I agree that the batterly life is not great. Finally a firmware update is planned that will facilitate geocaching directly on the device. Otherwise that data is stored in a protected volume. I’ve continually upgraded through the ranks, but I believe that the PN will serve every need I’ll ever have! Robert Robert – May 25th, You may also like.

I think that the Garmin may have somewhat better topo maps, but you need to buy them separately they are free iwth the DeLorme. My uses are mostly biking, hiking, and other recreational activities. Always carry a backup map and compass.
Also, any recommendations on the memory card in velorme of size? Robert – December 7th, Topo maps, aerial photos, and other data must be downloaded using the computer.
They are designed to work efficiently with the GPS. Highest priority is detailed shoreline maps.
Kirk – October pn-0, This will provide you with more realistic distance estimates, the ability to view a profile of the route to see just how steep it is, and you can share your trip plan over the internet with anyone that has web access.
First and biggest knock is battery life. PN owners will notice that very little has changed on the new PN They have other units that have inland lakes or coastal charts.
Thanks for the insight. Laurie – March 25th, Powered up, changed battery type to Lithium.

Several months delorrme I celorme in the backcountry with my brother, who had a Blackberry. The GPS positioning signal comes from the satellites, but the map data comes from the cell wireless network unless you have pre-loaded maps from a third party vendor.
For Canada, both Delorme velorme Garmin have very crude base maps that would only show major roads and larger lakes and rivers that come free on the GPS — not something you would want to use for off-road navigating.
Since getting the unit back I have not used it. To mount it on a shoulder strap, the type of case needed to hold it securely would make it less accessible.
In my testing on a recent production device I would consistently get a satellite signal from cold starts in under two minutes, with warm starts taking 30 seconds or less.

As with many other American companies, DeLorme just don’t seem to understand that there are other worlds, territories, even oceans, beyond the borders of the good ol’ U. Don’t expect anything revolutionary. Also thanks to all of the questions and replies in this thread. Repeated attempts, including sliding the light bar and finally it did power down.
Have a great trip. Look for it as a free firmware update to the PN soon. ALSO, big note here, many people complain that it is slow Jonathan – March 14th, Aloha Keola, I spend a few months each winter on the Big Island and the rest of the year in a remote part of Alaska. I am very interested in moving from the PN to the PN, mainly for the image redraw speed.
No change of batteries, NIMH still installed. Bill – December 26th,
