Let me preface this, I bought it for 2$. This is a wonderfully outdated (circa 1995) piece of technology that works and is in great condition. I downloaded the original manual for it from magellans website, put some new batteries (4 AA) followed the directions by inputting the coordinates for Gladwin and set it outside to lock into the satellites. It took about 20 minutes, but it initialized, locked in and found the position. It shouldnt take nearly as long from now on. Now, the question is, what should I do with it? I already have a nice Garmin Etrex Venture HC color screen handheld, so its not something I really needed. My first thought was that I could use it as a speedometer to mount on dirtbike/bicycle that I could leave on it in public without worrying about it getting stolen. What do you think? My friend already called me a horder for buying it. Also does anybody have any experience with these, somebody said on a different thread that it has the ability to get coordinates from google maps, but I'm not sure how because there are no ways to hook it up to a computer that I can tell.
