Summary: Bought by mistake--should have read the description better. Can't update with garmin trail maps. That being said, not a bad "where did I go/come from" GPS--in other words, a bread trail. Used on recent trip. Tracked trail perfectly.
Summary: Apparently, either this thing doesn't actually work or we just cannot figure it out. Entering coordinates is a pain, and we have not been successful even once. I got it for my husband for Christmas and we didn't really try to use it until spring, so it's too late to return it.
Summary: I have a Garmin for my car which I would rate as"fair". I usually map out where I am going using Google Maps and make sketches. Trusting the Garmin is problematic. However, for walking around an unfamiliar city I wanted a Garmin-like guide so I bought the eTreux 10. The instructions are useless.

Summary: In my opinion, this is a dangerous GPS. I does not offer ROAD DRIVING directions to a destination. It points an arrow in the direction of the destination... and indicates the distance to the destination AS THE CROW FLIES!!! Most of the time, you cannot drive to a destination in a straight line...
Summary: This item is being returned as I speak. We were hoping this GPS would have had similar functions to the eTrex HC I currently own. It does not have detailed maps, the tracking feature was slow to react to movement, and the compass didn't keep a true "North".
Excerpt: Not as user friendly as my 8 year old eTrex. It takes more steps to a get a result.
Screen box sizes are small and somewhat difficult to read under boating conditions.Perhaps I should have ordered a more expensive model.
Summary: I sent this back because I soon realised after I took it out of the box that it was completely unsuitable for anything. I only wanted it for geocaching but the map on this has absolutely no roads! It's just some rubbish fuzzy shape of the whole of the country.
Despite proving very useful it has recently given up

Summary: I bought my eTrex 10 in February 2014. Despite proving very useful it has recently given up. The device appears to have virtually "exploded." The screen looks like the victim of a nuclear explosion. I have had two eTrex Hs before.
