Disapointing

Amazon
2 September 2008
  • 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.

Cheap, yes-- but not a good option for geocachers

Jacquelyn Lavaque "buzzygirl39", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a yellow Garmin eTrex GPS about a year ago. My main reason for buying it was because I learned about the sport called 'geocaching', and, knowing little about these devices at that point, I purchased one on the advice of a couple of friends.

NOT waterprof

Ronald R. Riesbeck "Ron", Amazon
8 January 2001
  • Summary: I bought one of these units because of its waterproof rating. That is 30 minutes at 3.3 feet. Forget that one. The battery compartment isn't rated for this.....so it leaks big time. I called Garmin about this and they said that nothing can be done. There is no fix. This was December 2000.

Low sensitivity

Mj Dos Reis Barros, Amazon
19 December 2008
  • Summary: Please be aware that this is the older model. The high sensitivity newer model is only £1 more expensive and is WAAS enabled. The difference in accuracy and tracking of satellites is dramatic. Used the newer version for Geocaching and could locate the caches easily to sometimes even less than 1m!

  • Excerpt: Я бы себе не взял. А вот модель 62 с выносной антенной говорят куда лучше. Я так думаю надо сразу брать хороший навигатор или пока держать компас с собой !
  • Pros: Пыле-влаго защита
  • Cons: Плохо ловит в лесу. Брали в псковскую обл . Как в лес то он видит максимум два спутника а для навигации этого мало. Всю неделю он был снами и не разу по настоящему не пригодится. А вот компас старый. Лучше всех похвал с ним и в лес идти не страшно!
