    My first GPS was the original eTrex and has been very good over the years. I upgraded to the eTrex 10 because I needed a second GPS and thought the extra sensitivity and memory would prove usueful. The first thing I liked was the easy to use toggle switch on the front of the eTrex 10 which makes the inputting of coordinates so much easier; the use of very stiff “enter” button with the old eTrex would often result in a tender thumb after a long session of inputting data. To judge the claims of improved sensitivity I went for a walk in a heavily wooded area with both my GPS units. Before entering the woods both GPS units were claiming to know my location within 3mt. As I entered the woods my eTrex’s accuracy changed to 5 and then 8mt, the eTrex 10 stayed at 3mt. By the time I was well under cover the eTrex 10 was reading 5mt and 8mt when standing next to large tree trunks. By comparison the eTrex was reading 10 to 20mt. Generally the eTrex 10 appears to be 2 to 3 times more accurate than my old eTrex. Having the extra memory with the eTrex 10 means that no longer do I have to delete routes to make room for new ones. Finally another bonus is when inputting a linear route only one direction needs to be stored as the eTrex 10 can reverse routes with a simple press of a button. Overall an excellent and simple to use GPS and if as reliable as my old unit well worth the money.

    I purchased this last minute, I intended to borrow a friend’s older version to use on a 20 mile hike across Dartmoor but decided to go ahead and purchase one for myself as I knew I would use it. I’m certainly not disappointed.

    The trip across Dartmoor was for charity and the weather seemed to know it. Thick, late summer fog shrouded us all day and although the map said there were paths we quickly discovered there weren’t any! This thing literally saved us from getting lost in the fog (visibility was down to 20 metres). I wasn’t looking for fancy map screens or anything like that, I just needed something that was going to give me a UK OS grid reference and this does. The batteries lasted ages (the walk was around 9 hours and it was fine, on constantly – 2 AA batteries). It seemed very accurate or at least using it in combination with a map and compass I had no problem getting somewhere with some pacing and micro-navigation so I assume it was pretty accurate! Acquiring signal was also no challenge. I get very warm and sweaty at some points and I had it parked on an inside pocket some of the way and it worked perfectly fine despite being in a sauna! Additionally it rained lightly for some parts of the trip and again, was absolutely fine.

    It has some other interesting features like using it with mapping software which I use frequently (not tried that yet) and it has a ‘nipple scroll’ which is extremely handy for navigating menus quickly. It did take some time getting my head around where everything was and the manual which came with it I felt missed a lot of information out so I had to go hunting on forums.

    I think this is a great gadget and for the price, brilliant. Highly recommended for the typical hiker.

    It is very difficult to give a true Star Rating as this little cheap satnav is really very good for mountaineers/adventure travel worldwide but the instructions for its use are woefully inadequate!!! I bought it as I needed a satnav for a ski tour in Norway.

    Good points are: Nice hand size – rugged – water proof – takes 2 x AA batteries (lithium for cold weather) – has map grids for most countries and UTM (the km2 grid standard for outdoor maps in countires like Norway who don’t have their own grid system) – the displays for ‘Map’ and ‘Compass’ can be customised to show up to 4 other pieces of information (such as distance to next waypoint or bearing to next waypoint) from a long list of options – information inputing is not too difficult using menues and toggle.

    The bad points: The manual supplied and the longer downloadable version from Garmin are totally inadequate. This little device is a very capable satnav for the outdoor adventurer but it took me hours and hours of research on Google and various forums to find out how to set the device up for travel in the Norwegian mountains using it in conjuntion with the 1:50,000 Turkart maps. I basically had to undertake a tutorial in UTM mapping and look up the area I was going to on a worldwide UTM chart to initialise the set-up. The language used in the Garmin manual is complex jargon that I had to learn the meaning of before I could follow the manual. Even then, the manual just gave a brief overview of a feature rather than a detailed guide to using it. Even working out how to set-up the device for use with UK Ordnance Survey maps is not explained in the manual – I had to go to a UK mountaineering forum to find out.

    Most outdoor adventurers want to be able to pre-load waypoints using grid references taken from the local 1:50000 or 1:25000 maps of the mountain area they are visiting – and then call up those saved points on the satnav during a journey so they can safely travel from one to the next in any conditions. This satnav will do that job very well – But expect to spend a good few hours of frustration (hopefully at home before your trip!) trying to work out how to set-up your Garmin eTrex 10 !!!!!

    Its Simple to use and is very accurate. I use it for Woodland walks and for the Waypoint Navigation and Trip data. 2 AA Batteries last Ages and will be enough power to cover a whole days walking easily.
    very rugged and compact and light. A good basic waypoint navigation tool that can be used all over the UK mainly for me. Used for nearly a year on and off and has not let me down yet. If you want something like Google maps… this is not for you. But for a cheaper simple Waypoint Nav device. This is it.
