  • GARMIN eTrex 20 GPS

    An improved interface and worldwide basemap, the Garmin eTrex is an entirely new device poised for new adventures.

    Features/Benefits:

    • The new eTrex 20 retains the core functionality, rugged construction, affordability and long battery life of the original eTrex
    • eTrex 20 has an enhanced 2.2 in 65K color, sunlight readable display
    • With an array of compatible mounts, eTrex 20 is designed for use on ATV’s, bicycles, in boats, as a handheld or in your car
    • Add City Navigator NT maps to enable turn-by-turn driving directions
    • With its microSD card slot and 1.7 GB of internal memory, eTrex 20 lets you load maps and hit the trail
    • Compatible with TOPO 24K, BirdsEye Satellite imagery and City Navigator NT maps
    • Both durable and waterproof, the eTrex will withstand dust, dirt, humidity and water
    • eTrex 20 supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit
    • Visit OpenCaching.com to start your geocaching adventure. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency
    • eTrex 20 stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs
    • High-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, eTrex 20 locates your position quickly and maintains it even in heavy cover and deep canyons
    • The new eTrex series is the first-ever consumer-grade receivers that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously
    • GLONASS is a system developed by the Russian Federation that will be fully operational in 2012
    • When using GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to “lock on” to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS
    • Using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using GPS alone

      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.

          Comments about GARMIN eTrex 20 GPS:

          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.
