Get some fresh air in your lungs

The Garmin eTrex 20 handheld navigator lets you take on Mother Nature without compromise. With this rugged waterproof companion leading the way, you can enjoy hours in the wilderness and get to know your surroundings without fear of getting lost. It also supports geocaching GPX files so you can download adventures straight to your device, saving paper and giving you more time to search.

View your maps and photos

The eTrex 20's 2.2" color screen lets you check out the included worldwide basemap with shaded relief, in any kind of light. You can even download geotagged photos from the Internet and navigate to them.

Sniffs out satellites

The eTrex 20 can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously, so it can find signals up to 20% more quickly than GPS-only handhelds and won't leave you waiting when it's time to hit the trail. It also features a WAAS-enabled GPS receiver so it'll find you in a hurry and lock on to your position. You'll be covered in deep canyons and under thick foliage, or even when surrounded by skyscrapers.

Add maps for more fun

The eTrex 20 offers 1.7 GB of onboard memory, so you can download additional topo, marine, and road maps with ease. It'll also accept maps via microSD™ card. You can also employ BirdsEye Satellite imagery with your optional subscription, allowing you to download satellite images to the eTrex 20 and integrate them into your maps. Garmin's Custom Maps feature lets you transform your old paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps you can transfer to the handheld, for extra backup.

Take the experience online

Register with Garmin Connect online and you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your handheld from your computer. You can also check things out through Google Earth, or explore trails blazed by other Garmin Connect users worldwide. You can even link to your social media accounts and share the fun. Garmin's free BaseCamp software lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks, as well as plan trips that you can share — all on your computer.
