5.0 out of 5 stars Garmin eTrex Venture HC, 11 Feb 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin eTrex Venture HC Handheld GPS Navigator (Electronics)
I needed a solid, accurate and inexpensive GPS for geocaching so, after some pretty comprehensive research I eventually decided on the Garmin eTrex Venture HC. Nothing at this price can compete for the number of features and easy of use, especially as many more expensive units don't have a colour screen or are as accurate. All readings to date have been within 10 feet or less plus I've never lost a signal yet, even indoors!

I was a complete beginner when it arrived but within minutes I was quite comfortable with the features and system navigation. My only (minor) gripe here is that the manual and quick setup guides aren't as clear as they could be. Don't be put off, just start using the device and you'll soon work it all out.

It's small size is very handy - about the same size a compact digital camera - and build quality is very robust. The supplied software is easy to use making uploading routes and waypoints simple. PC only though, so I have to use my wife's laptop instead of my Mac PowerBook or just manually input any information I might need.

All-in-all extremely impressed and I would recommend this unit to anyone.
