"An expensive paperweight"0.5 starson by Antar25
Pros: Nice bright display, quick to acquire satellites, easy to use tracks and trails. On line FAQ helps since instructions are useless.
Cons: Instructions pretty much useless. Even after several conversations with tech support I still cannot get most maps to display. A battery hog, does not get the 10 hours advertised. Mini buttons a pain to use. Route planning difficult.
Summary: Given the other problems, I would probably still be okay with the unit if I could get maps to show. The maps are present on the SD card, but the unit cannot use them. This makes it overall pretty useless for my needs. Several messages and a phone call to tech support has failed to address the problem.After wasting my time with tech support, I finally, through trial and error, got some maps to work sort of. It actually works okay once you get the maps in. If I was looking to buy, though, I would avoid the headache of trying to get maps to work and buy a user friendly unit.
