eTrex 30x is Garmin's upgraded version of the popular eTrex 30 with enhanced screen resolution for a more readable display and internal memory expanded to hold more maps. It retains the ease-of-use, durability, and affordability that eTrex is legendary for and can be used on ATVs, bicycles, boats, or cars.
See the Way
eTrex 30x has an enhanced 2.2", 65K color, sunlight-readable display. Durable and waterproof, eTrex is built to withstand the elements. It has an upgraded interface, yet retains its legendary toughness to withstand dust, dirt, humidity, and water.
New Tools for Your Trek
eTrex 30x adds a built-in, 3-axis, and tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you're standing still. Also added is a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
With an array of compatible mounts, eTrex 30x is designed as a handheld or for use on ATVs, bicycles, boats, and cars. Use the auto mount capability and City Navigator NT maps for turn-by-turn driving directions or the rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV. Wherever you think you might take eTrex, it has the mapping and mounts to get you there.
The eTrex is the first ever receiver that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. When using GLONASS satellites, a system developed by the Russian Federation, the time it takes for the receiver to "lock on" to a position is (on average) approximately 20% faster than using GPS. And when using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than when using GPS alone.
With its microSD™ card slot and expanded 3.7 GB of internal memory, eTrex lets you load TOPO 24K and Garmin HuntView and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water, or City Navigator NT map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. eTrex also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps.
eTrex 30x lets you share your waypoints, tracks, routes, and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible devices. So now your friends also can enjoy your favorite hike or cache - simply press "send" to transfer your information.
Keep Your Fix
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-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 canyons.
eTrex 30x supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. Visit Geocaching.com to start your geocaching adventure. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. eTrex 30x stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints, and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper printouts. Simply upload the GPX file to your unit, and start hunting for caches.
