First trip with a Garmin eTrex Venture

Headed up to the Brecon Beacons on the weekend to walk across the Black Mountain from the east side heading west, then up onto the ridge above the reservoir and back. For those that don’t know the Black Mountain it’s a wide open space of upland – easy to get lost if the weather is bad or it gets dark. I took along my Garmin eTrex Venture HC Handheld GPS Navigator to check out how it performs.

Firstly the screen is clear and easy to read, and it fits nicely in the hand. It found my position very quickly (20-30 seconds) and didn’t have any problems maintaining it – though I didn’t go into any deep cover or woods.

The basemap that comes with this walkers gps is just that, basic. So I’ve used the mapsource map for this area which is highly detailed and easy to use. Well worth getting these maps.

The Garmin recorded my route perfectly and gave me figures for the time I’d been out, the distance I walked, my speed at different points and even the time I spent standing still!

Benefits of Hand Held GPS

A Hand Held GPS, or Walkers GPS, is an ideal companion for those taking part in outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, mountaineering, cycling, running or just exploring the countryside.

A GPS unit will help to:

  • provide a current location
  • plan a route
  • show the previous route
  • navigate back home
  • distance travelled and to the next location

They can make your outdoor activity much more enjoyable and safer as you can concentrate on what you want to do rather than worring about where you are, or how to get there.

Where to buy a GPS for Walkers Systems

Buying in a store has the advantage of seeing the unit before buying and possibly having it demonstated to you. Support is often available from high street stores.

Buying online has the advantage of being able to compare many different models, suppliers and prices.

There are thousands of web sites trying to sell GPS for walkers systems, but the ones featured here are by far the best in terms of price and reliability. If you do decide to shop around at other web sites be careful to check that they are legitimate. Check that they have a contact address and telephone number in the UK and maybe call them to ensure they are who they say they are on the web site. Make sure you have read and understand any delivery and returns policy. If they don’t have them be careful about ordering a gps from them!

What are GPS systems

Walkers GPS in Use

Walkers GPS in Use

GPS is the navigation based on U.S. radio navigation system to provide people worldwide with free continuous positioning, navigation and PNT service. As you get a receiver, you are provided with location and time by the system. GPS can provide all people in the world with accurate location and time information in all climates and during the day or night. GPS consists of three parts:

  • satellite in orbit around the earth
  • monitoring station on the ground
  • receiver held by users.

America has a responsibility for developing, maintaining and operating the space and control rooms.

The space part includes a satellite group. The GPS satellite transmits signals that can be recognized and received by the receiver in space. Each receiver can display the time and position in three dimensions, including longitude, latitude and altitude. The world monitoring station is the control part. It maintains the satellite is working properly by sending out the order all the time. At the same time, it will also regulate the satellite clock. In addition, it also follows the GPS satellite, downloads data enhanced navigation satellite group and keeps running in an orderly manner.

The GPS receiver is the third part. They receive signals from the satellite’s position and work in three dimensions and PNT through information received. With a Walkers GPS, the user can easily acquire a good knowledge of their precise position and find their destination, regardless of when they are on foot, by car or sail. Walkers GPS has become a mainstay of walkers everywhere.
