The latest eTrex units had this issue when they came out but it was fixed with an update.

Definitely check your firmware version:

Software 3.11

    * Added brightness adjustments for BirdsEye imagery.
    * Improved WAAS performance.
    * Improved speed, trip odometer, and stopped/moving time data fields while in low velocity.
    * Fixed issue with map POI's showing twice for a single point.
    * Fixed elevation profiles to always use the most detailed DEM data loaded.
    * Fixed future plot with tracks that have no elevations in them.
    * Fixed issue with calculator % function.

I'm not sure, but the odometers on all the different units I've owned never seem very accurate to me...

haha same here


yea, just updated to the latest beta and took a hike around the lake here; it definitely improved it said 1.62 while the garmin forerunner said 1.69 so pretty close.
