half-assed product review: GSSport GH-561 Boomerang GPS Device

A quick, six-minute review of the GSSport GH-561 Boomerang GPS device, where I show the device powering on and describe how to save a waypoint.

In a nutshell:

— Device powers on to the compass. This needlessly drains the battery, and there should be a way to disable it.

— The lanyard should be relocated to the bottom of the unit.

— Saving a waypoint requires the user to click three different buttons. This should be more intuitive and user-friendly. Saving a waypoint should only require a user to click the same button twice — once to save and again to confirm.

— USB charging cover is poorly made and doesn’t stay in place.
