I would recommend this to anyone using it for similar uses.

Summary: This unit is excellent for sport navigation, and is used primarily for Geo-caching and other outdoor activities. Easy to use, and menu's are straight forward. Display could be a bit easier to see in strong daylight, but it serves it's purpose well.
Summary: Easy to use, picks up satalites quickly, even in the house. only four function buttons, easy for one hand opperation. I was told by a freind that the summit was simple to use and he was right. I bought it used and it still works good, I got a good deal for $54.00.
Summary: i bought this because it was cheap and i want to get into geocaching well i was surprised at how nice of a unit it is you do need a terrain map to use with it as with any high tech stuff learn to use a compass so when your batteries die you won't up the creek without a paddle
Summary: I purchased a factory refurbished Garmin eTrex Summit hand held GPS receiver. The main reason I chose this model was for the price and features it had. This GPS will be used for geocaching and not for navigation in a vehicle. You could use it for driving off road but it does not have any street map type of navigation so you would need to set way points in order to navigate.
Summary: I HAVE NEVER USED THE ITEM. I LIKE THE SIZE AND WHAT I READ ABOUT THE FEATURES. I HAVE A HAND HELD GPS BUT I HAD MISPLACED IT SO I PURCHASED THE SUMMIT THE AFTER IT CAME IN I FOUND MY REGULAR GPS WHICH I HAD PURCHASED MANY YEARS AGO ON EBAY. I LIKE IT BECAUSE I AM USED TO WORKING WITH IT. NOW I WILL BE LOOKING TO SELL THE ETREX. I LOVE EBAY. MY WIFE SAYS I AM ADDICTED TO IT. LOL. IT IS THE CHALLENGE TO TRY AND OUTSMART THE OTHER BIDDERS FOR SOMETHING I WANT.
