eTrex 30

rated 4 of 5 stars Don't go in to the mountains without it. I use my Garmin eTrex 30 from hiking/backpacking to 4-wheeling and every other time I head up to the mountains. I received this as a gift and have been using it for almost a year now. There are a lot of great features that this device has from basic GPS and compass, trip computer, waypoints to area calculations, clocks/alarms, proximity alarms, sight 'N go, you name it, it seems to have all the bells and whistles. I use the trip computer every time I… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars I took this guy out for our first field test on the Buffalo River a few weeks ago. Really great watch for the avid outdoors man. The trackback feature came in handy several times on that rocky terrain. The storm alarm was a lifesaver too. The river rose 5 feet during the night! The Garmin Fenix is the product for you if you are heading outdoors. If you like to bike, hike, run, fly, swim, float, or fish then this little package has a lot to offer. It has multiple profile settings that you can choose… Full review

eTrex 30

rated 3 of 5 stars Reliable route finding GPS with great graphics, however its weight and limited battery life make it better for geocaching than backpacking. This was given to me as a gift and I was very excited since I'm a big fan of Garmin's Zumo motorcycle GPS. In spite of some great features, I'm glad I didn't spend $300 USD on it. I've found the accuracy to be good in the backcountry, and the track back feature works flawlessly. I also like the setting that automatically inserts way points into your route… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars The Garmin fenix GPS watch is almost in a category all it's own (the Suunto Ambit series is the only other real competition from what I could find). You can't compare this to any of the typical fitness GPS watches as this does SOOOO much more. This watch is a land-navigator's dream. I think it's important to start by clarifying that I'm reviewing the fenix as a tool for a specific job. Example: I noted in my "Cons" that the fenix needs an external antenna when under tree cover. In other words, if… Full review

Forerunner 301

rated 5 of 5 stars I've used and abused this thing for almost a decade, mainly for cycling. I strap it to my top tube and off I go. I love the ability to upload the ride onto the Garmin Training Center application and gather my ride metrics (speed, average speed, climbing and descent data) and overlay it on a map. This has been one of my favorite training aids. I used to wear the heart monitor but stopped after a while because I was having trouble getting a reliable signal. Plus the chest strap was annoying so I didn't… Full review
