Just super, it's beautifully made, I'm very happy with it.

Some pros: 1. Confident and accurate position detection. Even in a wet forest in a jacket pocket. 2. Water protection (more than once he swam after me on a rope, falling out of the boat). 3. Black and white screen, everything is always visible, without pressing the buttons, without backlight. 4. Long work from 2 batteries (several days without turning off). 5. Reliable - I have been using it for many years, without failures. 6. Convenient connection with a computer through a simple USB cord, vi

I didn't expect the quality to be so high.

If you are a mushroom picker, fisherman or hunter, then eTrex10 is what you need. Even without knowing the terrain, you can always return to the starting point. Pros: eTrex10 is not a toy, but a very serious device. It catches satellites very well, long battery life, accurately records tracks and points, there is a trip computer. The compass shows the direction to a given point. There are different settings. Some cons: About the joystick. Buy a branded case and the problems will go away. There…

Matches the description completely, very satisfied.

Reliable model with a modern, highly sensitive GPS signal receiver. With its pros: - The quality of reception is an order of magnitude higher than that of previous models. Takes even sometimes in a room away from windows. And in the forest - he always takes it, even when under clothes (GPS + GLONASS setting). Thanks to the efforts of Alexei Grachev, now you can upload the necessary cards to it (see discussions ? modelid=7800733&hid=294661) - Easy to exchange withcomputer via USB port. It is…

I'm very happy with the product, it's very satisfying.

It is possible to upload cards. But you need to download them on yourcomputer, cut them. There are various websites for this. for example. But there will be a problem with the display of roads if you choose the wrong map type. Hong Kong area here . Htm - there is a problem with the texture of the forest, and you need to cut off the desired quarter in mapedit to fit into the device. It is necessary to put down the north pole - magnetic (from the settings). Otherwise, the azimuths go with…

  • Price (was) - 6, 10 years ago . Durability and reliability. It's been 10 years - no breakage. But the screen still sweats if it floats in the water for a long time. 36 hours of operation on conventional batteries, which I think is beyond praise. Without frequent use of backlight, with glonas, in conditions of poor visibility of satellites. Convenient minimalistic electronic compass: set the point "azimuth 300, 2500 meters" and move to it along the windbreak. As well as showing time with speed, sunset, average speed. He knows how, and he knows how to do it well. Maps can be loaded. Ran a large number of competitions and did many hikes with him, using maps. But it's not easy!
  • Price. Now for the money I would not take it. The black-and-white screen is not very convenient for navigating through the maps, which can still be uploaded to it. Just some eternal bugs with rendering - sometimes roads, sometimes forests, roads become visible only when approaching, but then they occupy half the screen. Or the forest is painted over with the texture of "Christmas trees" that block the paths . The device was not sharpened for this, of course. And in general, with some effort, you can adjust the type of rendering for it. But I'm still lazy. For orientation when moving on foot, in addition to a paper map and compass, it will do. Enough for hiking. For running, orienteering competitions, MMB type, etc. - it’s not so convenient anymore, I have to spend a lot of time roaming around the map with a small screen, I practically don’t use it for navigation, I only correct some distant “shots” to a clear and unambiguous reference point in azimuth through green light, but I shoot movement statistics. The joystick touches on the go - it's better to switch to the "travel computer" menu - the joystick is not active there. The rubber on the joystick became sticky to the touch (after 5 years). The screen sweated a couple of times when the device was under water for a long time.

Great device for little money. You can install (i. E. replace the regular one, keeping the name) one . img map up to 4-5 MB in size. This is an average region or a quarter of Hong Kong - it depends on the detail. At the same time, there will be less memory for recording tracks! You can download ready-made maps or cut them yourself in the GPSMapEdit program. True, such cards are of little use, since the screen is black and white and of low resolution. Waypoints are conveniently created and…

  • Convenient menu and controls. Economical. Quickly catches satellites, reacts to course deviations after a few steps. Gives out a lot of useful information. Tolerable price (no competitors). It is convenient to work through the USB port - it is visible as an external drive.
  • Hangs for 3-5 seconds. when marking waypoints. A small amount of memory is the company's policy . - for these minuses I lower the score by a point. The rest is not critical. All the disadvantages inherent in a black and white LCD display of small size and resolution. For operational work, you always need a computer at hand, otherwise a very time-consuming process is obtained. It’s convenient to hold in your hands, you can hang it around your neck, but it’s problematic to fix it somewhere (bicycle, moto-car), until you figured out how.

Nothing ordinary, a normal product.

A cheap device of a good brand. Weakly takes satellites. In the forest, the connection is lost; it is necessary to reboot if it is not tuned under the trees, it starts to show correctly in the forest there are no failures. A person who understands the cell phone can understand the menu completely in an hour. weak connection, like Sony radio tape recorders, is complete compared to the pioneer (there is no b, a very weak tuner) and Nokian winter tires do not row in snowdrifts at all.

  • Holds a charge for a long time. It shows the exact time. There is a comp. Although the reviews say that it is not, I specifically checked 3 km to the car in the forest. to. there are no real compeors.
  • 1The most important thing is a weak connection in the forest, it crashes and needs to be rebooted. 2 It’s inconvenient to fill points with a joystick. 3 At -15 it starts to fail, the processor is to blame. The screen is fine. 4 It was difficult to connect to the computer only through the forums.

Reliable GPS for Outdoor Adventures

The eTrex 10 is a lifesaver for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. The device is durable and can withstand harsh weather situations, thus making it perfect for any adventure. The high-resolution screen and user-friendly interface make it easy to navigate through the interface. The battery life is impressive, lasting long enough to cover any outdoor trail. The only downside is the device lacks Wi-Fi capabilities, meaning that it doesn't download software updates. Overall, the eTrex 10 is a reliable

  • Reliable and accurate navigation tool for outdoor activities.
  • Screen size is small and may be difficult to read in certain lighting conditions.

Employed Experts: First, location detection that can be trusted to be precise. Even in a damp wilderness, a jacket pocket is safe. Second, safety in the water (he swam after me on the rope when we capsized). Third, the screen is always legible in black and white; there is no need to click any buttons or rely on any sort of lighting. 4.operate for many days on just two batteries. 5. Dependable; it has served me well for a long time. Connect to a computer with ease using a standard USB cable that

Im amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

Garmin has a monopoly on the market of travel navigators, if you don't download large maps, then there is no alternative. Pros below: Worked 30 hours on old batteries. The track is accurately displayed on the computer in the "Google Earth" program, it does not move off the sidewalk anywhere. The compass starts to work at the lowest speed, while the navigator must be kept straight on the course. Shows the direction and distance to the waypoint, with an accuracy of 3 m, as stated. In a dense…

The best I ever used, recommend it to everybody.

absolutely useless gadget in the city but the leader in the forest! I tried a lot to adapt phones with a navigator inside to the forest, but as practice has shown, it’s all children’s toys, fuss, a waste of time and money, and I couldn’t understand how to properly use the compass that is in this box . probably people who praise an incomprehensible compass in this navigator have no idea what a compass is and what it is for and saw it only in the picture, explaining the compass is such a thing…

  • waterproof! reliable! lasts longer than anyone else runs on batteries! glass glass and not plastic! frost-resistant and all-weather! glonas! although the joystick sticks out, it’s still a plus, the visibility of the screen at any time of the day, that is, it does not glare and does not go blind,
  • when using the function, marking a waypoint, it hangs to see a weak processor, but it’s not critical and you can put up with it . there’s no way to call and send SMS, it doesn’t show traffic jams, there’s no way to access the Internet,

Nice product, happy with my purchase and may buy again.

Before that, I used etrexH for a couple of years, I wouldn’t say that etrex10 catches better, in my opinion it’s the same. But you have to get used to the menu. And my device sometimes hangs for 5-10 seconds, it only responds to the shutdown button. I talked with another user of the same navigator, he does not have such a drawback. With its pros. Strong reception, GLONASS support, water resistance, finally solved the issue with the edging elastic on the etrex Cons: Braked, freezes for 5-10…

Simple. All you need to eat. Monochrome. Maps load great. I uploaded a very detailed map of the Hong Kong Territory there. The Internet has everything you need. Economical. Two batteries lasted two days. With initial simplicity, it is quite flexible in settings. You just need to dig. Pros below: Loaded the map about six meters. We went down the Amur River 170 km below Hong Kong, but on the way back there was not enough memory to record the track and points. Says no memory. It's rather…

Good value for money, I recommend.

I took it as a track writer for urban photo tourism, so that later I could link pictures by time. The navigator and the camera coped with 4 - it is inconvenient to find out and set the time, with fast bus traffic, an error of one or three street widths. I advise you to set the screen to minimum contrast, so that you can only control and check the mode of operation - the batteries last much longer. The disadvantage described on the Internet that an unrecorded track flies when changing…

  • The black-and-white screen is visible in any light, large batteries, economy, price.
  • The joystick sticks out - I'm afraid to break it with hard objects in the bag. Accessory marketing? Narrow testing? There is no clock with seconds to set the camera clock on them and then programmatically link pictures. I put it on a smartphone with NTP, and if in the wilderness? Bought it for this! Very little memory. Marketing older models? Could give maps of cities (one by one, with reloading) at the price of Google Maps or 2GIS, that is, for free.

A terrible purchase, I sympathize with everyone who bought it.

Inadequate price misleading people about the functionality of this model is already a weighty reason to burn in hell for this Garmin desk. The poor fellows buy these soap dishes for 10k and then immediately put them on ebay. The best-selling model on ebay, garbage, electrical error.

Great value for money, one of the best offers.

Great entry level navigator. At first I wanted to take the previous model - Garmin Etrex H, then I did not find it in stores and took this one. Didn't regret it at all. It has a number of significant advantages over the previous model. I took for hunting and hiking for mushrooms. Through a snowy forest in a snowfall, it leads perfectly to the designated point. The device is not afraid of rain, snow or frost.

  • Compared to previous Garmin Etrex H - Built-in base map of the world - Full 2022 language support - The name of the waypoint can be written in several words (in the previous model there were only 6 characters) - In addition to the name, an even longer comment can be added to each point. - Convenient joystick control. - Collaboration of GPS and Glonass - the number of found satellites has become larger, work to determine coordinates is more accurate and faster - Number of waypoints and routes doubled - PC connection cable included - Possibility to upload cache descriptions with coordinates to the device for Geocaching
  • - No belt clip - Poor instructions, but everything is intuitive

Everything is fine, there are only minor drawbacks.

I downloaded basecamp, filled in the points from the backup of the old etrex without any problems. Rumor has it that by removing the overview map of the world, you can somehow fill in a more or less detailed map of 2022. But I have not found time to study this topic yet. Has pros: Looks and feels like its predecessor, which worked for me for about 10 years. The same hard case, rubber all around, sealed connector. It seems that everything that should be in such a device is there. In short, it…
