General Discussion / Garmin TOPO US 100K errors in trail location
« on: October 28, 2016, 06:52:47 AM »
I'm new to using a land based GPS, I'm a converted sailor and have used Garmin marine GPS units and they have always been really good.
However, I recently purchased an eTrex30 with TOPO 100K. While getting used to the unit and the Base Camp software I noticed that the representation of a trail(Cascade Link,Mount Monadnock) was off quite a bit. I wrote Garmin support, questioning as to why and if that view was unique to Base Camp or would I see the same on the trail. They basically said that's what I get and suggested buying TOPO US 24K. I'm not confident that it will be more accurate.
Can some more experienced hikers please weigh in?
