Garmin has serious quality control issues

James S., Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I wish I could say that I've had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Garmin products, but this has not been the case. I have an eTrex H which works well but which has a weak anchor for the wrist strap (it broke off when I pulled it out of my pocket and had to climb down into a ravine to...

Garmin shows the way.

Larry Johnson, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Purchased the eTrex H for indicating speed and distance while working out in my kayak. Being waterproof was of prime concern. The eTrex is easy to use and worked great right out of the box. Links up to satellites quickly and operates flawlessly under a variety of weather and lighting conditions.

My First Time

S. Quarders "gadget guy", Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: This is a first for me. I spent a lot of time researching various Brands and models of hand held GPS. It really comes down to "What am "I" going to use it for. The answer was pretty simple, all I want to do, at this time anyway, is store info so I can get back to a particular spot on a lake or in a...

Everything I needed and not a thing more.

Avidreader "avidreader5555", Amazon

  • Summary: As a kayak/angler, this very very affordable Garmin eTrex hand held GPS is terrific. A good waterproof map and the eTrex provide me with all I need to navigate through the 10,000 Islands and inshore waters of Southwest Florida without getting hopelessly lost.

Got me lost second time out!

Matthew J. Sipes, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: The first time I used the eTrex H I tried to keep it on to use the "Backtrack" function but it would not stay powered up more than an hour or so. So that didn't work. The next time out I set a waypoint at my truck but when I used the gps to navigate back to it it took me to some random point in the...

for price, good item

j-p, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: Bought for hunting, works fine for marking waypoints and finding route back out. Did not come with a cable and the one that fits is a serial type which means you will most likely need an adapter cable with a USB. These cost almost as much as what I paid for the eTrex.

Used for Hunting

Michael, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: I use this GPS mainly just to find a few select ponds deep inside some public land for hunting purposes. Navigating through the screens can be frustrating but after about 5 minutes of trial and error I find I can access anything desired.
