item features

The eTrex series can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously – it has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using just GPS. What’s more, the time it takes to “lock on” to a position is (on average) 20% faster than using GPS alone. With its high-sensitivity EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, eTrex locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep valleys.

Preloaded Garmin TopoActive Map

eTrex 20x comes preloaded with the new Garmin TopoActive map of Western Europe, a perfect starting point for your first recreational activity with GPS. The map provides relevant useful information for activities like hiking and cycling, it's routable and shows elevation changes. Garmin TopoActive Western Europe covers the following 23 countries: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Vatican City. 

Use the microSD™ card slot to load additional advanced maps – like Topo maps, BlueChart® g2 marine maps or City Navigator® NT maps. eTrex 20x also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required) to download and integrate with your maps.

Find Fun

eTrex 20x supports paperless geocaching GPX files for endless geocaching adventures. Just visit to download geocaches straight to your device, then start hunting for caches! eTrex 20x stores all the key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also avoiding the bother of manually entering co-ordinates.

I bought 6 of these for our Scout Group so we could go GeoCaching. They have held up well, even with the Scouts trying there best to break them! Really like the size of this unit and the base maps that come with the GPS are really good. All together great value for money.
