Brunton Nomad V2 Pro Digital Altimeteris rated3.0out of5by2.
Rated2out of5byfromNot really impressedI am a backpacker and I wanted to have a the altimeter as an added navigational tool and I thought the barometer would be neat to help me keep a weather eye. Now this is my first altimeter so this may be just an inherent flaw, but the altimeter depends on the barometer and vice versus. So sitting in my home, if I drop it off the table it will immediately register a four foot change in altitude. However, when a storm blows across all of a sudden my home has gained over 200 feet in elevation (must have been some storm). You can manually reset the altimeter, but it just gives me this element of distrust that I don't need when I am trying to navigate. The other problem is that it is much larger than I anticipated. It claims to be "no larger than your standard compass." Maybe that is true if you are walking around with a Magic 8 Ball sized nautical compass. I thought it would be about the size of a big watch. But the face is bigger than a silver dollar and the body is about the same width as the short edge of a dollar bill and the length is about 3/4 of a dollar bill (U.S.) and it is as thick as a Reeses Peanut Butter cup. I really do not like the compass feature. You have to push a button to get it to show you the compass and you can see your heading for about 10 seconds and then it clears out for some reason and you have to keep hitting the button to show your heading. Overall, it is not intuitive to use, it is clunky in its programming and in its physical design, it is too heavy for my fellow ounce-counters and too pricey for my fellow penny-pinchers. I have had it for about two years and have never convinced myself to put it in my backpack.
