Can anyone explain to me the differences between Odometer, Trip Odometer and Current Distance on my Garmin Etrex Venture trip computer? Aren't they all the same?

Odometer is the total distance you have travelled using the unit.

The Trip Odometer is how far since the last reset

Current distance is how far to the next waypoint.

The first two are like in your car, odometer is the total distance the car has travelled, the trip counter can be reset when you like (eg, I use mine for tracking fuel consumption - gets reset at each filling)
