    Great altimeter. Very accurate.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    This altimeter is very easy to use. I have used it for over a year in the Arizona Deserts and the mountains of Colorado. The range of these two areas it has worked in is from less than 1000 feet to over 12500 feet and it was extremely accurate. It has about a 1% variation which is very very good for a device of this size. I use it velcroed to the dash of my Expedition. It is very easy to adjust if necessary; but , that rarely happens. I recommend this altimeter. Very easy to purchase from and at a good price.

    We took a road trip through several mountain ranges in the U.S. and found that this is a wonderful altimeter for traveling. We kept comparing the shown altitude with signs by the road, and the altimeter was very accurate. We attributed small differences to barometric air pressure changes. We kept the altimeter in its case, and in the open center console of our car, for convenient viewing. It’s nice to be able to view the altitude when we are climbing or descending steep grades. Also, flat plateaus out west are sometimes deceiving, looking flat and not high, but sometimes are at a high altitude. Nice product, appearing to be precision made. Highly recommended.

    I have now used the Sun Altimeter 202 on several hiking trips in the Rocky Mountains, with the same accurate results each time. I recently made sure the altimeter was set before heading up Mt. Bierstadt. When I reached the top the altimeter reading was right where it should have been. The only reason I do not give it a 5 star rating is because the dial you use to set the device can turn if you grab it or aren’t careful about not touching it as you push it into your backpack or clip it on your belt, etc. The case it comes with is handy and mostly prevents that from happening.
    Good device, easy to use, glad I purchased it.

    It does a great job besides the altitude it has the Barimetric pressure so there is some fluctuation and you have to adjust it I live at sea level about 15 ft but depending on the Barimetric pressure it will show a couple hundred feet of difference I just got back from a six week vacation and drove thru 9 states and over mountain passes as high as 11000 feet it was very useful and there are elevation signs at city limits and some passes etc. and we could check it ang it was right on a lot but if it was off you just turn the face to adjust. we just hung it on the mirror.

    I’ve had uniformly bad results with small electronic devices in the last five years. So, I purchased the Sun 202 analog mechanical altimeter. It has been dead on accurate from 750 feet to 6000 feet. As with all barometer driven altimeters, if the weather changes so does the altitude. It’s bigger and clunkier than an electronic altimeter, but then I don’t have to hunt around for that hard to find battery.

    The little leather-like case isn’t good.

    I intend to use the Sun while climbing in Colorado in late Summer so I’ll see how it fares when taken close to its upper limit. My old electronic altimeter which finally broke after 20 years and before the advent of Chinese manufacturing would become progressively more innacurate as I approached the top of my climbs above 14,000 feet.

    Used to above 12000 ft. in Colorado. Compared to iPhone apps and is apparently very accurate. If going wilderness exploring very helpful as an addition to 7.5 minute contour maps.
