Summary: Bought six to add to the number we have at an Outdoor Ed camp for sixth and fifth grades. Now every student has one in hand. Easy to use, finally figured out how to load/add waypoints, and that you have to start moving in order to have it guide you. Easy to teach with a poster of the unit and reminder of which button is which. Only complaint - rubber surround with buttons loosens from the unit.
Summary: The display is clear for its size. It is a hard to figure out had to got to youtube to learn how to use all the pages on it. Has a little trouble staying it contact with the satlites but it tracks up to 12 at a time so it is alway in contacted with some. if you are looking for a basic hiking gps this one will work out good for you.
Summary: Maybe its not the best GPS out there, but for the price it is a great purchase. I like things simple and this GPS is exactly that: no fancy complications. I only hope it will last, no way to tell about that right now.
Summary: Great basic GPS. I bought this one to replace the same version I owned for 13 years. That one finally went out on me after years of hard work. This GPS is great for supplementing other nav systems.
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. (It's also extremely compact!
Summary: this is a nice little gpsr for geocaching, really good for beginner or a backup. nothing fancy about it, no camera, black and white display, compass loses direction when you stop moveing. It does point to your target, gets you within a few feet too. really short learning curve to figure out how to use it. and it does light up for night hunts. 5 buttons, power, page, enter, up, down. no joy stick so less likely to break or snap off. very good basic unit.
