Here at Lakehead Communications Anywhere Connected in GPS is only one name Garmin. Whether it is to use for navigating like the eTrex 10 or as a communicator as in inReach we have the latest technology. Garmin a pioneer in the field of GPS units, with features like GPS and GLONASS satellites for faster positioning, paperless geocaching, BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, Bluetooth connectivity to compatible smartphones, SOS functions that are connected 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center, and two-way text satellite messaging make the Garmin first choice for many outdoor enthusiasts. Picking a GPS unit will depend on what feature is important to our needs.
eTrex devices are the first-ever consumer-grade receivers that can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. When using GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to “lock on” to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS. And when using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using GPS alone.
Find Your Cache
GPSMAP 66s and GPSMAP 66st devices make it easier than ever to enjoy your geocaching experience. Set it to automatically update with all the latest caches from Geocaching Live, including cache descriptions, logs, and hints. With a Wi-Fi® connection or through Garmin Connect™ on a compatible smartphone, you’ll avoid manually entering coordinates or printing out cache details on paper — and each find will automatically upload to your Geocaching.com profile. Another feature gives access to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery with direct-to-device downloads to help you find your way plus preloaded TOPO U.S. and Canada maps on GPSMAP 66s. And it offers multi-GNSS support as well as wireless connectivity for Active Weather, direct downloads and Garmin Explore compatibility.
Pair with Your Mobile Device
For even more capability and convenience, the free Earthmate® app or Garmin Explore mobile app syncs your GPS or inReach handheld via Bluetooth® with your compatible Apple® or Android™ device¹ so you can access unlimited maps, aerial imagery, and U.S. NOAA charts. Plus, apps allow you to conveniently use all of the GPS and inReach features on your paired mobile device. For easier messaging, you can also access your phone’s contact list from the Earthmate app to connect with fewer keystrokes.
