1. Does this unit come with batteries?

No, but it just requires x2 AA batteries. We would recommend some good quality rechargeable batteries, as it will use a set every day.

2. What is the difference between the eTrex Touch 25t and eTrex Touch 35t?

The Touch 35t has a barometric altimeter. It also has ANT+ sensor support and Smartphone    Notifications.

3. What are each of the map options available with this unit?

– Garmin TOPO ACTIVE Maps

Garmin TOPO ACTIVE mapping is a proper digital map, as you zoom in you get more information and as you zoom out you get less. BUT it is not an Ordnance Survey map, therefore it does not differentiate between Bridleways and Footpaths, it just marks them as paths.

It covers 47 European countries, compiled using the community generated OpenStreetMap (OSM) database.

– With Birdseye PLUS Voucher (25,000 sq km of 1:25k maps)

You activate the map credit against your Garmin account and then once you have this map credit in place you have one year to download your 25,000 sq km of 1:25k maps.

25,000 sq km is larger than the size of Wales and the area you choose can be split (i.e. you can choose areas from all over the country).

Don’t worry, if you buy the unit from Outdoor GPS Shop you will get a step by step guide of how to download this mapping.

– With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k

This is full GB at 1:50k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

Don’t worry, here at the Outdoor GPS Shop we set the unit up for you so you can easily use these features and we even include a quick start guide so you can quickly get up and running with your GPS unit.

  1. 5 out of 5

    Daryl Freeman

    Bought this just before Christmas for both my mountain biking and walking. Used it lots over the festive break and really do like it. i went for the 1:50k full country mapping option and glad I did. When cycling on the road it routes me via the roads and when walking it navigates me in a similar way (but using the footpaths) when I walk locally in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Thanks for setting the unit up guys and finding a bike mount in the box was a real bonus. great service!
