Kona Honzo AL/DL 2017 Review

Instead, the surface of the apparatus has a menu on the left side and a toggle that works for either scrolling and selecting, in addition to scrolling buttons, along with a back button and light/power button on the right. With no touch screen, this allows cold weather use, both due to the buttons, and controls.

If you want a solid, GPS with no bells and whistles that drive up the price, look no farther than the Gamin eTrex 20x. It comes with a foundation map such as all Garmin components, but it gets the choice to upload detailed topo maps. The eTrex 20x is light, quick, accurate, as well as 25 hours of battery life, it won our Best Buy Award. We believe this is an excellent option if you want an inexpensive GPS unit that packs a lot into a bit.
For how mild it is, this item is damn zippy when it comes to finding a sign in both covered and open areas. It was somewhat slower than a number of the high end units, such as the GPSMAP 66st, especially coming out but nevertheless played. The eTrex 20x utilizes both GPS and GLONASS systems to lock onto a signal. In places, it did suffer a bit although it was fairly accurate.

We also conducted navigation evaluations to better determine the accuracy of the components. We also marked a waypoint and flagged a place . We needed we are navigated by the device back and walked away. All apparatus navigated us back within 40 to 98 inches of our waypoint. All in all, the unit is fast to attain a signal, but not as precise as higher performing devices.

The ease of the Best Buy winner is exactly what we fell in love with. It’s quite easy to use, although this apparatus does not support elaborate wireless sharing options, a digital compass, or even altimeter. It’s a no-nonsense GPS unit for orienteering functions and basic map.

We couldn’t completely rely on this particular map to navigate from point to point as it only actually contains road (not trail) information. It would be helpful to download maps like GPS File Depot from different sources to supplement your own navigation. A 25K topo map for paths is for browsing all sorts of terrain features, an ideal size. We enjoyed the access to switch the battery. The back cover includes a turn gate screw that is quite easy to take on and off.

This device has a similar menu layout to additional Garmin devices. Its features make the menu easy to navigate. One major downside of the unit (and consistent with the majority of the Garmin GPS units tested) is the base map.

As a lot of the other units have all kinds of other things tacked on, so far as GPS functions go, this unit pretty much covers it. It does not have many (or any) bells and whistles, but most of the other items can be covered with a smartphone, which we had been typically carrying anyways. We found it quite helpful, although we would have liked a barometric altimeter and electronic compass.


The Honzo is a hardtail that has the power to take care of long increases and descents that are nasty. It’s not a standout way on any part of trail while this bicycle is pedal friendly and course worthy. There is build kit $2199, at a price point, A less than desired hard to stomach. When there’s premium quality and/or performance Producers can charge a premium price. The Kona Honzo provides neither.
