Garmin eTrex 30 Wireless GPS 010-00970-20 represents the pinnacle of the revitalized eTrex line by Garmin. Whereas the eTrex 10 and eTrex 20 offered improvements over the original eTrex, the eTrex 30 takes the popular Garmin GPS navigator to the next level. Like the eTrex 20, the eTrex 30 features a 65k color screen and rugged construction that won't take damage from dust, dirt, humidity, and submersion, but it's the improved navigational aspects and bonus features of the Garmin eTrex 30 Handheld GPS Navigator that really set it apart. An integrated barometric altimeter both keeps track of your altitude and allows you to predict upcoming inclement weather, while the 3 axis tilt-compensated electronic compass in the eTrex 30 allows you to see your direction, even when you're holding the GPS at an angle. And with the Garmin eTrex 30 GLONASS GPS, finding and keeping a signal has never been easier. One of the first consumer devices to support GLONASS, the E Trex 30 can acquire signal 20% faster than traditional GPS locators, a speedy time that's further augmented by the unit's WAAS GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction technology.
Far more than a simple navigational device, the Garmin eTrex 30 Waterproof GPS can be a source of tons of group fun on your next outing. Like other eTrex GPS units, the e-Trex 30 features paperless geocaching, which allows you to track every aspect of your geocache hunt right on your GPS without using a single scrap of paper. But a unique feature that really puts the Garmin eTrex 30 Paperless Geocaching GPS a cut above the other eTrex models is its wireless communication capabilities. You can wirelessly share information like tracks, routes, waypoints, and even GPX geocaching files with other Garmin GPS navigation devices, allowing you to tackle objectives as a team or coordinate a group hike. With the ability to download additional maps and take the GPS with you using Garmin GPS accessories, the Garmin eTrex 30 Handheld GPS Locator is the king of the eTrex series.
