I f you travel by car nowadays, you never have to worry about directions, since we all have a car navigation system at our disposal. But what if you are traveling by another means and in an unfamiliar area? That's when an outdoor GPS device comes in handy. Regardless of whether you're an outdoor sportsman, cyclist, biker, walker, tourist or recreationist, this GPS receiver will always make sure you're able to find your way back. We received the Wintec G-Trender WSG-1000, an outdoor GPS handheld, to put it through the test.

GPS receiver test : Wintec G-Trender monitor

A monitor is generally lacking on the cheaper and less advanced GPS Photo Locators. Personally I find that a monitor adds value to a GPS device, after all, it's a lot more fun to deal with a device that offers feedback right away. Whether it's the power of the signal, the altitude, the direction you're heading in; a monitor is able to give you all the information you want. This makes it annoying when you have to deal with a monitor that is not clearly visible in direct sunlight. I haven't been able to test the Wintec G-Tender's monitor in bright sunlight (Dutch cloudy skies) however; there was never a moment in which I couldn't read it properly. I think this is also due to the black&white version of the display which provides a big enough contrast.

Wintec GPS handheld review - Wintec navigation menu

The Wintec GPS device's menu consists of nine main pages. These are: Calendar page, Speed page, Satellite page, Compass page, Altimeter page, Astronomy page, Navigation page, Training page and Information page. Additionally the GPS receiver features a Page list to gain quick and easy access to a main page or to deactivate it if you don't use it often. This is very handy since it prevents you from having to go through the pages that you don't use anyway.
