  • Excerpt:   One of the best values in an affordable GPS handheld for outdoor use we’ve seen, the eTrex® from Garmin fits cutting edge GPS navigation into a very compact and easy-to-use device featuring a WAAS-enabled receiver, 22 hours of battery life (2 AA) and a waterproof design that can take a dunk in the lake or sea and still deliver highly accurate GPS data. The rugged eTrex® can store up to 500 waypoints and up to 10 saved tracks (up to 10,000 points in all).

  • Excerpt: This GPS unit has a good page sequence to the winner (although it lacks an elevation data page telling you how high you’ve climbed etc). Hooking it up to your computer and downloading routes is also very simple, but you need to buy the data cable separately (around £27). Inputting route co-ordinates by hand is fairly straightforward, but there’s no ...

Garmin eTrex

PC Magazine

  • Excerpt: The Garmin eTrex is a very basic GPS receiver that performs most of the same functions as the original eTrex (introduced about three years ago), including position fix, route tracking, and backtracking to your original position. Unfortunately, it offers little else. It's very similar in form factor to its brethren the Garmen eTrex Vista at 4.4 by 2.0 by 1.2 inches (HWD).

  • Conclusion: I think it's appropriate to compare the eTrex to the Geko 201 because they're bothbasic receivers in roughly the same price range. Since the eTrex has been available longer than the Gekos the price of the eTrex has come down. The advantages of the eTrex over the Geko 201 are: 1) less expensive; 2) larger display; 3) longer battery life; 4) some users may find the buttons are easier to use.
  • Pros: Capable of only one route., No map support.
  • Cons: The manual walks you through a "Goto" exercise - a good way to learn its use., PC interface

Produkttest Garmin eTrex

  • Conclusion: Meiner Meinung nach ist das eTrex für denjenigen ein tolles Gerät, der dieses regelmäßig auf Touren einsetzt. Zur gelegentlichen Navigation wird es wohl niemand unbedingt benötigen. Auch wird die ganze Sache erst durch das optionale Zubehör interessant, und die Möglichkeit, Wanderrouten zu tauschen, ist in diesem Zusammenhang sicherlich nicht schlecht. Leider muss man allerdings hierfür noch mal in die Geldbörse fassen.
