Excerpt: Nothing amazing about this product. But being a simple outdoor guy I wanted a toy for geocaching, simple navigation and track making. This GPS is worth the money if you just want a simple navigation tool. I am very happy with it.
Summary: The eTrec 10 was not what I expected. The world wide base map is a joke. It shows the outline of Countries and in the US the borders of states with some large cities located. there is no TOPO (road or lakes) shown and therefore no visual reference point for your location. I had no problems with my Walmart purchase on line, the in-store pick up nor was there any problem returning the item within the specified 15 day electronic item return period.
Summary: Please note, I am reviewing solely on what I have seen of the product thus far. It is a Christmas gift for my nephews, and it looks to be the perfect starter kit for geocaching. The device itself looks user friendly, and the accessories are just what they need to get started.
Summary: I'm using this only for geocaching and found it was way better then the ap on my phone. Generally gets me within 3 feet of a cache unless I'm around something metal and even then gets me closer then the ap. And when in doubt follow the pointer! This gets 4 stars mainly because it does take a lot of button pushing to get things done but is OK once you get used to it.
Summary: This GPS doesn't have all the bells and whistles that higher priced units have. It doesn't have topo maps but if you are looking for a basic GPS to locate waypoints, and get you to and from them again at a low price, you will be very happy with this unit. It does the job it is intended to do very well. Very easy to use and get familiar with after a few minutes of playing around with it before you head out into the woods or water.

Summary: I used a Garmin GPS several years ago and loved it. It did very few things and was simple to use. I can not say the same for this device. I became very frustrated trying to use it (FYI I am not a tech illiterate and use Linux from the command line). If I bought another GPS, I would go to a store and try several different ones and probably not buy this one. I found much of my frustration due to the over sensitivity of the joy-stick which was no joy.
