Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware! Buyer Beware!Even though Garmin as been around for a long time,Their software-BaseCamp has so many flaws,That it becomes frustrating to use.BirdsEye is just as bad and you have to pay extra for that.Their Gps`s work fine but coupled with BaseCamp and BirdsEye it`s not worth the money.I would look to another GPS manufacture that has User friendly software.This is my 3rd Garmin GPS and just like baseball Garmin your OUT!If I could give it less than 1 star I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded expectations This was my first hand held GPS unit, having previously relied on cell phone apps. The cell phone apps quickly kill my battery AND they struggle to stay synced with a satellite in areas I hunt. This GPS performed far beyond what I hoped for. It is compact, but with a screen large enough to be useable. It never lost its position and it lasted more than 24 hours on 1 pair of batteries. After playing with it the first day to learn the controls I was able to use it to mark our stand locations as a friend and I hunted a special draw archery hunt in an area neither one of us had ever been. I even used the map I downloaded for free to plot a successful change to my stand location. This GPS just might become my favorite piece of hunting gear,(after my Hoyt). October 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by !st GPS Bought this to go hunting with. Will be in swamp area. This will do more than needed, but the extra features are nice to have. Turn it on, place in pocket, it does the rest. Mark your starting point, you can customize to show your tracks on the journey or not. You can name your waypoints and use it as a compass I downloaded the topo map from the website to a micro card, for the extra street maps and topo coverage. I can carry it in pocket on my motorcycle when traveling. Good battery life. Only drawback is you need to download full manual from website. April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy with Etrex Ordered the Garmin Etrex 20, Bass Pro had the best price I found online, and they delivered it pretty quickly. I had no experience with GPS, but after exerting a little effort the Etrex 20 is fairly straightforward and easy to use. April 8, 2013

I don't know about your states BUT, I did a little Google research and in less than an hour, I had an excellent topo of my state installed, free. I think I tried the Geocacheing web sites for info,they had a LOT of help available online.

A: 
The basemap is very basic so there will be limited detail on any kind of park perimeters. You will probably want a TOPO map for more detail. Bird's eye does not come with the device.

Very close, depending on how you have the zoom set. The more you zoom in, the tighter the field of view on the screen is. It can bring you within feet of where you started. Hope this helps.

A: 
The waypoint will likely be within 30 feet. With this unit you can use waypoint averaging to help you achieve the most accurate position possible. I've included links to information directly from Garmin below.

I believe you can check the Garmin website for some nautical maps. I know they have some available. I believe if you select a starting waypoint, you can fine your way back. Also, this unit does have the compass feature on it. Hope this helps.

It is easy to use. The speed will effect what you see as your location. The slower you go, the slower the image moves, likewise when you speed up. Same as your GPS does in the vehicle.

A: 
Yes, by setting a waypoint and changing its coordinates to the coordinates you desire, the waypoint will be changed to your destination instead of your current location. You can then select the waypoint and navigate to it.

I just poked around my Etrex Venture HC and went to
Main Menu (click on the top button on the right, as you look at the screen, until you scroll around to Main Menu)
Setup
System
The screen shows a list of System Setup options.
Scroll to highlight the Text Language window.
Click on it and a list of languages opens up.
Scroll to English (if necessary to scroll) and click on that.

That should do it.
