Worth noting this is NOT the eTrex H model that is the IMPORTANT high sensitivity model. I would not buy the one being offered as an extra £20 is worth it IMHO

It can be bought here for £60.77

Tesco original price of £79.98 for this offer is not reasonable as are all of their so called half price Garmin deals.

Ah didn't realise it wasnt the H model BUT I find very little real extra accuracy using the high sensitivity mode, usually only about 1 metre better.

The high sensitivity model is streets ahead of this model when it comes to trees, woods or even tall buildings. The unit on offer here will just fail to pick up satellite and leave you with no position at all.

Anyone that wants to connect this up to their PC will require this

Make sure it is suitable for this model before buying ( it think is though)

I used a basic ETrex way back in the early 2000s, it was usually a bit slow to start and had to be kept still to get the initial lock up but once locked it never gave me any trouble.

What a foolish statement. Having owned both the old model and the new H, the difference for the average user is minimal. This is a fantastic piece of kit for the money. I use my e-trek in the scottish mountains in all sorts of weather and both are superb. Anyone who can get lost near high buildings should not be allowed out in the first place.

My golf's been terrible lately so might buy one of these to help me find my way round the course. Good deal - heat added. :)
#11
I used to own this a few years back - great little machine and I never had any issues with it. Even if you have one already, at this price it would be a great backup in case your main one goes wrong.

Well you go against the grain on your thoughts on backpacking forums I frequent and even [url]www.pocketgpsworld.com[/url] The high buildings was nothing more than that info I gleaned elsewhere, but I understand how it might receive a reply of your nature.

As an owner of both what would be the differences, for I was certainly of the opinion that the H sorted out problems that were experienced in wooded, forested areas. It appeared to me as common knowledge but you say differently.


I believe this is Garmin's own info


Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts on a budget, eTrex H comes with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that locks onto satellite signals quickly and maintains accuracy even in the toughest conditions. And just like the popular eTrex, this little yellow wonder combines an intuitive interface and a rugged exterior into a lightweight handheld that fits in the palm of your hand. Enjoy Clear Reception With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, eTrex H locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear whether youre in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on eTrex H to help you find your way when you need it the most. Built for Adventure You can operate your eTrex H with just one hand using five buttons, which are located on either side of eTrex H within easy reach of your fingers. Thanks to its bright yellow case, eTrex H is easy to find in your boat or backpack. And, eTrex H is IPX7 waterproof, so it can take an accidental splash or dunk in the water and still continue to perform. Find It and Go With eTrex H, your adventure can last and last up to 17 hours on just 2 AA batteries. While you roam, you can store up to 500 waypoints in memory for easy retrieval. Just enter the point you want to go to, and eTrex H points you to your destination (no street or terrain maps). To get home, use Garmin's exclusive TrackBack® feature to reverse your track log and help you navigate back to your starting point. eTrex H: Lock onto the great outdoors.

So the old one with its 22 hours has a better battery life than the new!

Sounds like they've upgraded the GPS chip set from a basic 16 or 20 channel to a newer one.

Yes, I believe that the newer model is WASS/EGNOS enabled. [I'm not 100% sure if the UK takes full advantage of this though] Of course the proof of the pudding is in the eating. It will be interesting to see if we get feedback from another owner of both as a poster here claims he has noticed very little difference. As I have said, that is certainly not the impression I have got researching
