eTrex 10 isn't the best

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • 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.

Trying to figure it out

Laura, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • 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.

Hopeless

A Fan, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • 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.

I had high hopes... but they were smashed

Lavon Sargent "Say something about yourself!", Amazon
22 September 2013
  • 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...

Arbitrary, not user friendly, poor instructions, and imprecise

J. Jaeger "Jonathan Quick", Amazon
31 August 2013
  • 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.

Not What I Expected

Melinda, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • 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".

disappointment

the aae, Harvey Norman
10 August 2015
  • 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.

Rubbish

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 March 2015
  • 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

Sturmason, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • 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.
