I have the original Garmin etrex. It had some issues losing the signal in the trees and the batteries would only last a few hours. I updated the firmware and both problems were fixed. Turns out the unit tried to poll too often. You may want to cover datum sets because I ran into that last month. Using the coodinates I had, my friend ended up 22 miles off. We figured out he was using a different format and even though my coordinates were correct, he was reading them differently.

Cool, any and every help will be gratefully accepted. The "class" is during our next meeting.
