GPS REVIEW: Garmin eTrex Line Overview

Garmins eTrex line has been a good performer for the last couple of years. With the recent addition of the color models (Legend C and Vista C), Garmin has incorporated some much needed features to keep the line competitive. The eTrex line starts with a solid but very basic GPS receiver, the eTrex or eTrex Camo, and continues to add features like mapping, altimeters, electronic compasses, color and storage capacity as you move up the line. The low end can be had for less than $100, while the fully loaded color versions go for over $300.

Time also liked the ease of use right out of the box. The Garmin StreetPilot C330 is a step down from the Garmin StreetPilot C340 in the C-series line. When we used the Garmin StreetPilot C340, we loved it, and hated to send it back (see our review).
