See the Way

eTrex 30x has an enhanced 2.2″, 65K colour, sunlight-readable display.  Durable and water-resistant, eTrex 30x is built to withstand the elements.  It has an upgraded interface yet retains its toughness to withstand dust, dirt, humidity or water.

New Tools for Your Trek

The built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass keeps your bearings even when you’re standing still or not holding it level.  Also added is a barometric altimeter that tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your altitude.  Use it to plot barometric pressure over time to help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

Go Anywhere

Fit your eTrex 30x just about anywhere, using an array of compatible mounts.  Use the auto mount capability and either Garmin TOPO PRO, Tracks4Africa or City Navigator NT maps for turn-by-turn driving directions, or the rugged mount and Tracks4Africa for your bike or quad.  You can even mount to a boat for fishing or sailing trips.

Go Global

The eTrex series can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously, it has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using just GPS.  What’s more, the time it takes to “lock on” to a position is (on average) 20% faster than using GPS alone.  With its high-sensitivity GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, eTrex locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep valleys.

Preloaded Recreational Map of Africa

eTrex 30x comes preloaded with the **Recreational Map of Africa – Topo Light.  This map enables you to orienteer and reference any outdoor or recreational activity in 58 African countries, compiled using the community-generated *OpenStreetMap (OSM) database.

  • Includes non-routable street and off-road networks, international boundaries, waterways, natural features, land use areas, historical sites, airport structures, buildings and more.
