  • GARMIN eTrex 30 GPS

    Memory, mapping, a color screen and new internals, the Garmin eTrex may have a familiar name, but it's a totally new GPS for your adventures.

    Features/Benefits:

    • The new eTrex 30 retains the core functionality, rugged construction, affordability and long battery life of the original eTrex series
    • eTrex 30 has an enhanced 2.2 inch 65K color, sunlight readable display
    • A built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level
    • Also added is a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time
    • Compatible with TOPO 24K, BirdsEye Satellite imagery and even City Navigator NT maps which allows turn-by-turn directions
    • eTrex 30 lets you share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS devices
    • eTrex 30 supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit
    • eTrex 30 stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs
    • 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
    • Using GLONASS satellites allows the eTrex to lock-on up to 20% faster and track up to 24 more satellites than when using GPS alone

    Comments about GARMIN eTrex 30 GPS:

    This model is an improved version of the Garmin Vista. The accuracy, including the altimeter, is great. The manual is definitely lacking, but by reading the professional reviews and experimenting, you can figure it out. The map which comes loaded on the unit is pathetic (missing major highways)but there are terrific free maps available for download that work with Base Camp which you download free from Garmin. I use my GPS mostly for work. I really like the Base Camp feature that links my data right up with Google Earth.

    Easy to connect to the computer and download catches.

    I would have liked a printed manual with ALL instructions and features. It took me a long time to understand all the controls
