eTrex H in GPS technology and devices Posted August 5, 2009 They aren't using it for navigation. Just simply gathering a GPS location to enter into the system. Nothing more, nothing less. The drive to a location, plop an LP tank on the ground, record the location. The eTrex H should do that. Based on your description of how you will use it, it sounds as though they will be writing down the coordinates rather than recording the location with the gps. I'm guessing they can do that just fine with the eTrex H and probably able to do it by just turning the unit off and on. If you want to record the location with the gps rather than writing it down, I would take one step up and get the Venture HC - that unit comes with a USB cable that enables communication with the computer. Yeah, I want to go to any automated process that connects to a hand held PC, but that may be down the road. Right now they go to the spot, drop the tank, take the GPS reading and write it down to enter into the system electronically later. Appreciate the help. I thought that was going to be a relatively easy, straight-forward request.
