I bought an e trex last year and like it.  A friend bought one today and it has moon phases and other neat options on it.  It has project waypoints as well.  Is this the new/improved e trex and can you update the older versions or do you have to buy a new one?  I checked around and can't find one that has the options his had  or they did not list them on the web sites I looked at.  Anybody know?

Strutter,

There's a couple different models of eTrex GPS Units, each with a different level of capabilities.  Garmin does make available updated versions of the software for the different eTrex units but eTrex Legend software will not work with a different model unit.  The different models range in price from about $99 to $300 (I think).  Check out the different models and options at Garmin's webpage.  www.garmin.com

Have a good holiday.

You've got the basic yellow one and he's got the camo one. You can download the latest firmware for YOUR unit and if you have access to a PC cable you can update your unit. Unfortunately, I don't think the camo firmware will work in the yellow unit.  Has anyone tried this??? I have the yellow one, too, and would LOVE to have the solunar tables in it.
