Choosing The Right eTrex for Your Lifestyle



Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and explore with a Garmin device. The eTrex handheld has been an admired tool for outdoor aficionados for many years and its reputation keeps growing stronger. For all outdoor enthusiasts looking into acquiring a new Garmin eTrex this summer, this is a quick guide on which eTrex is the right choice for your outdoor hobbies and adventures.

Novice Adventurers

The eTrex 10 is our beginner model of our eTrex series and it retains the core functionalities like its rugged construction, affordable price tag of $109, and 25-hour battery life that has made the eTrex the most dependable GPS device out there. The eTrex 10 features the Garmin worldwide basemap, paperless geocaching, and can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously, where the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using GPS alone. This GPS unit is a perfect instrument for you novice adventurers or for those of you that are new to GPS navigation.

Amateur Adventurers

Next is the eTrex 20x with an easy to use interface, paperless geocaching, expanded memory for mapping, and a color display. The new eTrex 20x had enhanced screen resolution and more memory so you can hold more maps. With an array of compatible mounts, eTrex 20x is designed for use on ATVs, bicycles, boats, or in your car. This GPS device is a great tool for your amateur adventurers or for those who are looking to upgrade their Garmin GPS Handheld and hold maps over time.

Advanced Adventurers

On the top of the list is the ever-popular eTrex 30x, which has all the features of the 10 and 20x, but has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass to show you're heading the right direction without holding it level. Another feature added to the mix is a barometric altimeter, which can track changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. Plus, eTrex 30x lets you share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible devices.

We encourage everyone to be more active outside. Now get out there and take charge of your next adventure with a Garmin handheld GPS and remember to share your outdoor stories and photos with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram by using hashtag #HaveNoLimits.
