Still have mine as a backup
I started with this unit when we first got into Geocaching. It worked well and got us to GZ with ease. The only downfall and big complaint is the PC connection. A USB to Serial cable was not available from Garmin and it took a while to find one. Unfortunately it may well have been a cheap cable and no longer works so I have been looking for a replacement. They are harder to find than Hens teeth so we had no other choice but to upgrade, which we did to an Etrex 10. we now use the etrexH as a backup and it is handy for entering waypoints for multi's
Small, efficient on batteries and does what it says on the box! :)
Finally a straightforward product for the average user! I found that the eTrex High Sensitivity to be perfect for Kayaking, walking and fishing. Nearly as accurate as the higher spec units that cost six times what this little number is being sold for.
Absolutly perfect for those that are wanting to get into Geocashing and bushwalking without getting lost with a trackback function and illuminated screen for night use.
Hugely reliable, inexpensive, good on batteries and easy to read.
Garmin state that there are aftermarket items available for the eTrex H - however I have found it near impossible to buy anything, even the data cable is impossible to find, or the belt clip... Thats all - otherwise ok.
