Only Garmin could make the eTrex better. The new eTrex 10 retains the core functionality, rugged construction, affordability and long battery life that made eTrex the most dependable GPS device available. We improved the user interface and added a worldwide basemap, paperless geocaching and added support for spine mounting accessories. You'll recognize the name. You'll recognize the quality. But the eTrex 10 is an entirely new device - a device that only Garmin could offer.
eTrex 10 has an enhanced 2.2" monochrome display that's easy to read in any lighting situation. Both durable and waterproof, eTrex 10 is built to withstand the elements. Its easy to use interface means you'll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. eTrex 10 features the legendary toughness that's built to withstand the elements be it dust, dirt, humidity or water, none of which are a match for this storied navigator.
eTrex 10 supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. Visit OpenCaching.com to start your geocaching adventure. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. eTrex 10 stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs. Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches.
With its high sensitivity, WAAS enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, eTrex 10 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on eTrex 10 t o help you find your way when you need it the most.
The new eTrex series is the first ever consumer grade receivers that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. GLONASS is a system developed by the Russian Federation that will be fully operational in 2012. When using GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to "lock on" to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS. And when using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using GPS alone.
