third waypoint to mark downed game!
This is SUCH a SIMPLE unit to operate - takes like 5 minutes to learn or less - weighs ounces - and can be bought for about $50.00 or less!
I have a complicated older unit - way to many waypoints unless you are really into technology - maybe fishing would be good???
Anyway, this unit will def get you back within feet or a few yards of where you want to go and I can't see anybody struggling to learn to operate it.
It will not mark a trail - just get you in a straight line to whatever waypoint you choose to mark... For the hunter going into strange country and not wanting to spend a fortune on a unit this seems to be a great tool...
