Summary: We have just started geocaching and even though this is an older model gps, it has everything we need to get the job done. It has download capabilities for paperless caching which seems to be a big thing with cachers these days. We haven't been deep in the mountains yet but so far it has had no trouble keeping satelite connection.
Summary: Purchased this GPS to track waypoints of trees. Unit was fairly easy to use, but could use some upgrades on menu navigation and the ability to customize. Overall, unit was worked very well for the price. Battery life seems good as well.
Summary: Started with the basic Etrex years ago and moved up to the Summit HC because of the electronic compass and mapping availablitiy. Looking forward to taking it atving in the near future. Garmin products are very good and pricing keeps getting better.
