Easy to track distance for a good price

allmanbb69, Ebay
11 January 2014
  • 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.

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...

  • Summary: I bought this GPSr a couple of years ago to use primarily for Geocaching. It has served me pretty well during that time but there are some aspects that make it a bit of a hassle to work with.

A little too basic

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: Pros: light, small, fast to fix Cons: No screen to display current position...that's a must have feature. Best to get the next model "up" The only way to know your current position is to make it a waypoint (storage of which is then optional)

OK GPS for the price

  • Summary: I owned (and lost) an earlier Garmin E-trex so knew what to expect. First trip with this one the "enter" button became very very difficult to push, to the point where I needed to use a blunt implement to push it (no amount of finger pressure would work - finger pads too soft).

Good basic unit - but ...

DIY Billy, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very good and basic unit. It does the job for me when I go hunting to find my way back. I mark my starting point and any waypoints and use that to find my way back. It is also very accurate and I always get good reception in the woods. There are a couple of things I don't like about it.

  • Summary: I definitely had problems with my original eTrex-H. First-time startup could not detect a navigable satellite signal; failed 6 times. I went so far as to climb on my roof; still no navigable signal detected.

  • Summary: Would not recommend the etrex-H. When received my first etrex-H took 6 attempts to acquire a navigable signal. On each attempt the etrex-H shut itself off. On two hikes the etrex-H shut itself off in less than 4 hours (new batteries each hike) making the backtrack feature worthless.
