Garmin eTrex 22x


The eTrex range is essentially a hiking or MTB GPS units. Many off-road motorcyclists also uses this GPS on races (where they follow GPX tracks).  The ’22’ is a map capable unit which means you can load Tracks4Africa maps to it.  The unit is small and can be fitted with a carabiner to clip onto your backpack.

Mounts are also available to fit onto a MTB or bike handle bar and a vehicle mount is also available.  This unit would not be our primary overland navigation unit, as the screen is small for in vehicle use, but it makes for a very good and solid backup unit.  And on a hike you cannot beat this unit.  Two AA batteries (lithium) will last up to 25 hours on this unit.  This makes the unit a firm favourite for any outdoors person who like to switch between activities and need a dependable GPS unit.  Highly recommended!
