Garmin eTrex 10 review

 

The Garmin eTrex 10 is Garmin's new entry-level unit in the recently updated eTrex series. It offers paperless geocaching, GPS+GLONASS and advanced track navigation, but has a monochrome screen, limited memory and cannot accept detailed maps (although...

Full paperless geocaching support ; GPS + GLONASS support ; Excellent battery life ; Uses mini-USB cable (included) rather than eTrex H’s serial connection ; Advanced track navigation

Monochrome screen ; Cannot display maps ; Limited memory

Highly recommended. The eTrex 10 is the best starter GPS for geocachers on the market. You can find this model for just over $110 and that gets you the full set of paperless geocaching features. This combined with the fact that it offers GPS + GLONASS...

Great GPS for a beginner

 

We have only used our GPS a few times but it was easy to follow the directions. We used the way point feature and were able to follow it back to our vehicle.

Good, but hard to figure out

 

It took me several days and contacting Garmin to figure out how to download caches to this GPS. Once we got it figured out, it works nicely.

Good basic hiking GPS

 

I got this model since it was newer than the eTrex Venture HC I already had. This model has a monochrome display whereas the Venture has a color display. I did not think I would have missed the color as much as I did. The monochrome is perfectly...
