GPSr Units / Garmin Etrex Venture HC - Good Choice?
June 18, 2010, 02:28:44 AM
My wife wanted a GPS for use when horseback riding on trials.  Simply wants to be able to make tracklogs (bread crumbs) to show where she has been and get back to base camp.  Maybe save 4 or 5 trail experiences.  I have ordered her a Garmin Etrex Venture HC.

1) Will the base map already on the unit be good enough for tracking A to B and bread crumbs back to A?  No elevation and detailed topos desired by her...keep it simple.
2) Are there maps that you would recommend for off road trail use in western NC/SC that would cover more detail from a base camp going out no more than a 25 mile radius?
3) Did I goof up by not buying her a GPS with an SD card in view that she wants the basics?

Thanks from a handheld GPS Newbie
