Fine but took a long time to get a signal.

  • Summary: I bought this refurbished and it was extremely inexpensive (compared to other units as well as new units). I was going on a 3-day backpacking trip in Yosemite, and the trails are well-marked. I really only needed it to see how far away I was from different points on the trail.

  • Summary: The Etrex series is obsolete and this is not what real GPS geeks will want. Examples of archaic features: it comes with an RS32 nine-pin serial pot cord which - useless with a laptop and it is incompatible with map data cards.

The reception will be lost in deep forest cover (that's why you carry that compass too)but knowing this up front you can adjust line of travel.

21 October 2011
  • Summary: The eTrex Venture was purchased to replace a much older Garmin unit that was lost at the airport. The Venture is a disappointment in every respect.

  • Summary: I've only used the Garmin eTrex Venture GPS unit for about a week or so, but it seems to work great. My sons like to geocache, and there have been several that they could not find over the years, but once we got this GPS system... they found their geocaches easily.

  • Summary: I have used GPS for years for flying to driving, but a lumber man turned me on to this inexpensive gadget as an invaluable tool for calculating acreage for fertilization or liming of fields.
