2.0 out of 5 stars
Poorly designed and poorly constructed, 27 July 2009
This map measurer could be easier to use and better made. If you just want to measure distances then you may find it to be an example of the modern trend to clutter electronic devices with unwanted functions. Worse, I found the operation of the functions not to be intuitive and so quickly forgot how to use most of them. When starting to measure a distance, it is difficult to zero the measurer. Within 2 years, one of the control buttons fell off and the battery failed. I have now replaced the measurer with a conventional model. This product would best suit someone heavily involved in the fine details of outdoor activities but may be overkill if you just want to measure how far you have walked. But if you prefer an electronic device it does the job.
