PURCHASED H20 AT SPORTSMAN'S SHOW

7 posts in this topic

I purchased a H20c at Reed's stand. This thing is very cool. the question that I have is that when you are on the WAAS sats. the EPE (Estimated Postion Error) shows that I'm 14 feet off. I thought these things where very accurate.

I think 14 feet is pretty good. I dont get much better than that on my H20.....at least I dont recall getting too much better than that. All GPS units will some EPE....I guess I cant believe there would be a huge difference between brands. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

I never made it to the sportsmans show. How much was Reeds getting for the H2Oc?

14' is pretty good, the best I usually get is anywhere from 15'-30', unless I am standing still in an open field. The best I have ever gotten was an amazing 3', but that was like I said; standing still in on an open road while getting ready to go duck hunting on a clear morning. I have found that the units are pretty sensitive to movements.

Also, invest in some rechargeable batteries and a car charger; and keep them on you at all times. My batteries only last about 1-3 hours when fully charged. Don't forget that the unit will still draw some battery power even if it is plugged into a car charger.

Reed's had them for $225.00 for the H20c and $75.00 for the lakemaster chip. We are going to Devils Lake this weekend and very excited to try this H20 out for the first time.

I use Lithium batteries in my H20c and they seem to last a long time.

I've heard that the gov't actually regulates the accuracy of recreational GPS units with the satellites that the units get their position from. That way the terrorists won't have just as accurate navigation equipment as our soldiers.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
