Garmin eTrex 10 and eTrex 30 Review

Posted on: 31 Oct, 2011

Recently, Garmin announced the redesigned and upgraded eTrex handheld GPS device – evolving from one of the world’s most reliable and popular handhelds, with millions sold. This entry level option has been given enhanced ergonomics, an improved interface, paperless geocaching and in certain models, a 65k color screen with expanded mapping capabilities. These new additions - along with up to 25 hours of battery life - make the new eTrex more versatile and user-friendly, while maintaining its storied toughness and durability. The eTrex was announced in preparation for the Teva Mountain Games in Vail, CO, where it will be prominently displayed at the Garmin booth June 3-5.

“The eTrex has been a staple within our handheld GPS lineup for over 10 years and has been a favorite  among hikers, hunters and geocachers who want the basics; simple, compact, lightweight and accurate,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Using our industry leading experience and innovative technology, we designed the new eTrex to stand up against whatever Mother Nature throws at it.”  For purchasing eTrex 10 in Malaysia, please click here for more information.
