Geo-caching ;0)
Reviewed By Simon, 14 Jan 2013

If you love Geo-caching and are fed up with your smart phone dying on you part way through the day then this is the next step. This has many great features but as this takes AA batteries, you can keep going all day/week with out worrying about re-charging. Just take a pack of batteries with you, saying that I use rechargeable batteries and I get a good weekend out of 1 set of batteries! Simple download and upload from Geo-caching websites. Very accurate. I have been out in torrential rain and this keeps going and going (unlike my iPhone they don't like water :0( ) if you get one of these you will defo get the geo-caching bug. Great all rounder for GC but a pain to put in updates. You will still need to take OS maps with you so you know where the footpaths are! As the standard maps on the device are basic. Star rating 4.5, very pleased with the performance :0)

 

 

 
A handy unit
Reviewed By Mike, 17 Dec 2011

Bought this back in August for it's purpose, geocaching. It's done well and has currently lead me to the best part of 100 caches with a good degree of accuracy. It appears to be robust and has coped with some foul weather! It has also withstood a number of cycle rides on some pretty rough surfaces. The hardest thing to use is the logging of details using the centre joystick as the unit is not touch screen. However, abbreviations have come in very useful. Uploading from Geocaching.com is straight forward. Altogether a handy piece of kit, I like it, 4 1/2 stars.
