Cabelas has the etrex 30 on sale for 200.00 for the next 12 days.
So overall, for the ones with a garmin etrex 30
does it work well in wood canopies?
is it easy to add your own custom maps to it,
can you see your tracking points once you connect to a pc.
i have the etrex 30.
- there have only been a couple times where my signal has bounced around a bit and i was about 50 yards off but it only lasts for a few minutes. 98% of the time i have a great signal.
- very easy to add custom maps using google earth and garmin base camp, once you figure out how to do it.
- I am not sure about the tracking points, I think there is a way but not sure. Someone else could probably elaborate, i dont think the etrex works too much differently than the other garmins.
Thanks for the garmin help link!
