    Comments about Garmin eTrex Venture HC GPS:

    This latest of the iconic eTrex line holds all my 1:24,000 Quad topo maps for the Three Sisters Wilderness near Bend in Oregon. No camera, tunes, bogus barometric altimeter, electric compass, FRS radio, etc. Used with the Garmin topo maps and a computer at home, you can plan adventures from home with pre-set UTM waypoints and accurate tracks to the top and return, giving you the "Freedom of the Hills".
