Polar Explorer Posted March 20, 2006 Share Posted March 20, 2006 Hello Everyone! For anyone who has bought a MioA201, this is where we can give plusses and minuses, ask questions etc. Bearing in mind the uk advice line is 35p a minute and staffed it seems by people who seem to think I will be able to plug the unit into the car charger when I am walking on the moor for hours on end, this could save us all a bit of cash! That leads nicely into my first problem. The battery is pants! Seems to last 3hours ish when gps is on. Have purchased an external battery pack which plugs in through the USB cable (http://www.gpsforless.co.uk/product_details.php?id=3114) , but don't think it is all going to fit into the otterbox ( http://www.otterbox.com/ ) somehow! will figure something out and report back to you. Anyone got any other solutions? I run Fugawi 1:50000 landranger on it and it works fine but i cannot seem to directly upload loc waypoint files. ANy ideas?? Other than that, its a great little machine, and i can download the clue photos onto it to aid me in the hunt if i get a little stuck. Still new to geochaching but ohmigod what a great sport! Cheers, Paul, Helen, Hamish the Otterhound. Quote Link to comment
