Navigation through the menus to do what you want takes a little bit of getting used to, but it does work at -25C with lithium batteries (5 hrs at -25C in my pocket snowshoeing). You will need to purchase Garmin maps, or if you're like me find them online for free (most maps are free source, not illegal). If you're in Canada, find an active torrent for Ibycus 4.0, maps are great with many trails already marked.

For me this is a replacement for an eTrex Vista. I especially appreciate the faster response in determining location. As well, I would generally rate it easier to use while retaining the compact shirt pocket size of the Vista. I find the menus easier to use. I have not explored all of the features of the device in the approximately one month I have used it.
I use the elevation tracking in measuring vertical heights from the top of cliff banks to fossil locations. If one does not need this feature or the compass the eTrex 20 is a more affordable alternative apparently with otherwise similar features. Neither the eTrex 30 or Vista are particularly accurate at determining elevation on their own; however, both did well over moderate distances if one can enter a known elevation at a location and provide good differences between points on steep terrain over a short time.
I found downloading of maps and uploading of data points and tracks to be easy. The eTrex 30 provides turn-by-turn driving navigation with warning sounds though the screen is a bit small for use in a vehicle. I have not used this in urban driving, but it worked well in rural areas.
Pros - compact size, fairly affordable elevation measure (if you need it), great for hiking and useful for auto navigation, rapidly acquires location, allows position averaging at different times for same location (presumably more accurate but I have not checked this), generally easy and usually intuitive operation.
Cons - did not come with lanyard, operation manual stored on device rather than in printed form and needs to be uploaded to computer, text entry awkward (though I do relatively little of this so not a big deal to me and I clearly knew it would be like the Vista). Data display a bit small for my ageing eyes when driving.
In summary, a solid, compact, and functional GPS unit. Good price for unit with its features. Some may prefer other models with touch screens and larger screens.

This unit is well built with a solid and compact design. I am using this for tracking hiking trails near where I live. The main issues for me as a new-comer to personal GPS units are:
- The software in the unit is just horrible to use - too many top menu choices - must jump back and forth between different areas to do things. You can't really do anything useful directly from the map display (like set waypoints or save and display tracks).
- It DOES NOT COME WITH TOPO MAPS. To me this is like buying a car and getting no tires. This unit is made for off-road use (IMO) but is not fully equipped. Be prepared to buy maps or figure out how to get them online for free.
- The Basecamp software to run on your PC is also painful to use - very poor user interface design.
- The buttons on the unit are also poorly laid out and hard to use for anyone with large hands. Part of this is because of the bad software design which forces you to jump all over the place to do things.
- Location tracking seems to be very inaccurate on occasion - sometimes I'll follow the exact same trail home and it shows me as being 10-30 meters away from the same trail on the way out.

So although it generally works well there are a lot of weak points and small irritating factors (also, no batteries, no case, no strap, no belt clip). Oh and the documentation is pretty weak also. I get the impression Garmin is riding on their reputation. Lots of room here for competitors to come out with a very superior product.
