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.
Summary: We purchased these four Garmins for our four grandchildren so that they could go geocaching this summer. We have purchased other Garmin GPSs and have been extremely pleased so Garmin was our choice. The eTrex Venture CX was the particular product we chose because if offered the long battery life, color display, compass, high number of way points and tracks and fantastic price.
