I have used the Garmin etrex Venture HC GPS for over a year and I’m very satisfied with it. This GPS does not have all the bells and whistles like other higher-priced GPS devices designed for hiking, but it has enough. I never go on a trail without the Garmin etrex Venture HC GPS and has many uses other than what I’m using it for. I record all my hiking trips with it. This GPS is good for telling you how far you have gone and how fast/slow you’re going. It’s rugged and cheap enough to take with you on every trip.
eTrex Venture HC is an essential for any outdoor excursion. It features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver for peak performance in any environment and includes 24 megabytes (MB) of internal memory, a detailed basemap and crisp color screen.
