In the latest catalogue they have this advertised on page 9, purchase before 31st December to redeem a BONUS GARMIN eTrex H Handheld GPS valued at $149.00

I'm happy so far with this, the touch screen response time is excellent compare to my Mio Moov which I had nothing but trouble with.

    Ha - seems a bit wierd to throw in an etrex to the deal but I guess they are trying to get rid of discontinued stock.

    From my experience with Garmin, I'd question the claim that the two AA batteries will last your etrex 22 hours - a lot of that depends on how heavily your using the display and functions. These are pretty basic units and I guess the reason they are discontinued is because they're replaced them with things like the forerunners.

    I've got a forerunner 205 that I use on the motorbike. I bought it thinking that I'd either smash it in the first week or find that it couldnt really keep up with the pace on the tracking. Have been pleasantly surprised in that its still works, keeps a very accurate log of the trails and the backtrack function does actually work to get you out of trouble. It seems to keep the fix even when it fairly heavily wooded areas and after having been smacked against a good few trees and tumbles it still functions.

    The battery life comes pretty close to that. We used several of these eTrex for turtle monitoring last year with vollies who had often never seen a GPS b4 and they were great. I was suprised how infrequently I had to replace the batteries. They are a simple little unit that's easy to use and it did everything we needed it to do. Good xmas pressie for a teenage boy. I wouldn't go the deal just for that option but hey ...

    I've got one of the early garmin handhelds as a backup - probably about 6 years old - takes 4 AA's and works off a mono screen. Even on really low use ie checking getting a fix every couple of hours while on a boat the batteries would die pretty quickly. I guess though that they continually make the tech more efficient in the power consumption.
