    Hiking GPS

    I have a eTrex Legend HC and am thinking of upgrading to a eTrex 20-30.

    Does anyone have a 20? On mine the buttons on the side are very difficult to push. On the 20 are the buttons easier to push?

    Some models are swipe screen, but I'm thinking I would like to keep the buttons.

    sorry, just saw this post, I have the touch35 and highly recommend it. Touch screen is great and you can set up different profiles for different activities, including different mapsets. I use road for riding and usgs for walking or hiking. Also, Open Source maps work VERY nicely.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I used the Legend for years and the legend hCX for more years, The touch 35 is awesome!!!!!

    I have been riding with one iteration or another of the eTrex since 2005
