- GPS Training review on the Garmin eTrex 10 - the expert's view -
The Garmin eTrex 10 is the entry-level GPS unit from Garmin
If you are looking for a GPS unit to give you a Grid reference, track how far you have walked with average speed etc this is a great unit for you.
With it not having a colour screen you get stunning battery life with the Garmin eTrex 10 and with it running on AA batteries you can keep it going for many days with very little weight.
The eTrex 10 is an easy to use and affordable GPS with geocaching and basic route finding features.
The new Garmin eTrex 10 is a waterproof and durable GPS unit; resistant to dust, dirt, humidity and the weather. Its easy-to-use interface means you'll spend more time admiring the scenery and less time searching for information, and the 2.2 inch enhanced monochrome display is easy to read in any light so reduces the chances of making a false reading.
The included USB cable makes it easy to connect the eTrex 10 to your PC or Mac without the need for extra accessories, and with the free BaseCamp software you can manage and organise waypoints on your computer before transferring them easily to the GPS. The eTrex 10 can also accept GPX files allowing for paper-free geocaching - no more manually entering coordinates and scribbling down notes, just upload the file and start hunting for caches!
The high sensitivity EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver can locate and maintain your position even in wooded areas or around tall buildings or cliffs, and the ability to track both the GPS and GLONASS (from 2012) networks makes position 'lock on' up to 20% faster, with 24 more satellites available than with GPS-only handsets.
