No battery, no S/D card, no way to carry fasten to equipment, just as well not had a map. No topo map, not much of anything, but wasted money in a drawer with other outdated phones and junk.

I've owned two other Garmin products for l5 years. They are excellent pieces of equipment. This is why I'm so disappointed in the 30X.


  • Small
  • Water tight


  • All in the above summary.

Look what maps are offered and cost. Very disappointed in World Map. Would have been nice to zoom in to see where you're on a trail at any time. Maybe I was expecting too much for 300 bucks.


Thanks for the review, Flyod. What do you mean by no battery? Do you have to purchase topo map separately, or is this just recording your hike?
