Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a great little gizmo for the money. It does all the basic stuff, nothing fancy, but it does have a route planning feature to allow navigation round a series of waypoints. It also survived my clumsily dropping it onto concrete, so it's quite robust. A pair of AA batteries last about 18 hours - not bad.
Bad points:
The buttons are very hard to press - fortunately I am not arthritic, but if I was, I think this could be a problem.

I wish there was a facility to pan on the tracking map, so you can zoom into the entire track and move around, rather than just around where you presently are.

Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts on a budget, eTrex H comes with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that locks onto satellite signals quickly and maintains accuracy — even in the toughest conditions. And just like the popular eTrex, this little yellow wonder combines an intuitive interface and a rugged exterior into a lightweight handheld that fits in the palm of your hand.

Enjoy Clear Reception

With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, eTrex H locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear — whether you’re in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on eTrex H to help you find your way when you need it the most.

Built for Adventure

You can operate your eTrex H with just one hand using five buttons, which are located on either side of eTrex H within easy reach of your fingers. Thanks to its bright yellow case, eTrex H is easy to find in your boat or backpack. And, eTrex H is IPX7 waterproof, so it can take an accidental splash or dunk in the water and still continue to perform.

Find It and Go

With eTrex H, your adventure can last and last — up to 17 hours on just 2 AA batteries. While you roam, you can store up to 500 waypoints in memory for easy retrieval. Just enter the point you want to go to, and eTrex H points you to your destination (no street or terrain maps). To get home, use Garmin’s exclusive TrackBack® feature to reverse your track log and help you navigate back to your starting point.

eTrex H: Lock onto the great outdoors.
