Garmin eTrex Summit ... GPS, altimeter, and electronic compass. The electronic compass provides bearing information when you're standing still and the altimeter determines precise altitude, so you can tell how high you've climbed and your rate of ascent.

This is a tough, well designed and compact handheld gps device.

The memory capacity of the Legend C is fixed, and it is only 24Mb, and this is one of the main downsides to this unit. It hasn t got enough capacity to store the metroguide map for the whole of the UK, which means that you have to load the device with the regions you ll be travelling in, rather that just putting mapping for the ...

Good price. feature-rich
Still some typical sat-nav foibles. Map updates not an economic proposition. Cheaper to get another
