I have a Garmin eTrex e20x. I find the device struggles to find satellites. I find the software difficult to work with. The maps seem expensive. I find the service fails to meet my expectations altogether.

I'm looking for a replacement, I use it for walking in the UK countryside, Surrey Hills, Cotswolds, Cornwall - that kind of thing. I'd like to have something with OS Explorer type maps on and has software available which is easier to work with than Garmin's Basecamp.

This seemed like a good place to find people who could recommend something which might work for me.

Thanks in advance.

I have an Etrex 20 that I've used for over 5 years for hiking, including the Pennine way and other long distance walks. I've never had problems with it finding satellites, although if you move a few hundred miles since the last fix it can take a while, otherwise it's pretty instantaneous.

I've used ViewRanger on my smart phone but find it not as convenient when I'm hiking, but you might like to see if it suits you better.
