"eTrex Legend™ takes car ride, survives highway impact"
I just bought an eTrex Legend GPS. I have had it about a week or so now. Sunday morning, I turned the unit on and set it on the car near the windshield wiper while loading some stuff up. Well, absent-minded me, I forgot and drove away with it on the car. When we got on the highway and sped up to about 60 mph, it blew off, tumbled down the road, and rolled under a guardrail. I stopped and went back, expecting it to be smashed to pieces. I was very happy to see it only had a couple of minor scratches, and it still works great! I have to say that the carrying case I had just put on it really helped to protect it. I am amazed and impressed it still works. I will have to buy a new case, though, as this one is pretty well trashed. I just thought you would like to hear my story.
"eTrex Legend survives tumble in Italy"
I've had my eTrex Legend for six months, and I'm extremely pleased with it. I took it on a motorcycle tour through Italy to Sicily recently, partly with the intention of logging photograph locations as waypoints. Unfortunately, after loading it with the location of the Coliseum (after reading about the chaos of navigating through Rome), it blew out from under my motorcycle windscreen at 100 mph on the Autostrada just north of Rome. I wasn't sure whether it was even worth stopping to look for it, but I did, and I was amazed to find it in one piece on the hard shoulder. I switched it on, and it initially appeared fine, but unfortunately the antenna had become loose/disconnected so it couldn't "find" any satellites.
I spoke to Garmin® U.K., and they said that if it only needed some "pushing in" they wouldn't even charge for a repair, and if they were unable to repair it, they would supply a replacement at cost! A day or two later, I booked in early to a hotel as it was raining, and decided to split the unit and try and get it functional. Without any tools, I managed to split the unit and reaffix the antenna, and the unit was working again. Unfortunately, by this time the display had developed a crack that wasn't initially apparent, so it wasn't perfect. Anyway, it was usable, and on my return to the U.K., I sent the unit to Garmin, and they have sent me a replacement at cost.
I can offer nothing but praise both for the durability of the unit (how many mobile phones would have survived bouncing down a motorway at 100 mph?), and also the generous spirit of Garmin in offering to repair or replace at cost. I would have absolutely no hesitation in buying another Garmin GPS or recommending them. First class!
"eTrex Legend assists in NGS benchmark recovery"
Having used multiple Garmin GPS units in the past, including the GPS 12, GPS 12XL, GPS II® Plus-and more recently my eTrex Legend-while camping, hiking, off roading, and geocaching, I recently discovered yet another use for my Garmin GPS and I feel compelled to write and inform you of it.
I've begun locating National Geodetic Survey benchmarks in my area, first as another reason to use my eTrex® Legend and now as a way to assist the NGS ( http://www.ngs.noaa.gov) in "recovering" the survey marks. Benchmark Recovery is the term used for locating and verifying whether or not these benchmarks still exist in the locations where they were placed by surveyors. This dates back to 1807 when the NGS was established by then President Thomas Jefferson to survey our nation's coastlines.
The NGS doesn't have the resources to perform periodic recovery of the many benchmarks located throughout the continental United States and, thus, relies on private companies and citizens for assistance. They are very appreciative of citizens who take it upon themselves to report the existence and/or condition of these marks. Many are found moved, destroyed, or missing, and those which are will likely never be replaced. With the help of my Garmin GPS, I feel I am doing a service to my country by helping our nation's first civilian scientific agency.
