This product will provide position accuracy to less than three meters when receiving WAAS corrections.

The memory capacity of one megabyte allows the eTrex Venture to accept downloaded information from GARMIN's new MapSourceŽ Points of Interests CD-ROM. The CD enables users to download locations such as restaurants, hotels, shopping, and entertainment. Once the information is loaded into the unit, you can make a selection and telephone and address information for a particular point of interest will appear on the screen.
