Garmin eTrex Summit GPS receiver Review

Great GPS, less accurate than I would like

  • Summary: This GPS is a great help for any kind of GPS work you would need to do that didn't require you to be any closer than about 20 feet. Within 20 feet is is inprecise. I've found that the altimeter needs regular calibration to be accurate as well. Too bad it doesn't come standard with an A/C adapter.

  • Summary: I use it when I go sking, so I see how fast I can go, I use it for biking, so I can tell how far I have gone. I can be in the middle of my two story house and still get a signal (It takes about 10 minutes though) Outside it will pick up a signal in under 30secconds. Its Great!

  • Summary: I have several GPS for different uses. The most professional one is a Raytheon Chartplotter 630 on my motoryacht. The E-Trex Summit I bought to use for trekking and to mark the GPS location on dive trips with dive operators. They are VERY reluctant to reveal the GPS dive location.

  • Summary: My eyes were wide the first time I turned on this unit. I couldn't believe that it was talking to satellites in space. The up side: It is fun technology! I've enjoyed having this unit on my bike.

eTrex Summit Fun, Forest Fires & Work too...

4 October 2005
  • Summary: I bought my eTrex Summit for Forest Fire GPS mapping support. I knew I would get a +/- of 12'-20'and for most forest fire support this is acceptable to us. I also use it for the altimeter at our helicopter landing fields, once calibrated it seems to stay relative based on at least 100 meters from...

  • Summary: I use the eTrex Summit on my bicycle. I get my trip distance, net climbing, speed, average speed, time of day, sunset, etc from this unit. I also hook it up to my laptop and mapping software for road trips. Now my wife doesn't yell at me to ask directions!
