Garmin eTrex H review

 

The Garmin eTrex H is Garmin's newest entry-level handheld GPS, a worthy successor to the basic yellow Garmin eTrex. A great first GPS for the budget-minded geocacher or hiker, this classic has been updated with a high-sensitivity chipset for superior...

An expensive compass

 

Although the eTrex H might suit those hikers who want nothing except the bare minimum, most will find it largely unusable. Inadequate functionality and no base map makes the unit extremely hard to use for anyone except the most experienced hikers, and...

Simple to use, IPX-7 casing, configurable routes and waypoints

No base map or detailed maps, monochrome LCD, serial PC connection, inadequate control of navigation

Great bare bones GPS!

 

I use this GPS daily, for geocaching. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the more expensive models have, but then again, it's not expensive! The accuracy is right there with the expensive models, they all get you to the same place! It's...

CHEAP! ACCURATE! NICE LOOKING! EASY TO USE

Limited memory, only holds 1000 waypoints, blah screen, but hey, it's cheap

Product Specifications

Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts on a budget, eTrex H comes with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that locks onto satellite signals quickly and maintains accuracy - even in the toughest conditions. And just like the popular eTrex, this little yellow wonder combines an intuitive interface and a rugged exterior into a lightweight handheld that fits in the palm of your hand. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, eTrex H locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear - whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on eTrex H to help you find your way when you need it the most. You can operate your eTrex H with just one hand using five buttons, which are located on either side of eTrex H within easy reach of your fingers. Thanks to its bright yellow case, eTrex H is easy to find in your boat or backpack. And, eTrex H is IPX7 waterproof, so it can take an accidental splash or dunk in the water and still continue to perform. With eTrex H, your adventure can last and last - up to 17 hours on just 2 AA batteries. While you roam, you can store up to 500 waypoints in memory for easy retrieval. Just enter the point you want to go to, and eTrex H points you to your destination (no street or terrain maps). To get home, use Garmin's exclusive TrackBack feature to reverse your track log and help you navigate back to your starting point.
