Bought this 2nd hand from someone who clearly hadn't used it.
Took a while to figure out how to operate it, but once I had the hang of it it is a fairly basic device, no real bells and whistles. Paid £30 for it and so good value for money.
Interesting that the position tends to "wander" when stationary, I left it on the car roof in a car park and our position wandered by 20-30m every 2-3 minutes!
Had problems on Dartmoor - 600m altitude, clear blue skys on a summit and the message "Poor Satellite Coverage"....recurring theme of a week on Dartmoor, and when I did get coverage, my location was occassionally 800m off from where I thought I was by visual map reading. This issue was localised to Dartmoor....whether it's because I was on Military area???? Operates fine in Oxfordshire....
