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....

Good basic unit though a little larger than most. Batteries do last a good period of time and accuracy is as good as othes I've used. Does lack some of the bells and whistles that more recent models have but it has helped me find many a duck blind or ice fishing spot in the dark. I even used it to locate wrecks when diving.
