Top critical review
on 4 June 2014
1) I like the build and the accessories, and feels like a quality product.
2) The performance of the GPS was disappointing, I had a good position lock when I left home, and about 30 minutes later, after I came out of a (short) pedestrian tunnel, it could not re-acquire a good position lock, even though it had a clear view of the sky. My Samsung Galaxy S3 (I had running as a control) had no such problems.
3) Pushing the buttons on the side of the unit, one handed, can be tricky, they are quite stiff and the natural reaction is to hold the opposite side as well for leverage, but it's difficult not to push the buttons there as well.
4) Using the course function as a simple turn navigation feature does not work well, it frequently announced I "was off course" even though I wasn't, and when you do go off course, there is no indicator to tell you how to get back on course, the best I could do was stop, zoom out until I could see the course and then head towards it.
