A Buyer's Guide to Garmin ETrex GPS Units

Buying a GPS unit can be confusing when you are unaware of the features and functions offered. This buyer's guide summarizes the differences within the Garmin eTrex series to facilitate the purchasing process so you can start your outdoor adventure.

First, when buying a GPS unit, it is important to understand the possible features to note. Starting in 2003, the government allowed GPS units for consumer purchase to be WAAS-enabled (Wide Area Augmentation System). This indicates that many GPS units now have the capability of being so highly sensitive and accurate that their positioning has only a three-meter deviation. GPS units use little dots called waypoints to plot and store locations and coordinates of the user's choice. The user can then connect the dots, so to speak, to form a route, or a line that shows the path of travel between waypoints. In this way, the user can navigate from point to point with the help of waypoints and routes. GPS units utilize over 20 satellites orbiting the earth to pinpoint locations. As the user progresses down a route, the GPS unit will display the user's progress through the use of these satellites.

Most GPS units come loaded with a U.S. basemap, which shows major roads and bodies of water in the United States, allowing the user to plot his or her waypoints and routes with this basemap as a background. Waypoints and routes can also be transferred to a PC through the USB or serial port.

The eTrex series has four basic models: the eTrex, the Venture, the Legend, and the Vista. The basic eTrex model is the only model that possesses no basemap, but it has 500 waypoints and 1 route, all at an affordable price (around $100). Weighing in at 5.3 ounces, this lightweight model also has a battery life of 22 hours and a position accuracy of 15 meters. The next model upgrade is the Legend (around $150), which has a basemap and supports additional software such as topographical maps and road maps on its 8MB memory. The Legend is WAAS-enabled, meaning it has a position accuracy of 3 meters or less. It also has 1,000 waypoints and 20 routes. The Vista model ($200), has improved resolution, is WAAS-enabled, and includes a compass and altimeter. In addition, it has 24MB of memory, supports additional software, and has 1,000 waypoints and 20 routes.

Offering an upgrade to each of these basic models, Garmin then designed the Venture Cx, Legend Cx, and Vista Cx, all which have color screens and replaceable microSD memory cards for expandable memory. The Venture Cx ($230) has an audible alarm signaling destination arrival, anchor drag, time, off-course, and proximity waypoint. It supports additional software, has 500 waypoints and 50 routes, and has a battery life of 32 hours. The Legend Cx ($270) comes with a 64MB microSD card, supports additional software, and has 50 routes and 500 waypoints. In addition, it has an audible alarm and a battery life of 36 hours. The package comes with a PC/USB interface cable and MapSource Trip and Waypoint Manager software. Finally, the most sophisticated of these eTrex models, the Vista Cx ($300) has a 64MB microSD card, 500 waypoints and 50 routes, a compass and altimeter, an audible alarm, and a battery life of 32 hours. Futhermore, it supports additional software and comes with MapSource Trip and Waypoint Manager and a PC/USB interface cable.

The negative about the eTrex series is that they have patch antennae instead of the more sophisticated quad helix antennae of the 60 and 76 series models. The patch antennae are slower to acquire satellites on overcast days and may not get reception in dense, jungle-like foliage or in canyons. Furthermore, Garmin units can only utilize MapSource software maps. While waypoints and routes can be transferred from National Geographic or DeLorme software on a PC to the GPS, the actual map itself will not transfer. However, the eTrex units are accurate, affordable, and easy to use, and are a great navigational tool to complement the use of maps and compasses. See your local REI, Bass Pro Shop, Cabela's, or Academy to pick up a Garmin eTrex for your next adventure!
