Get Your Bearings
The eTrex 30 has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you're standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
Rock Solid GPS
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, eTrex 30 will locate your position quickly and precisely, maintaining its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With added HotFix and GLONASS support, you can count on faster positioning and a more reliable signal--whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on eTrex 30 to help you find your way when you need it the most.
Rugged and Ready
The eTrex 30 is a breeze to operate, indoors and out, with five buttons on either side within easy reach. With its bright orange case and included lanyard, it's tough to lose. Plus, since the eTrex 30 is waterproof to IPX7 standards, it can take an accidental splash or dunk in the water and still continue to perform.
Find It and Go
With eTrex 30, your adventure will last, with over 20 hours of battery life on two AA batteries (rechargeable NiMH or Lithium batteries work great). As a handheld, it's plenty portable, weighing in at just 5 ounces with batteries. It's also compatible with a variety of spine mounting accesories, for use in cycling or other activities.
eTrex 30 also supports geocaching, a high-tech version of hide-and-seek where you explore the outdoors in search of hidden "treasure" and adventure. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants (members) navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. The eTrex 30 is the perfect way to get started.
With eTrex 30 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS users. So now your friends also can enjoy your favorite hike or cache.
