Love the color screen and extra map storage feature.
5 September 2011
Summary: Super gps! I added road maps and they work great. The color screen is a super feature. I have used it on the road and geocaching. I stores waypoints and works great with all of my computers regarless of which WIndows operating system I use.
Summary: I just recenlty drove from Wisconsin to Florida with my family, and I used this GPS system. It was awesome! I was able to find the shortest and best routes, and even my wife had no problem finding her way through Disney once we arrived. I recommend this to anyone.
A Device For Every Tackle Box: Garmin eTrex Venture GPS
4 May 2010
Summary: The Garmin eTrex Venture is a tool every fisherman's tackle box should include. In fact, the Garmin eTrex Venture is a device every sportsman, camper or outdoors person should have. The Garmin eTrex is equipped with WAAS that enables users to get a satellite signal no matter how dense the terrain. It works with dense fog, clouds and other annoying weather conditions. It is a GPS plain and simple. There are no fancy features other than an excellent GPS.
Summary: I purchased this GPS so my family could start to go geocaching. It has been awesome. I don't think it has ever lost coverage even though we are sometimes in the thick woods. The batteries also last a long time. I would highly recommend this product.
Summary: Garmin makes a great number of high quality handheld GPS devices. I particularly chose this one for hiking and remote camping uses. Specifically, I purchased a 2 GB mini memory card (SanDisk) and then the Garmin US TOPO 24K (National Parks East, for starts). I was able to pick specific quadrants from the US TOPO CD software and download it to my Garmin handheld through my PC (MAC also works). It worked perfectly.
Summary: Works perfect!
Great Battery life (30 hours on 2 rayovac AA)!
Awesome color screen!
Easy navigation in the menus!
Remember, this unit does not come with maps or a micro SD card. The SD card can be found on ebay for cheap ( I bought my maps at Garmin for $100/map.
