Furthermore, the eTrex 32x has been designed for use in all weather conditions and is waterproof to IPX7 standards. It is also built for harsh terrains with a tough design to withstand dust, dirt, humidity, etc.

The Garmin eTrex 32x also features a 3-axis, tilt-compensating electronic compass and barometric altimeter which uses changes in pressure to pinpoint your altitude and predict changing weather conditions. This is ideal when planning an outdoor journey, trip or adventure as it enables you to plan for or react to changing weather conditions along your route.

TopoActive Europe maps are preloaded to the Garmin eTrex 32x internally memory. TopoActive Europe maps provide routable roads, waterways and trails, making the Garmin eTrex 32x perfect for quad bikes, bicycles, boats or hiking.

The Garmin eTrex 32x has an internal memory of 8GB, this can be further expanded using optional Garmin maps on microSD cards. Additional Garmin map series on microSD card that are compatible with the Garmin eTrex 32x include BlueChart g3 maps for use on a boat and fishing, TOPO maps for exploring off-road and country walks and bike trails and City Navigator road maps for use when navigating whilst driving or road cycling.

Share and receive data wirelessly e.g. your routes/waypoints with your friends and family with other compatible ANT+ enabled Garmin handheld devices using the Garmin eTrex 32x's ANT+ connectivity. The Garmin eTrex 32x ANT+ connectivity also enables you to connect wirelessly to two compatible Garmin eTrex 32x accessories, these are the Garmin tempe (temperature sensor) and HRM Dual (heart rate monitor).

The Garmin eTrex 32x is touch button operated, unlike other premium Garmin handheld models it doesn't feature touchscreen control. Garmin eTrex 32x uses buttons on the side of the unit to toggle through the menu, go back, adjust the brightness, etc. A Thumb Stick controller on the front of the Garmin eTrex 32x (above the screen) enables you to easily move directionally to scroll or highlight an item on the screen. If you would prefer a Garmin handheld device with a touchscreen display then we would recommend either the Garmin eTrex Touch 35 or for a handheld with a larger screen, the 5-inch touchscreen of the Garmin Montana 700 would make the perfect purchase.
