"This product has hunting and wilderness adventure written all over it," said Gary Kelley, director of marketing, Garmin International. "When we added the REALTREE HARDWOODS® pattern to the eTrex, we had sportsmen squarely in our sights."
Concealed beneath the new sportsman-friendly pattern is a compact, waterproof handheld GPS - among the smallest on the market. Measuring roughly 4"x 2"x1" and weighing less than 6 oz., this personal navigator is packed with all of the features of the original eTrex, plus a hunting and fishing calculator that provides optimal times of day to plan your sporting excursions. The eTrex offers easy, one-hand operation with buttons located on each side; logical operations, using four information pages; proven 12-channel GPS performance; long battery life (22 hours on two AA batteries); storage for up to 500 waypoints, including 30 user-configurable icons from which to choose; and GARMIN’s patented TracBack technology to find your way back to your starting point.
The camo-colored eTrex is expected to be available in February 2001 and has a list price of $145.
