  • Great for the price.

    Used it on a hot air balloon trip with interesting result's. Found it easy to use & reliable. Recorded the top speed of a mate's fast model powerboat he found that very useful for tuning Etc. But the best bit was clocking the top speed of our dog !

  • Awesome GPS Logger

    I was very surprised when i played with this little piece white plastic. Its small and neat and packs a lot of feature. The software is one of the best i've come across and requires no cutting and pasting or importing of log files. You simply plug the device into your PC with the included cable. Open the Sports Analyzer software and the GPS tracks are instantly overlayed on Google Earth showing speed altitude time date etc. My only criticism is the charging/data cable not being USB Mini or Micro rather than some sort of old sony ericsson phone plug.

  • I purchased this unit to track riding trips. The unit itself is excellent, it is small, has good battery life and has behaved without fault. Unfortunately, the software has to be the most illogical, unfriendly software that I have ever had the misfortune to use. Screen,settings are not where they should be, and the instructions are poor. It works, if my laptop is connected to the internet by wi-fi or LAN, but not by 3G dongle, which of course, is what I want to use it with most of the time. This means that I usually have to wait until getting home before plotting a trip. If the manufacturers sorted the software, it would get 5 stars.

  • Very neat piece of gear. Works well although it's is a bit erratic when walking in a straight line and just makes it up if you lose the GPS signal. Software is easy to use and the ability to sync the route with photos taken is impressive once you have checked that the time on camera is exactly the same as on the tracker.

  • A fun, inexpensive little device that really works. It is just for personal journey records, not like the top of range commercial trackers. but a simple device to record your chosen trip. Great fun.

  • The device works perfectly, and the mapping software is excellent. First tiem out it showed me where I parked the car eighty miles away, and next time where I detoured around a rock fall while hiking. A bargain.

  • Bought recently mainly for orienteering purposes - logging my runs plus helping with pinpointing features when I'm making a map. Finds the signal usually within a minute or so while I'm warming up. Easy to use software but beware of the USB cable as I broke the small lugs on Day 1 and had to buy a replacement. The manual covers removing the cable but if you don't read it all first you'll miss the vital way of inserting the cable. Overall really pleased with it.

  • A handy little gadget that really works! It also has the ability to show google maps (satellite) of the whole world whilst offline. Handy if you are on the road and using a slow dongle! So far I have not found any things I would complain about with it. 10/10

  • I have just purchased this little gadget. So far it has performed extremely well and quite accurately. One thing that should be emphasised more is the fact that Google earth covering the whole world is there on the disk so you dont even need to be logged in to explore the world!
