Add Maps - With its microSD™ card slot and expanded 3.7 GB of internal memory, eTrex 20x lets you load TOPO 24K and Garmin HuntView ™ and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator NT map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. eTrex 20x also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps..
Find Fun -eTrex 20x supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. Visit Geocaching.com to start your geocaching adventure. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. eTrex 20x stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper printouts. Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches.
Go Global -The eTrex series is the first-ever consumer-grade receivers that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. When using GLONASS satellites, a system developed by the Russian Federation, 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.
Plan Your Next Trip - Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp™, software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.

|A New Adventure
Garmin Australasia is pleased to announce the new eTrex series. Garmin eTrex, a recognisable name in the outdoors, has been embraced by the market for over a decade, selling millions of units. The newly redesigned eTrex lineup will retain the core functionality such as rugged construction and long battery life that made eTrex famous, while adding capabilities normally found in premium handhelds. An already easy-to-use device has gotten easier thanks to an improved user interface complimented by an “updated” look with refinements such as buttons identified by text.
The eTrex 10 is a great choice for the budget savvy consumer desiring a basic GPS device. This device features a 2.2” monochrome display and a worldwide basemap making it easier than ever to see where you are and where you have been. The eTrex 20 and eTrex 30 add a 2.2” 65k colour sunlight readable display, a shaded relief worldwide basemap, and internal memory plus a microSD™ card slot. Building on the feature set of the eTrex 20, the eTrex 30 adds a 3-axis electronic compass that shows your heading even when the unit is not held flat, as well as a barometric altimeter that provides precise elevation readings, and wireless unit-to-unit connectivity
for sharing waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches. Customers are able to use the internal memory with the microSD™ card slot on the eTrex 20 and eTrex 30 to add TOPO New Zealand and Australia, road and marine mapping options.
Legacy customers such as hunters/hikers will continue to be drawn to eTrex, but the new features will expand its appeal. A geocacher will notice paperless geocaching and the ability to wirelessly share caches. Geocachers can help the environment and be more efficient by going paperless with the eTrex series, quickly downloading cache information directly to the device. Each model stores and displays cache information such as location, terrain, difficulty, hints and description, so that you don’t have to tote printouts with you. Learn more about geocaching, such as how to get started or go paperless at www.garmin.com/geocaching and www.OpenCaching.com. The worldwide user will notice that eTrex tracks more than just GPS by branching out with multi constellation GNSS support such as
Small in size, but big on features. The new eTrex are the perfect companions for all of your outdoor adventures.
