Summary: The Garmin Etrex, at under $100, is no doubt the best GPS unit in that price range. There's no real mapping capability, but it is perfect for saving and finding locations...it's just as fast and accurate as expensive models. Unfortunately, it's discontinued, but can still be found.
Summary: Not only was this product packaged as advertised. It was delivered promptly and what a great product. When I hunt I go into very rough terrain and I go way in where most other hunters would never go. My new etrex always brings me right back to my truck or location I desire.

Summary: I purchased a refurbished model of the Garmin eTrex Handheld. I received it within the stated shipping period and in excellent condition. Upon opening the package, I thought there may have been a mistake. The shipped unit looked brand new. No blemishes or scratches anywhere.
Summary: Ive been using this in my small boat, and it has been excellent. I usually pop it into a ziplock baggy though, because my boat takes in a of water on windy days. I've flooded them in past by taking them diving, so find a waterproof phone case or something robust, then you can tuck it into your...
Summary: The Garmin eTrex is a great handheld GPS for those who are looking for an inexpensive solution for geocaching or other needs. Simple and easy to use, this GPS is also accurate to within 3 meters. It also has a hunting and fishing feature which is a useful tool for the hunter and fisherman.
Summary: I have used E-Trex for several outdoor activities: running, hiking, biking, x-Country skiing, kayaking and inline skating. I can put the E-Trex in my pocket - do whatever activity is on the menu - and end up accurate odometer readings. Think of it?
Summary: I was really happy for about the first couple days having the etrex. Its very realiably built and simple. After about four days having it however, I realized that it really is a waste of money. Taking it hiking is just not really fun... The etrex is a little over simple.
