Weighing in at around 160 grams, the unit measures just 5.6cm wide and 10.6cm high, and is only 3cm thick, making it the ideal travelling companion for those on the move. With a large 3.3cm by 4.3cm transflective 256 colour TFT screen and LED backlit display and keypad, the eTrex will ensure that maps are always visible, no matter what the lighting conditions.

The eTrex incorporates 500 user waypoint capability, audible alarms for anchor drag, arrival, off course and clock, and a large numbers option for easy viewing. A trip computer provides odometer, stopped time, moving average, overall average, total time, maximum speed and so on.

The eTrex is compatible with most MapSource products, including BlueChart, City Navigator and Garmap Streetmaps Version 3, and also comes with built in celestial tables for best times to fish and hunt, as well as sun and moon calculations.

Retailing at R2600, the eTrex is the perfect entry level Garmin GPS navigational device for those, on land and at sea, in the city or the country, who hate the idea of getting lost. Mapping software and MicroSD are sold separately.
