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... the driver needs a road... NOT an arrow!!! . This type of reckless GPSing is what gets people lost or stuck in unmanagable driving conditions.
Arbitrary, not user friendly, poor instructions, and imprecise

Summary: Who is writing these rave reviews I do not know. But as someone who has been using electronics hours a day for thirty years, I was amazed at the lack of instructions for the Garmin etrex 10. Muddling through it myself, I would push the enter button, and all too often, the device would take me somewhere entirely different than it should have. "Back" didn't take me to the previous step, but rather somewhere random.
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". Even though the menu is much easier to navigate, we were not impressed with this unit.
Summary: Very unuser friendly waypoints show up as numders if you dont remember what number is what you have to change screens then open waypoint up to see the name the battries do not last even close to the time they claim. The compass locks at times and can be turned 360 degrees with out moving, the only good point it has is it locks onto Sats fast spend a little more or you wont be happy.
Summary: Good delivery, reasonable price. Used it once, and it is now at the bottom of a corner some where in the house, might spend time to look for it a year later. Do not know how to use it after spent a few hours watching video in the net. As a person who repair my computers, and build my own computers. Why sell this product?
Summary: I was looking for a simple replacement GPS to continue geocaching after mine was lost in India. I have been geocaching for 3 years and was keen to resume. I thought the the geocache bundle would be a useful addition. This GPS is geared solely for Open Caching - a very poor British relative of the global geocaching I had been used to. I have found it very difficult to use, even after downloading some instructions from the internet. I feel I have wasted my money.
