eTrex 10

rated 3.5 of 5 stars If you're a beginner, you'll find the quick startup and owner's manuals woefully inadequate. I had to call Garmin twice just to find out how to get the page that shows me how far I've hiked. I've used a Garmin GPS 60 for years, so I'm not a beginner. When my GPS 60 died, I couldn't find a simple GPS that would tell me how far and how fast I've hiked. The GPSes were expensive and extremely complex. FINALLY, the eTrex 10 showed up—just what I'd been waiting for! However, the instructions (quick… Full review

eTrex 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact, lightweight, and reliable handheld GPS receiver. Includes an electronic compass and barometer. Lacks a touch screen, but touch screens are ineffective in bad weather. The Garmin eTrex 30 is a battery-powered handheld GPS unit. It has been around for a long time, and at first sight it looks old-fashioned. Its display screen is small and is not touch-sensitive: you control the unit using buttons on the sides and a joystick on the front. Having said this, I’m not sure that a touch screen… Full review

GPSMap 64s

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid successor of time-proven GPSMap series, made for extreme conditions. But the number of improvements over GPSMap 62s leaves much to be desired. The button-operated Garmin handhelds are still not for everyone. Background I’ve been an active user of Garmin GPS handhelds since 2002. The first one was eTrex Vista—old, monochrome and equipped with 24 MB of memory for maps. It had really weak receiver with tendency for losing satellite signal in ALL less than perfect conditions (inside the pocket,… Full review

eTrex 30

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I am only weighing in on eTrex as to use of it without buying the expensive Garmin map subscriptions. It has worked fine as it was able to synch with Google Earth when the data is downloaded to my laptop. However, Garmin basecamp, which is the program to download from your device to a computer, will no longer work with Google Earth. The support team at Garmin tells me that I must use Garmin maps. I bought the device not wanting the map subscription and because it worked with Google Earth. Now it… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent weather instrument for all users of wireless-capable Garmin units. I've been using this sensor since its appearance in 2012 with my Garmin GPSMap 62s and now I continue using it with GPSMap 64s (see my review). I remember that in 2012 it was like a dream come true—wireless temperature sensor with log recording and making the graphs in Garmin Basecamp on PC! My temperature-equipped bike computer was very nice, but ability to record the data to track and review it later was amazing. Here… Full review
