Bushnell GPS

Postby GREENSon14s » Thu Nov 29, 2007 10:24 am

Anybody tried one or heard reviews?
The Onix200 uses real satellite aerial photos and layers your position onto the screen. Seems like a really cool new advancement in GPS but curious if anyone has any experience.

It's pretty new....only being out for a month or so. It looks cool, but I think I'll wait around for the bugs to get worked out and the price drops. Besides, I just got a new CSx and am very happy with it.
Sack up and climb.

I think it has a monthly charge for the weather feed over sirrius

Here is what I want in a GPS:

-Point forecast based on Co-ords fed down from NWS
-Google earth overlay if desired
-Ability to send a text message via sat or at least a I'm ok, I'm not ok signal
-Topo capabilities and standard GPS features
