The aquisition of satellites is quite fast. From a cold start out of the box, the Etrex 20 found my location in about 30 seconds. Once the unit has found it's location, subsequent aquisition times (given that one hasn't traveled several hundred miles since last turning it on) is almost immediate.
Garmin tech on the phone helped me put my identification on the start up screen.
The unit allows for one to choose the order that screens come up... I liked the Legend H's progression of boot up screen into satellite screen into map screen...I have set my unit to power up on the satellite screen, and then when I am satisfied with the satellites that have been found, pressing the back button puts me into the map screen. Pushing back again gets me into the menu screen.
The basemap is worldwide in scope for major highways (the Legend covered North and South America as far as major highways are concerned. The rest of the world consisted of primitive outlines of countries, no highways, only capital cities), and the coverage of towns and cities around the world is impressive. I looked for the little city of Turfan in the Gobi Desert of northwest China on the old silk route and found it!Read more ›
I really like this GPS, it has a LOT of features and can do many different things. I've used it for hiking and biking so far and is worth the cost just for that! The basecamp program is ok, you can add maps, download maps, plan routes, try out the 3d satellite program, really cool!!! But it come with what I would say is no real map, so don't be surprised when you turn it on and go, what the @&*#. You can get maps for free from some really good sites, almost every map except for city map so far. But I got topo, regional, county, quite a few trail maps, hiking map etc, you just gotta look for them. Garmin maps are probably top of the line, but cost atleast an arm and a foot. ha ha. I have planned routes, waymarked hiking and biking paths, even used the coordinates setting. Points of interests are cool to. I still exploring this as there really is a lot, and that is great, didn't get bored with it yet! I use the map feature when biking, it's cool, shows you where your at and where your going, you can waymark cool things along the way like coverd bridges or water features or whatever! I did a lot of research before buying this unit, and I got just what I was looking for and a whole lot more and the price is reasonable, since I use it a lot. I'm a gadget person and usually they don't keep me too interested for too long, this thing is excellent!!Highly recommend it for hiking and biking, as I myself really don't care about the speed feature others have mentioned, more about where I'm going and what I mark along the way.
Bottom line: Money well spent, wide variety of uses, and fun to use!!
Have had this unit less than a week and wrote a review that turned out to be 3x this long. Even to provide only some short and sweet of it, it's still long! But potential buyers need to know a few things before pulling the trigger! This review might seem to bleed over to other areas not specific to the unit itself, but are essential to getting the most out of it. I have not addressed many issues that can be resolved with the owner's manual or a search engine.
I suggest that before saying yea or nay on the Etrex 20, download the BaseCamp software (includes MapInstaller) plus at least 3 topo maps (free) from GPSFileDepot to your PC (or Mac) and experiment with the setup. I used the maps on a netbook in the woods, Grand Canyon, Zion and other places while cross referencing to Microsoft Streets & Trips with its hockey puck GPS for months before warming to the notion of the Etrex 20. Even lacking another GPS, you can still use the maps much the same way as you would a paper map. You can print them, too.
If you like what you see after using BaseCamp on your computer, then learn how to install maps directly to a microSD card (or a plain SD for now) inserted into a computer by renaming the gmapsupp.img on the card to a name that reflects the one installed there. The new map you download will be named the Garmin default map name "gmapsupp.img". If you don't rename it, the map you download will overwrite the map you should have renamed! This has to be done each time a new map is downloaded. You don't have to rename the same map in BaseCamp. The BaseCamp filename will remain as it was downloaded. You can do all this before buying the GPS.
