Still a way to go -Design Good,GPS fair, compass awful.
Don't use this to find your way across a car park, it will frustrate you. Slow first acquisition, and misleading pointer. I bought this gadget as a way of encouraging myself to walk further from base. On paper it was exactly what I wanted - simple, and easy to use, well made, and longish battery life. (ages on intermittent use) For what I wanted, it is acceptable - it will once, it has locked on, tell you how far you are from base, or any of five points. It has a pointer that tells you the direction back to that point, but as the compass on the unit is the real achillies heel that is very unreliable - often it points the wrong way. There is a technique to calibrate the compass, but it doesn't help. Your best bet is to keep walking. The only way to be sure you are not heading 180 degrees in the wrong direction is to see if your distance figures are counting down. (or check with a real compass!) Sometimes it is very slow(more than 2 minutes) to lock on from cold, but once it has found the satellites it reacquires them very quickly, even for a while after it has powered off, enabling you to find your distance, position and altitude (which is nice) and if you are quite lucky, the direction home.Read full review
