+egami Posted April 12, 2007 Share Posted April 12, 2007 (edited) I complained to the BBB about not getting a printed manual with my MeriGold after repeated requests from the company for a printed manual. I received a call from their contact, he is listed on their BBB profile. He explained to me that the manual is on CD because the GPS is a computer product. After all, it does hook to your PC. So i guess the GPS units that Magellan makes are designed to work from your computer. While attached to my computer i have a very hard time caching with it though. Unless the cache is within about 4 feet of my PC- its is hard to find it. They expect their customers to do the following when buying a GPS: Not use a manual. Pay a print shop to print you a manual that you can use while NOT at a PC. Carry a laptop with you in the woods. (He told me i could do this.) I apologize if someone feels i am being unreasonable... Yes, you are being unreasonable. Of all people I am surprised to hear members of the geocaching community, who tend to be more environmentally concious, complaining about something like this. Also, it's the 21st century...I am not sure what products you buy, but thousands come with soft copy manuals. Get the manual on disc, load it up in Adobe and print. Problem solved.
