Hi everyone
I bought a garmin etrex 30 and need advice on how to use it. Is it suitable for the trips we do?
Any advice will be highly appreciated

I had quick check about the device, I think you can use it for our trips . The device saving waypoints and track however, I suggest in the future go for Montana.

I've used an etrex device in the past for hiking and mountain biking, you can enter gps coordinates to follow and mark waypoints/find your current location - it's good for emergencies (reporting your position) but i think lacks other functions for auto/offroad driving that a montana, monterra etc offer.
