Summary: awesome,awesome awesome! gets me to my treestand everytime.the only thing i can say bad about it is if u leave it in your pocket bad things happen.on one occasion somehow the coordinates that i was heading to totally changed when i put it in my pocket.fortunatly,i still had my compass and was able to find my way back.also,sometimes u have to click the joystick a couple times when done for u to mark your waypoint.on a couple ocassions, i clicked it,thinking i marked a...
Summary: Perfect for hunting. I bought this so I wouldn't get lost in unfamiliar woods. Of course it doesn't come with any detailed Topo maps but you can download them from the internet. They're expensive IF you get them from the garmin website but there are plenty of free maps out there you just have to look for them. I was able to find a free Topographic map of the entire state of VA which was great for hunting.
Summary: We picked this up for geocaching and have been having a blast. Easy to use, two AA batteries seems to last a long time. There are lots of free topo maps out there you can load. Good rugged design.
A reasonably priced local map alternative to Garmin.

Summary: This map app works in my etrex 20. There are some quirkiness, but for the price, one gets his money's worth. There are 3 maps that covers N.America, in the SD card package. Each map can be enabled/disabled on the fly, via the eTrex map menu. The map content seems to kick in when the scale is set to 5 miles or less. For example: A lot of local details such as schools, local landmarks (hotels, eateries) show up when the scale is zoom in to about 250 yards or less.
Summary: I love to walk and hike alot. This comes in real handy especially when doing an unfamiliar trail. It is virtually impossible to get lost. It also lets you know when the sun is setting so if you are hiking(or fishing) you allow time to return to your destination before it gets dark. There are numerous functions that I have not even used yet. So far though I am very please.
Summary: I put this in my old Garmin and this worked well, just follow the instructions carefully to load it and don't add an extra extension after the period when renaming the file. There's no way we could've made it through Ireland without the GPS. Also, seller replied to a question quickly and courteously.
