Desperate for an inexpensive GPS unit, I bought this late in 2014. At first, its logic took some getting used to, for the track record is always on, and you have to clear the active track to start a new one. Not a big deal, because of course you can save the track before deleting it. Also, the ""back"" button seems to be the simplest way to move through menus. This unit replaced a series of an older inexpensive Garmin model, which lived up to their reputation of failing every two years or so, though they were fine up to the failure point.Anyway, after almost four years of extensive use and the occasional drop, my eTrex 10 is still getting the job done really well. The display is old-style plain, not for everyone, but this translates into superb battery life. I can run it all day on a fresh pair of rechargeable AA's without any fear of data loss.The accuracy of handheld GPS units is hard to pin down-smoke and mirrors, but this one certainly does the job for road logs and hiking records. Sensitivity is excellent and it doesn't take long to find satellites.Downloading tracks is easy and dependable, something I can't say for my old Garmin Forerunner 305 wrist GPS. When connected to a USB port, the eTrex 10's track and waypoint data appear in a virtual drive folder, for easy copy or upload to GPS software.All I want from a GPS device is reliable information on where I am and where I've been, for I depend on mapping software to deliver actual graphics. Users who want better mapping support from the unit itself would find the eTrex graphics too limited. Also, I don't go after geocaches and can't evaluate the unit for that. But the eTrex 10 is just fine for locating myself in trackless woods, for providing a work record of where I've been, and for keeping track of my auto travel details.I did have one tense moment when, for failture of housekeeping, the track memory became so full that there didn't seem to be enough left to run the track deletion sequence. Can't remember how I got around that; maybe by starting with the smallest tracks. Didn't want to do a complete reset because there was some information I had not downloaded.
