My wife went to REI and got me a Geomate.jr today. (Geocaching's first attempt at the hula hoop IMO.)
It will get a 2,500 mile road test across 9 states to GW7 and back the long way around in the next 10 days.
My first impression is pretty neutral. It's minimalistic, light as a feather, and not as intuitive as other devices, but I won't be testing it out on an actual cache until tomorrow.
It kept telling me to find open sky and I was standing in my front yard that has only 1 tree. Okay, that didn't impress me much but it was the first few minutes the device was ever turned on in my possession, so maybe it was just figuring out where it was.
Anyone else have one to report on?
