  • Summary: I have used this guy in saltwater for 2 yrs to take me to all of my holes up to 30mi off-shore. It stay in the boat all the time and hasn't let me down. It's smacked the deck hard in heavy seas and never fails!

A great way to get into geocaching and personal navigation

librarymonkey27, Ebay

  • Summary: For the price I paid on Ebay, I thought it was a good deal. The ease of use ... well simple things work out well, but it has taken me some research and more than the Garmin Manual to figure out things like importing way points. All that said, it is a great way to get started with handhelds, I am learning the hobby of Geocaching, as well as recording my outdoor travels and it has been great for that

The BEST Handheld GPS Unit on the market for GEOCACHING or Weekend Hikes

rickeylee48, Ebay
9 November 2012
  • Summary: Simply THE BEST handheld GPS on the market for the money. Inexpensive, easy to use. The most widely used GPS unit for GEOCACHING. As a result geocaching downloads from GEOCACH.com are compatible. It has 24K of onboard memory (not expandable) but enough to download 5 or 6 detailed local USGS topological maps. Battery life about 18 to 19 hours. You'll want to get alkaline AA batteries and a charger.

  • Summary: I use the Garmin eTrex Venture HC GPS Receiver for hunting. One public lands such as Bodcau in North Louisiana. After finding scrapes I am able to go back to the same spot even before daylight to hunt that area. It takes the guess work out knowing exactly where I am in the woods especially on cloudy or rainy days.

Love it!

  • Summary: I use this out on the water for long-distance paddles (That's prone paddling, of course). Its included accessory clip works nicely with my Coastal Eddie water bottle and accessory holder. I don't do anything fancy with it but it's a great tool and the customizable display gives me everything I need with trip time, odometer, heading, speed, compass (either true or magnetic north), etc. It tracks perfectly and the display is very clear. Have had no problems.

  • Summary: For everyone that had something critical to say such as no SD slot I found a bigger number of reviews placing it at the top. I spent three weeks online reading about these and wondering if I should spend more. I am glad I purchased the Venture HC. It is probably what 75% of the GPS purchases should be. The other 25% must be very much tech happy to need more than this offers. I have not a single wish or regret.

Great for Geocaching

JoeBlack, Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: I've only had this GPS for a couple of weeks so there is no way I can speculate on the long-term reliability/durability of the product. All I can say is that it works great for what I wanted it for - Geocaching. The maps included with the unit are rudimentary at best but for Geocaching, that was not a concern. I download the waypoint and follow the arrow. Hey, Presto! Do your homework to make sure this device will meet your needs!
