Download GPX files for paperless geocaching as the Garmin handheld GPS unit stores and displays key information, such as location, terrain, difficulty, hints, and descriptions.
The high-quality eTrex10 features an enhanced 2.2” monochrome display that‘s easy to read in any lighting situation. Both durable and waterproof, it is built to withstand the elements. Its easy-to-use interface means students spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information.

The eTrex10 supports geocaching GPX files for transferring geocaches. By going paperless, you’re not only helping the environment, but also improving efficiency. The device stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints, and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper printouts. Simply upload the GPX file to the eTrex10 and get started!
Additionally, eTrex Devices are the first-ever consumer-grade receivers that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. When using GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to “lock on” to a position is (on average) approximately 20% faster than using GPS. When using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites rather than using GPS alone.
All Ages Will Enjoy
The device can be used by students of all ages. Elementary kids will be able to understand the simplicity of the interface all the way up to adults looking to go geocaching around the outdoors. With its high-sensitivity WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, eTrex10 locates the position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.Why incorporate geocaching/orienteering into my program?
