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.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider
