Horrible experience. Spent hours on line attempting to download software on my laptop to set up device. Was being told that I had to pay between $129 (3 years) to $200 (lifetime)for software. Only to find that the Garmin etrex30x that was sent and no maps were loaded. They wanted to charge me another $100 for the maps or they said return the device as it was defective. My wife and I now have no time left to purchase another unit as we are leaving in two days. Extremely disappointed with Garmin. DO NOT Purchase this device!!!!!!!
Long time Garmin GPS user purchasing this unit as a replacement for my trusty old GPSMAP which had broken after rough treatment. Frankly speaking, you need to think very carefully as to whether a seperate GPS unit makes sense anymore. During the period where I was without a unit I was using my iPhone instead. The iPhone is superior in many ways. Screen resolution, free high quality maps, free navigation apps, fast user interface response and easier transfer sharing of waypoints maps and routes.
On the other hand, I did miss a few key areas where a Garmin eTrex or GPSMAP device is superior. 1. iPhone touch screens do not work in the rain or when you are sweaty (ie on a jungle walk) or on a wet dive/ fishing boat. 2. The iPhone screen is less legible in full sunlight. 3. The iPhone GPS receiver antenna is far less reliable in dense cover (eg around trees or buildings). 4. iPhone units are not particular hard wearing. Like I mentioned above, my former GPSMAP had been dropped squashed smashed and submerged in salt water many many times. It finally failed after I used cheap Alkaline batteries on a trip which leaked internally after the unit was left in the sun on the car dashboard. I had that reliable unit for 9 years.
However I just cannot get past the fact that the units are comically slow to navigate through menus and settings. Forget about zooming in map view!
Come on Garmin. This is 2019. Fix the speed of the units. Improve the screen resolution, size and legibility. Unit you do this I’m holding off upgrading my handheld GPS unit.
The good... Hmmm, well I guess I can’t complain about the accuracy of the device
The bad and the ugly... Welcome back 2005 (or maybe 1995?)... The last Garmin GPS I bought was over 10 years ago... It was fine and I assumed Garmin would have made huge improvements over the years since tech moves so fast... So as you can imagine I was shocked when I discovered that very little had changed with this new device or the software... Felt a little like I just bought a brand new flip phone when I was expecting an iPhone 11
As we approach 2020, I would expect a lot more! Base camp is really hard to figure out and really manual! I would recommend scrapping that Garmin! I could understand having to purchase map packages last century, but in 2019??? And they aren’t cheap either if you want some decent maps... I purchased a low end package and the resolution was quite bad.
The user interface on the device itself really no better than the GPS device I used when I was in the Marine in the mid 1990s.
I also purchased a Garmin Instinct Watch to pair it up for am upcoming backwoods hiking trip... Didn’t really work for me... Sent that back too... Going with the SUUNTO GPS Watch...
Returned and would not recommend... All in all a pretty bad experience with Garmin.
Bought this eTrex 30x to upgrade from and older eTrex Venture. (The Venture works good for cycling, but was very inaccurate for hiking and, since COVID-19 shut down our bike trails, we have been doing lots of hiking.) First, regarding user interface, I agree with other reviews that found the 30x very difficult to operate (compared to Venture), but I felt I could figure it out eventually. The real problem is the accuracy of the unit. This AM we did a careful baseline comparison with Map My Tracks (MMT) on an iPhone (its free!), on a state trail of known length, ~3 miles. Mostly we are interested in distance traveled and average walking pace (speed). The MMT was spot on at slightly over 3 miles and an average speed of 2.0 mph. The 30X, however, had these startling results: Distance traveled was 2.75 miles but the average speed was 19.9 mph!! The reason for this is that the unit logged only 8 and a half minutes 'Moving' and 1 hour 31 minutes ' Stopped'. I have no explanation for these results and I have no interest in trying to figure it out. My unit must be wired wrong or something because I haven't seen similar reviews. I will be returning it.
I do a lot of hunting and needed a gps bought it ... next day returned. comes with no maps and if you want maps then go to garmin.com and pay an $89 for US hunting maps and prices range from $40 and up depending of what you do biking etc . No instructions, not easy to use at all.
What a waste. Original usb connection known to man. Pulled up maps and nothing. You have to buy the maps or go thru a bunch of youtubes on how to download bootleg maps. Maybe just me, but wish I could open the box and get directions and maps. Thought I could use for the kayak and hiking, so didn't go with the waterproof. Now I see they probably built this when cobol was hot. Jayhawkers at their tech best.
It is totally not user friendly, and this is coming from a person who has had several Garmin GPS devises, with a long experience of marine chart plotters. I presume Garmin is attempting to install way too many options.
