Our Comment

eTrex 30x is Garmin's upgraded version of the popular eTrex 30, with enhanced screen resolution and extended internal memory to hold more maps.

The device is preloaded with Garmin TopoActive Map which supports a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, geocaching, cycling, mountaineering and fishing.

Garmin TopoActive Western Europe is based on OpenStreetMaps (OSM) mapping data and covers the following countries: Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the Vatican City.

OSM map data is crowd-sourced so the quality and completeness depends heavily on local mapping coverage.
