    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Garmin eTrex 30 Topo GPS Bundle is rated 2.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed with this unit. I ordered this device and paid extra for the topo map package. Upon opening the device I found it to be laggy and the topo maps I paid so much extra for were WAY out of date. There was no free update on the Garmin website. The device was slow and it took a long time to acquire a lock after boot up. I will just be saving up for a better unit even if it costs me double. This one didn't seem worth it. If your life or outdoor experience depends on this device then save yourself the trouble and take a pass on this unit.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Distance travelled way off On two different hikes where I knew the distance travelled, this unit was WAY off. I walked about 4.5 miles yesterday and the unit reported I had gone 7.5 miles. On another hike, the actual distance to the turnaround point was 2.44 miles, actual elevation gain 1,722 ft. The unit reported 7 miles and 880 ft gained. Other times, it was dead accurate. Time to take it back to REI.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, accurate, and fun Garmin's eTrex 30 is great for all-day tracking and route-finding, includes a barometric altimeter, and has many uses with the BaseCamp software�??including standard GPX data import and export. After investigating GPS apps for a smartphone, I decided to go with a dedicated GPS device. One problem with phone apps is the battery drain when GPS tracking is on. I'd rather have the phone available for other uses on a day's outing. The bicycle clamp accessory worked well; the eTrex 30 is large enough to easily use, but not ungainly when mounted on the bicycle handlebars. The eTrex 30 is much more useful than the smaller devices that are usable only on a bicycle. I tracked a ride along the Centennial bike trail (a former railroad bed). The trail looks flat, but a plot of the track reveals a steady elevation gain out of Snohomish and then a drop down toward Marysville. The vertical scale, of course, is highly exaggerated in the attached image. The plot should be a mirror image (riding up the trail and then back along the same route), but shows some minor discrepancies. The calibrated altimeter should be accurate to about ±10 ft., but the highest point shows a greater difference. That's probably due to the morning being cloudy and cool, with slightly higher air pressure than the afternoon, when the sun had warmed the surface and hence the air. It was fun to see the track and altitude plot. Make sure that you get the current version of the topi map. Garmin just came out with an update, and does not provide updates to previous versions of the 100K TOPO. A separate micro-SD chip is also useful to download third-party GPS data (for example, search for free GPS maps). Before you use the eTrex 30, make sure that you update the firmware from Garmin. You also have to download the BaseCamp software.
