Outdoor Activities
The PN-60 supports all popular outdoor activities. Features include a highly-accurate 3-axis electronic compass that works when held in any position, moving on foot or standing still. For traveling in elevation, there is an elevation profile tool that pinpoints your location and a sensitive barometric altimeter for precise elevation readings and the ability to gauge potential weather changes. These elevation features are particularly useful for hikers, climbers, and hunters. The ability to display NOAA nautical charts make the PN-60 a valuable navigator for sea kayaking and coastal sailing.

The PN-60 fully supports paperless geocaching, and offers almanac pages with information on tides, hunting and fishing favorability, and sunrise/sunset and moon phases.

DeLorme has devoted significant resources toward offering a rewarding geocaching experience. In addition to the unique value of available aerial imagery, the PN-60 delivers a wide range of paperless geocaching capabilities.

Individual caches can be downloaded, with all information included, from Geocaching.com. The PN-60 and Topo USA also support imports of high volume Pocket Queries from Geocaching.com, and they allow virtually unlimited cache description character counts, so you'll have all the information you need on the device, including other cachers' log notes.

The optional DeLorme Cache Register download delivers enhanced paperless geocaching functions. Sync your Pocket Query search results directly to the PN-60, and sync your user logs and other cache details to Geocaching.com.

The PN-60 is a much better unit than the PN-40. Battery life is infinitely longer compared to the PN-40 (I had one) this unit will go all day on the Li-ion rechargeable pack. Additionally, the new menu system is far quicker to navigate and the profile view showing elevation is great for hikes. This unit teamed with the new Topo 9 also provides for quicker and simpler map and routing downloads. As far a GPS units this one may not have the biggest screen or smallest size etc... the reason you buy this unit is for the data layering and the Delorme maps - nothing comes close for $29.95 / year.

Check out the Delorme web site for plenty of examples.

I realized I wanted a GPS when I discovered geocaching, it took me one time going with a friend to find a cache and then I was hooked. I did however, spend at least 2 weeks shopping around, reading about GPSr's from every company I could learn about, and then narrowed it down to a few. Both Delorme's were in my radar, as well as the Garmin Oregon, Dakota, and GPSmap series. My friend owns a GPSmap60csx from Garmin, and I must admit that those have extremely exceptional accuracy, which most reviews and forums will attest to. I also learned that the Garmin Oregon and Dakota have had issues with attaining WAAS satellite locks, which took them out of the picture. These WAAS satellites give a much more accurate reading, and when you're looking for caches in thick woods, pinpointing the area is crucial. What made me decide on Delorme over the GPSmap is mostly the software that Delorme offers. From my experience with both GPS', the Garmin may be slightly more accurate in readings, by about a foot, which is a negligible amount. Having said that, back to the software, Delorme's Topo NA software is incredibly in depth, (although not very intuitive). As well as Delorme's map subscription package, you have many options for how your GPS will portray its data to you. I mean, for adding the $30 subscription to your total price, you have access to satellite images, USGS quad maps (which is amazing!), aerial photos, nautical maps, canada topo maps.... it just can't be beat. And with the Topo software, you can layer and customize all the maps to work together as one super map on your GPS. Not to mention the Earthmate PN-60 has a much nicer, newer interface than the Garmin GPSmap.

All in all, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of this product.

Before I buy anything off of Amazon I read all the reviews written by Amazon buyers. In most cases I'll read reviews written by customers of other vendors.

In the case of the Delorme PN-60 all reviews that I read mentioned the broad feature set that the unit features which includes WAAS, geocaching features, a powerful software package that interfaces with the unit, Topo level maps included for the US, Canada and Mexico, map layering which supports satellite and aerial imagery. Included are an electronic compass and barometric altimeter. For geocachers the unit supports geocaching.com plugins, .loc and gpx file formats. I was impressed with the ability to add up to 32Gb of additional memory with an SDHC card. I was impressed that all this could be had for $249 compared to other units with equivalent features that cost $400+ and $500+ in some cases.

What I wasn't impressed with were the many reviews that complained that the documentation for the unit and Topo 9 software were incomplete and difficult to understand. In addition many complained that maps take excessive amounts of time to load or will not load at all. Luckily for me I've learned in 33 years of computer use that more often than not if something doesn't work right it is the nut behind the wheel and not the wheel that is usually the problem. With reservations I purchased the PN-60.

Folks I'm here to tell you that the PN-60 performs as advertised. 1st time out of the box it took around 3 minutesfor the unit to find, lock on to and generate it's position. After that the lock normally has taken a minute or less. I tried getting a lock from inside my house. Takes a bit longer but it locked on to 5 satellites with ease.

This review will confirm and expand on the unhappy review by Jon Robert. The PN-60 is best suited for someone with extensive prior experience with GPS or who can get tutoring on the device. As a novice user of handheld GPS, I may have thrown the $239 price down the toilet, as I've not been able to do much useful with it so far.

The PN-60 appears quite powerful and cleverly designed. However, it is complex, and the manual describes the GPS as a collection of screens that one can invoke -- it scrupulously avoids saying how to accomplish any high-level task (such as finding your way) one might want to use a GPS for. After reading the entire manual (!!!!), I am scarcely less in the dark about using this thing than I was before. Why DeLorme never thought of writing a task-oriented user's manual is a puzzle.

The supplied Topo software is also quite powerful and also poorly documented. However, I have not yet waded through all its documentation. The GPS manual, by the way, says almost nothing about the Topo software, although it is required to use the GPS most fruitfully.

(I should mention that I am not a stranger to technical things. I have a PhD in a scientific field; I have used computers since 1966; I have written software used widely in my field; I have a large and growing collection of gadgets that I CAN use effectively.)

In conclusion, The PN-60 is a well-built device with great promise but incredibly, frustratingly, bad documentation. The unit is highly complex, the related software is also complex, and you are pretty much on your own in figuring how to use them. (The online Wiki has bits of the manual only, and is no help.) If you have a LOT of time on your hands and like to solve difficult puzzles, this would be a great GPS for you. Or if you have extensive previous experience with GPS, you may not have the frustrating experience I did. The PN-60 is NOT RECOMMENDED for beginning GPS users.
