      Comments about GARMIN eTrex 20 GPS:

      This is a great hand-held GPS for the casual hiker. The best features are the stats: time moving, distance hiked, average speed, time to sunset, etc. It even provides the heading and elevation based on the satelite signal. The screen is a little small, so reading the maps is not that easy. The toggle button makes it easy to scroll through the menus. The unit may need to be on a lanyard to maintain contact with the satelites, so I would not put it in your backpack while in use.

        Great GPS, I use it with the 24k topo maps. I use it mostly for hiking and hunting, the way points are amazing and let me easily navigate back to views, tree stands, etc

        Comments about GARMIN eTrex 20 GPS:

        I have had the e trex out for four outings so far. One set of AA's lasted through three hikes. It is loaded with features, stopwatch, calculator, determine the area, but only has a few buttons... difficult to use. I still can't get to see the maps of any of the hikes I have archived displayed on my computer.

        Comments about GARMIN eTrex 20 GPS:

        Picked up this GPS for my ATV. Quite happy with it so far. Construction is solid and the color screen is nice. The menus do take some getting used to though. You probably will want to load some topographic type maps if you are going to be biking or off-roading. You can find some free websites that have these available. Make sure to also download the free Basecamp software from the Garmin website so you can load them up. Some others have reported an issue with the map not updating when moving at slow speeds but I have not seen that problem on my particular unit. Just update the firmware if you have that problem.

        This unit was good, but we are considering moving up to the larger 3" or 4" screen.

          Topo maps cost 1/2 the price of the unit!
          I expected to use my new etrex 20 for hiking right out of the box which the adds tend to indicate.
