For the thread, other than this problem, I'm very happy with my 810.

So I have been more careful on the computer when doing a route. However, my 510 will eventually stop stating you are off course once you keep going on the pre-planned route. Usually takes my 510 100-200 feet of being on the right route for that notice to stop. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the advice.

Hopefully that might solve it. I'll let you know. Thank you.

If you can't recognize that n=1 sample size is inadequate to indicate a trend, I really don't know what to tell you. Unless you're going to suggest an actual alternative GPS unit for the op, please just stay out of the discussion.
All I ever did was voice an opinion of dissent which was then challenged and twisted around on me for the last 6 pages of this thread to the point where certain people accused me of lying and being full of shit which I have a right to defend against. I never intended more than 1 posting, and my suggestion to the OP is to save his money and buy a cheaper non-GPS unit as I already said. So don't give me shit please I think I've been at least as constructive as you despite the insults.
You made a statement that I didn't agree with and refuted. I'm allowed to don't that, no? You claimed how it needed 4 satellites to be accurate. I showed how I get 6 in my basement. You said it isn't more accurate than 50-200 feet. I showed you <15 feet outside. You made a lot of claims that I have since stated haven't been anything I have experienced. Then you failed to give a better recommendation for those that need power. Then you used a old online article believing that was when GLONASS first started. Too many fails to follow.
And because my experience and observation don't jibe with yours I have less a right to post them than you?? What gives?
The words hypocrite comes to mind in capital letters. You should re-read your replies.
People are just calling you out for misleading and questionable understanding of GPS. As is our prerogative. You still haven't shown any data to support your assertion except for some outdated 6 year old article.
Who is insulting whom??
I gave my opinion based on observation. Thats all. I said save your money its not worth it.
The rest has been response to you mostly due to your insults. And I don't see any more relevant data offered by you than --in my opinion its good- you seem incredibly hypocritical.
