Recent GPS Receiver Reviews

Garmin inReach Explorer+

rated 4 of 5 stars Best option on the market for a cross between a locator beacon and a cell phone when cell coverage is not available. GPS features aren't great for typical Garmin products, but still serves its purpose. Overall it's a great product and I feel it will serve its purpose well for my upcoming solo backpacking trip in Alaska where cell coverage is non-existent. I don't really need the mapping ability, but it was a nice plus. The primary reason I bought it was for the SOS capability, secondary was to… Full review

Garmin Foretrex 301

rated 4 of 5 stars Tough little device, handy for hiking and other active sports. I use this device for hunting, jogging, canoeing, and hiking for about three years. While it’s too small to have detailed maps and other niceties, its “breadcrumbs” mean I can always find my way back to the start, and I can focus on looking for game, instead of looking for markers to backtrack. The “AAA” batteries make it a little bulky, but it means you can change to fresh batteries while you are out for extended periods. … Full review

Garmin eTrex 20

rated 4 of 5 stars The Garmin eTrex 20 is a great handheld GPS unit. This is great for hiking, biking, or just having a spare lying around for when you need to get off grid. The Garmin eTrex 20 is a great handheld GPS unit. I use this unit every day for work as a forestry technician. This unit, in my experience, has usually 3-7 meters of accuracy in Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. It always seems to have reception, others I have had do not. This GPS gets dragged around in the forest with no mercy. It has a decent… Full review

Suunto X9i

rated 1 of 5 stars Save you money—poor manufactuer support! This GPS device was made to support the Suunto brand directly by not providing their product through general retail outlets, and to make the product sealed, preventing customers changing their own battery. This device must be sent to the local national Sunnto-owned and operated office for battery change. This product is priced-fixed through Suunto authorized dealers only. A MAP price is forced on those Suunto-authorized dealers.  They are not allowed to… Full review

Magellan eXplorist-710

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Does the job and works under heavy bush canopy, though there is a steep learning curve to master this device. Consumes batteries ravenously. My first 12-channel high sensitivity GPS, so I was very impressed to see it work in dense bush. However in hindsight this is to be expected these days. I found the system very difficult to learn despite having worked in IT for 10 years.  After four years of hard use the cover over the rubber button has worn off rendering the GPS usable but no longer waterproof.

Garmin inReach Explorer+

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you're looking to combine your messaging and GPS needs into one device, this is it. I've acquired this GPS for a solid price of $300 through incentives of my workplace, and its the best $300 I've spent on gear. This GPS has accompanied me on any challenging hike, backpacking trip, backcountry skiing, or any trip into the mountains.  Communication (Requires subscription) As shown in some pictures I've uploaded, this GPS doesn't anything special in terms of features. But what it does do it does… Full review

Garmin Foretrex 601

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is an excellent GPS for outdoor, hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, backpacking, and military type use. The small form factor, good battery life, and ease of use along with the ability to customize some screens to give you exactly the data you want at a glance makes this unit my #1 pick for outdoor adventures. I purchased this GPS to use primarily on hiking and backpacking trips. Opening the box and removing the device is pretty straightforward. Setup was easy and the system and button layout… Full review

Garmin eTrex 10

rated 1 of 5 stars Poorly designed GPS. Thumb stick on the e-Trex 10 does not work. Pressing it straight down is supposed to be the equivalent of ENTER. It takes numerous tries to achieve enter. The screen features are not distinct. This a very poor product that deserves a recall from GARMIN. I am trying to get my money back. Full review

Suunto X9i

rated 2 of 5 stars I have owned two (2) X9i watches for several years which I purchased when on a cruise. After a couple of years the wristbands started to break and chip. Wristbands on the watch housing are made out of rubber. Every year afterward the wristband started to chip and break more frequently. Paying the amount for two watches you would think the rubber parts of the watch would last more than a few years. I recently called for service and the service dept. said that it would cost between $45-$65 to replace… Full review
