Military son favorite
I just purchased about week ago, and I just tried few short hike with this eTrex22x. Since this is the my first GPS, it takes few days to figure it out. I was thinking over and over between two GPS for month. One is mainly for cycling, and another one is this eTrex22x which mainly for hiking. The another GPS for mainly cycling is about $100 more expensive and it has more large touches screen. Like a smart phone. Since I was looking for GPS for mainly hiking/bike tour, I choose this eTrex22x. My first impression was obviously small screen as compared to smartphones which we mostly use in daily life. But I think this design was good for grip in hand safely without dropping during the hike. And I feel comfortable and secure with gripping. And my favorite part are run by 2AA battery, so I don’t need to worry about recharge like a smart phone. Just switch battery in the minute. And it run much longer hour than internal battery GPS system. And additional SD card for more memory. I didn’t tried for bike tour yet, because I didn’t get bike mount for eTrex22x yet.Also Garmin Base Camp for computer works fine,too.
I bought 2 for our vacation mushroom hunting in Michigan without it I can’t even imagine. So we could find our way back to the truck! There easy to use and accurate! The woods looks the same up there no land marks to go back to. The batteries last about two days nonstop witch is good but that can get expensive with week long hikes or using them a lot! I feel the one trip that we have used them paid for them! Well worth the money!
I've been using an eTrex 10 with a paper map for about a year. When they announced the topoActive map with this I decided to give it a try. The additional features are great. The attached picture is a topoActive map. Putting the pointer over a street gives the street name. The distance and direction to the location are shown. Hitting select gives you data on that selected spot. This morning I made way points and a route from the map and walked it using the compass. Very accurate.

At this point in my life I don't need that.I bought the North America automotive map and it works quite well with this. I used it this morning to navigate somewhere where I had a back way. The Garmin rerouted without protest. You can search for gas stations, truck stops, places to eat, hotels/motels and such with both the topo and road maps but the topo thinks you are a crow.Did I say that I really like this? I really do.
This thing works fantastic for a NH Hiker, Hunter, Driver, Etc.
