Summary: Went to Eastern OR for Bow Season hunting Deer,Elk and was not let down by how great these are.Never been in that area before and did a 7 mile hike through the woods back to camp where I had dropped a pin location earlier in the day.At first it didn't sync up well with other Garmin radios but we...
Summary: Great product. There are a few things I would change, as in any relatively complex item. It would be nice if it kept constant tabs on the people in your group, it only tells you where they are when they update it. Unless we did not understand how it worked, which is a possibility.
Summary: I purchased three Rino 610 GPS radios for a fishing trip on a large lake in Canada. The intent was to keep each boat in our party in voice contact when within a range of 2 miles, and to provide the location of each boat when beyond the 2 mile voice range.
Summary: I bought a pair of these radios from Cabelas a week ago and I am very happy with them so far. My wife and I used these on a mushroom hunting trip (morels) and they were great for keeping track of each other in the woods and marking our secret hunting locations.
Inexpensive and accurate but about as basic as they come.

Summary: It's ok for what it is but don't expect a lot of fancy features. It seems to be very accurate and batteries last a LONG time. A touchscreen would be a big benefit but you'll pay a lot more for it. I'm in Idaho and both free and purchased Idaho maps work great. But then I downloaded maps for OR & WA.
Less than I expected out of the box (but better after spending more $$).

Summary: Having had a Garmin automobile GPS unit for several years now, I had high expectations when I received the eTrex20 as a gift. What I discovered was that it has very limited usefulness right out of the box: where I live, it shows only major streets, highways, rivers and lakes on a rather nondescript...
Summary: Doesn't seem as user friendly as my Rino 530 Hcx but it probably takes getting used to. I do like the touch screen feature. Both gps and radio work very well in remote areas where I've used them.
Great piece of mind when we go different directions

Summary: Bought a pair of these for my wife and I for hunting and hiking. Great piece of mind when we go different directions. We can keep track of each other especially when we are a mile apart. We used these in NW and NE WYOMING, then N.
