The GPS software controls how satellites are received and tracked while the unit software controls how the unit functions in terms of the user interface and tracking dogs.The newest units permits 10 character names and these can include spaces.The emap, 76 family, and etrex store waypoints in 3 dimensions by including altitude. The 76 family will also store depth data for water if an optional depth sensor is attached.They are often used to store intermediate turns and intersections that help define a route to a particular destination.Similar to the waystations used by pony express riders as stopover points waypoints mark significant places on your journey.We believe that our combination of price, knowledge and customer service is the best that you will find anywhere.
One of the things that has been changing on a pretty regular basis is the Astro Software.
It replaces the popular Legend and Vista HCx models and the e Trex series is now listed by number.
There is the e Trex 10, the e Trex 20 and the e Trex 30.
The new e Trex series includes all of the recent improvments to Garmin units, such as the Oregon, Dakota and 62/78 series.
(Paperless geocaching, multiple mapsets, Garmin's Birds Eye imagery, Garmin Custom Maps) A new feature in the e Trex is the ability to receive GLONASS satellite signals (the Russian version of GPS), which gives users more satellites to acquire data from.
In some documents and gps receivers these may also be called landmarks.
