Summary: The Garmin eTrex H Handheld GPS Receiver is a nice little unit. I haven't gotten to work with too much because of the cold and snow but sunny days are ahead. I bought it for my wifes get home bag with stops entered along the way.
Summary: The eTrex 10 has the same GPS receiver as the costly 20 and 30, without maps. If you can read the B&W screen, the 10 is perfect. Its reliable, tough, and waterproof. Lithium AAs, 60+ hrs and not exhaust the batteries, GPS+WAAS+GLONASS on. With NiMH rechargeables, 33 hrs, 41 hours with GPS ON only.
Pros: Accurate, Drop Resistant, Easy Firmware Upgrade, Easy Pc Connections, Intuitive Menu, Monochrome Screen, Quick Navigation, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception, Simple Controls, Very Long Battery Life, Waterproof
Cons: Joystick, Monochrome Screen, No Lanyard, No Map, Poor Manual
Summary: Bought this so my friend and I could track our hikes instead of using our phones. Haven't utilized all the features except carrying it on our routes and getting time, distance, and other measurements. Simple to use if you need these features but has more if you spend time with the manual and device.
Durable, light weight, and very accurate in heavy cover/timber.

Summary: I purchased this product for the sole purposes of hiking and geocaching. The OS and the format for operation are both very user friendly and a make this a great item for people to acquaint themselves with before taking up more complex techs. Way to go Garmin!
Summary: I bought the Garmin eTrex H mainly for hiking. It picks up satellite signals fast, usually in less than 45 seconds in open areas, with ten to eleven satellite signals. The accuracy is about 10 to 15 feet.
