Great gear 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: hotham15, 2013-06-13

I bought one of these refurbished from an online retailer for $280 and it came with all the accessories.

I've used it for about 200 jumps and it does everything exteremely well and turn itself on if you forget to. Add in the light, swoop alarms, ff alarms and rechargeable usb batteries and surely its the best out there.

If you hook it up to a digital logbook like paralog, then you can say goodbye to the tedious paper logbooks.

Another jumper in love! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Lindenwood, 2012-09-24

I am another one of those guys who gets more from numbers than a needle position. Out of a half-second glance, I can get a more complete grasp of my altitude from the two large digits than I can seeing a needle's relative position on a dial. And then, of course, there are the sweet logging features (my standard fallrate is THAT slow? :P ), the backlit face (turned out to be the "post-sunset" load), the straight-forward navigation, and small size and light weight (I never took it off, even while packing).

I highly recommend it to my fellow left-brain jumpers out there who feel more at ease with numbers than with pictures. And the logging features a little bits here and there (rate of climb, time to altitude, clock, etc) are a big gob of icing on the cake.

N3 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: sdls, 2012-06-17

I'm very satisfied on N3, I've used it now for ~400 jumps and it has never failed.

It shows always when you'll be at target altitude. It assumes you are going to the same altitude as you were on your last jump. I'd like that I could manually change target altitude as I almost every time jump from different altitude.

Works great with Paralog on Mac too.
