Keep Your Fix
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, eTrex locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
The eTrex series is the first-ever consumer-grade receivers that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. When using GLONASS satellites, a system developed by the Russian Federation, the time it takes for the receiver to 'lock on' to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS.

Update 6/26/2016 Just completed a Norway Fjord Tour carrying my faithful eTrex 20 recording the traveling route while side-seeing Oslo, having ferry crossings and fjord cruises on Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord, riding on the Myrdal-to-Flam scenic train, enjoying the zigzag mountain roads like Eagles road and Troll road, and visiting the low-elevation Briksdal Glacier. After returning I reviewed my journey with the recorded gpx files on Google Map and Google Earth.
Update 8/12/2015 Returned from a Baltic Cruise visiting various cities/countries along the Baltic coast. With the country maps downloaded from the websites mentioned in the review, I was able to navigate the ports and returned to the ship safely and on time.
Update 3/8/2014 Just returned from a hiking trip in Patagonia, my Etrex 20 performed extremely well. I viewed my trails on Google Earth and Map using the GPX files I recorded while walking in the cities, sailing in the lakes, hiking on the mountains and even trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier. The maps I used are downloaded from the web links shown below.
Update 8/19/2013 I have extensively used my Etrex 20 during my recent trip to the Pacific Northwest visiting many national parks with excellent performance. Both GPS and GLONASS were turned on. With full view of sky, the accuracy is 7-9 ft. During the hikes in the Olympic NP rain forest with tree tops over head, its accuracy is 20 to 30 ft.
Etrex 20 is an excellent GPS unit with many features but requires a steep learning curve for a first time GPS user. These are my lessons learned:
1. Make sure to download Garmin's BaseCamp and update Etrex's software via BaseCamp before doing anything else. BaseCamp is a PC program complimentary to the Etrex.
BaseCamp is an excellent computer application for viewing maps, storing and organizing data, planning outdoor activities, and creating and sharing your adventures. With BaseCamp, you can:
* Import and view maps in 2-D or 3-D, including your TOPO U.S. maps and City Navigator® maps.
* Create, edit and organize routes, waypoints and more on your computer.
* Create and share Garmin Adventures.
* View playback of routes, tracks and adventures.
The manual and the intro videos for BaseCamp:
2. Free Garmin-compatible maps can be downloaded from
gpsfiledepot.com, (topo maps)
3. There is a 3000-tile limit for the maps installed on the unit. Since installing maps to the "Garmin" folder on the SD card using MapInstall takes a long, long time, here is my trick to just install once all the maps you want and you can get access to all your maps quickly using a PC.
Create a folder named "Extra Maps" inside the "Garmin" folder on the SD card, and move all extra maps you will need later into the "Extra Maps" folder. This will largely avoid exceeding the 3000 tile issues because Etrex only loads the maps in the "Garmin" folder but not the maps in the "Extra Maps" folder. You can then move maps between the two folders based on your needs.
4. These programs will come in handy: GPX Editor, GPSBabel and JaVaWa Device Manager in addition to BaseCamp.
1. Garmen BaseCamp - free software to communicate with the GPS.
2. Maine Topo - An excellent free topo map of Maine available from the GPSFileDepot. Other states also available.
3. Google Earth - An exceptional free program that works well with this GPS. You can mark locations or boundaries on this map and upload them to the GPS. You can also display hike tracks on Google Earth downloaded from the GPS. The attached photo shows the boundary for the Maine Forest and Logging Museum uploaded to the GPS and a hike around their trails downloaded to Google Earth. This is amazing free software you will want to use.
The GPS has a feature to compute and display area by walking around a plot. It works surprisingly well. This GPS has good battery life, perhaps 20 hours or so. Only difficulty so far is learning to manage files with Garmen BaseCamp, confusing but not a big problem. The GPS compact size is great for hiking and works well stored in my jacket pocket. Overall an exceptional GPS.
1. Before you even use it, let it warm up on a 45 degree angle about 3 feet off the ground or higher. When I stop my mountain bike to scout..I turn the GPS on and prop it up on my bike seat for about 90 seconds..I'm hunting in a thick WMA Swamp in Florida.
2. Go to Way Point manager..and click on your Way Point..after you click Go..it brings you to a little map that you can barely see
a. On the left of the GPS click that lower button...then click it once more..this takes you to the compass..
b.and that is all you need. once you start walking the compass needle will point you in the right direction and continually let you see about how far you are away. For hunting , I set my distances in yds.
c. I use it to mark trails that can't be seen on Google Earth and to find my game camera and deer stand. So far..so good.
