Awesome GPS

I have used a GPS since 2004 and have found it to invaluable for my backpack archery elk hunting trips in the Colorado. My only complaint with my original unit was that it was not real good at picking up satellites when I was in heavy cover. I started looking at new units and investigated all the major brands and all I can say is that the Garmin eTrex 30 is awesome. It's still small as my old unit is but it is incredibly fast and with the map over-lay I have been able to plot out my elk hunting area so well that I can't wait to head to camp on Sept 16. Anyone that doesn't use a GPS elk hunting is nuts as it just makes you a better hunter.

Great GPS!

After reading numerous reviews, I decided to upgrade my GPS and bought the eTrex 30 for hunting in the Adirondack mountains. With the need to quickly and consistently set out a watch line and drop drivers off in the right spots every time, this unit gets me within 20 feet of my intended target consistently. Battery life is awesome and the daytime display is better than any GPS I have owned to date. Garmin did a great job of retaining the durability of the original eTrex and adding new features that drastically increase efficiency and ease of use in the field.

New Etrex works great in dense cover.

After getting turned around while scouting for Western Oregon Elk and my old 2000 model etrex wasn't receiving signals, I decided to update my GPS unit. I was happy with the Etrex, I just wanted more sensitivity. I bought the newest Etrex 30 and quickly discovered how much has changed in 12 years. I was able to test it out on a Cascade Elk hunt and never lost contact with satellites once, even in old growth timber. I considered the Oregon series, but didn't like the larger size or the reduced battery life. I'm glad I made the switch.

Good unit BUT

I guess this is a nice unit, sharp screen, many features but as is the case with Garmin products there are no instructions. The enclosed fast start guide is primitive and does not tell you much more than what the buttons are. Downloaded the full operators manual and there is more info in this but it is presented in a jumbled up and rudimentary way. What good is a GPS if the features are a secret?
I purchased a third party instructional DVD and realized all the potential features this unit has.
Garmin should provide a real manual, but until they do I cannot recommend this unit or any other from Garmin.
