Truly a small wonder, the Etrex takes the best features of a 12 parallel channel GPS receiver. The result is a unit that will literally fit in the palm of your hand. Besides its small size, mariners and outdoors men will likely notice the sleek design of the Etrex. All buttons are located on either side of the unit, allowing for simple, one handed operation that will not obstruct your view of the display. Thanks to its bright yellow case, the Etrex will be hard to misplace and easy to find in any boat or backpack. The Etrex is completely waterproof so it can take an accidental splash or dunk in the water and still continue to perform. In addition, the Etrex uses animated graphics that will help you identify your marked waypoints quickly and easily.
