Garmin eTrex 30 for Walkers and Trekkers - What does it actually do and how does it do it?

The eTrex 30 is a hand held GPS device which may be used by walker/trekkers, drivers, cyclists and on board boats.

I am an avid walker and walk routes that I have either found in books or downloaded from the internet. However, I have found on many occasions that instructions and maps found in this way are not always accurate or may be a little vague. Nothing is worse during a walk than getting lost or simply not knowing where you are. I wanted a device that could assist me during my walks and to enable me to ensure my walk is more enjoyable. Additionally, I wanted to know exactly where I had been, how far I had walked and other statistical information. I also saw on walking web sites that you could download GPX files: I assumed these were walking routes that you could load onto the eTrex but wasn't really sure. Geocaching interested me also.

I looked at the Garmin web site and quite frankly it didn't really help me. Also, I couldn't find anything elsewhere on the internet that would give me a good overview of what the eTrex 30 did, and how it did it. I thought the eTrex was what I wanted but wasn't quite sure. However, I took a gamble and bought the eTrex 30 and I couldn't be happier!

This document provides a general overview of what the eTrex 30 actually does for walker/trekkers and how it does it.

The eTrex 30 at a glance:
1. Tracks and records your route - you can save this and download to your computer. It is saved as a GPX file.
2. You can view your walked route on a map. This is constantly updated as you are walking.
3.

The 2 star review is so wrong - the reviewer obviously did not check out first what he was actually buying.

The eTrex 30 is a very sophisticated piece of kit - incredibly quick to locate your position and very accurate (it can tell if you are on one side of a road or the other and the isosceles triangle icon on the screen not only shows your location but also the direction you are facing). The features and menu options are also very intuitive and the buttons and "toggle / joy-stick" are very easy to operate - you can do eveything with your thumb, even when wearing mits.
The features such as the "trip meter" are brilliant (even tells you how long to sunset) and loading routes to and from your computer is a doddle.It has a three dimensional compass that very few GPS have - which means it works even when you are standing still (this is the only difference from the slightly cheaper eTrex 20). The altimeter is also very accurate. Phone apps are no-way comparable to what this piece of kit can do (also, using your phone as a GPS will run the battery down very quickly).

Two AA batteries do last the 25 hours advertised - Iam getting three days walking out of them.

I bought it so that I could download 1:2500 maps of specific areas as I need them. Two problems with this: 1) It works out very expensive (e,g. Lake District = £100) and 2) as the 2* reviewer says the "base map" on "BirdsEye" is so poor that you can not accurately identify the area that you you are purchasing - which means that you can make expensive mistakes. This is a pity as the "purchase only what you need" feature is supposed to be a big selling point - I have been told that my email complaining about this has been passed on to the boffins at Garmin.

I bought an eTrex 30 after my venerable Garmin GPS 12XL was stolen and I needed a replacement. The eTrex 30 is a good, well designed machine and is pretty much ideal for its intended purpose which is mainly for walking and outdoor pursuits. I would also say that it is suitable for normal military use. It is a handy size, tough, waterproof, and has a great display which is readable in all pretty much all lighting conditions, even in bright sunlight. It is very accurate being able to use both GPS and GLONASS satellite systems. It finds satellites quickly and is ready to navigate within 30 seconds to a minute of being switched on. Battery life is good and the built-in software fit for purpose, although it takes a few hours of playing with it to become familiar. Regular Garmin software updates are easily installed using a PC with USB connection and the Garmin software obtainable from their web site.

There is a built-in compass although a lot of users seem to have had problems with it. As supplied, my unit did not calibrate properly and my attempts to recalibrate were met with a "fail" message. Even so, the compass still worked and was reasonably accurate when checked against my Francis Barker M73 prismatic compass (which does not lie). Recent software updates have eradicated the calibration failure although I have yet to test the durability of the compass over an extended period. In fact, I may never do so. Whilst it is nice to have a compass available on the GPS, the compass is not its main function and with a Francis Barker compass available (or any other decent compass) , why would I rely upon a battery-driven electronic device which may or may not be accurate? Any serious military user, walker or out-door type will always have a good compass with them.
