|I have a Cobra GPS 500 that I purchased three years ago. It was slow to acquire satellites, did not work with trees overhead, and the joystick quit working correctly after 6 months. It was not a mapping unit, and had poor battery life. Compared to my brothers Magellan Explorist it was a dinosaur.|
I replaced it with a Garmin Vista Hcx. It's like night and day.
I'm not knocking anyone's equipment, that was just my experience with their mid range unit at the time.
I have still yet to meet anyone with a Cobra GPS!! Lowrance, yes, (I know two people). Of course I see now that just about everyone and their brother are making GPS units, although mostly for vehicular use. These are a big item I see all over the ads for the Christmas 2007 season.
