Pros: Rugged, Long battery life
Cons: Everything else
Not one review for this one after several years, so I thought I would test the waters and report back... yikes. I GOT WHISTLER ROLLED! LOL!
-Ancient B&W display
-Seriously outdated maps that looks like they were drawn by a kindergartner
-Nearly impossible to find external antenna
-Takes forever to get a signal, even with the antenna
-Very inaccurate cords
-No thousands place
-Huge sized CF card that only holds 32mb (512 max) have fun trying to hook it up to your PC
-Ancient, hard to use software (if you can find it)
-compass is useless
I guess I figured out why there wasn't a single review in all these years and why everytime you see one of these for sale, it's LIKE NEW! It's a running joke. I bet my GPS has had at least a dozen owners! Someone gets "Whistler Rolled" and then they pass the joke on to the next victim. HA! HA!
"So ughh, anyone need a GPS? It's like NEW and it has all the stuff! .... (putttthh!)
