Garmin Etrex 10 Gps Navigator Worldwide

The Garmin Etrex 10 Gps Navigator is the most price-point option in our review, and is our Top Pick for an entry-level unit for the geocaching crowd. But despite its price, we could not name it our Best Buy option, because it also severely lacks the GPS of even the next model up in the affordable eTrex line.

At the present time This baseline unit impressed us with its speed and accuracy, making it a reliable option for tracking and waypoint marking. The size, durability, and battery life of the eTrex 10 also make it a great option to use in nasty weather. But its absence of a useable basemap and lack of internal memory doesn’t make it very useful for navigation, particularly on anything longer than a day-trip.

In a moment The eTrex 10 is about as simple as it gets, and even Garmin considers it to be a “non-mapping GPS unit.” While its preloaded basemap may appear blank — with the exception of major cities and borders — it does have the ability to mark waypoints and save tracks, which then allows you to plan and save routes later through Garmin BaseCamp. It is the most basic GPS unit in the eTrex lineup: the simple design features a monochromatic screen, only 6MB of internal memory, and does not include a microSD slot for any additional memory.

FAQ:

Q: Is it possible to add more detailed maps to this device by purchasing them from Garmin?

A: In case you need to confirm.

Q: Can I use my Launch Point as a waypoint and use that to return to it as a kayaker?

A: Without a doubt. In my opinion, you should make sure to keep the unit in a dry bag, but it should get you to within 25 feet of the launch site and point you in the right direction.

Q: Will it be useful in walking outside, I just want to know if it will help me not get lost in the woods, so as to go the right way on the trail, is it okay to use ?

A: Getting lost won’t be prevented, but it will help you to stay on track.

Q: Could I enter a longitude and a ?

A: If I live in Venezuela, does this team work for my country? I need UTM coordinates as well as latitude and longitude. A computer generates UTM coordinates and a lat / log and displays it?
