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.
Summary: I retuned it because it was to hard for me to catch on to . I had an old Garmin that was simple to work . Maybe this one was too if I could of just got it figured out. Received my purchase promptly and was no problem to return
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.
