    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 10 GPS is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best GPS for map/chart & compass users The eTrex 10 has the same GPS receiver as the costly 20 and 30, without maps. If you can read the B&W screen, the 10 is perfect. Its reliable, tough, and waterproof. Lithium AAs, 60+ hrs and not exhaust the batteries, GPS+WAAS+GLONASS on. With NiMH rechargeables, 33 hrs, 41 hours with GPS ON only. B&W screen is great in bright sun, backlit OK in darkness, color versions hard to see in sunlight but best when backlit. You can rearrange menus to suit for fastest use. GLONASS ON locks faster in canyons and cities, and realizes best accuracy, 6', when GPS only struggles. I use only tracking and backtracking, marking waypoints, generate UTM/UPS grid references for map & compass; you can set most any map datum known even non-USA maps. I do all housekeeping on PC with BaseCamp, links without bugs, then easy port to Google Maps for detailed terrain & track analysis: confirm distances, time, etc., the 10 reports. Button+ joystick good for gloved, wet or dirty hands. Wash unit clean but makes cumbersome to set routes or ID tracks, also small screen very cramped; best to set routes via PC, only use eTrex interface for emergency. On eTrex 20, 1:24K topo maps not enough detail versus paper map or large tablet map. Why pay $100+ for Garmin maps or struggle installing free raster maps when viewing window only size of business card? Free maps slow to scroll, slower still to zoom in. I think eTrex line too small for maps. Main con is more features than full manual details. Took 1 week of study before used in the field. Dropped many times into dirt and 3' of water to test toughness. Joystick can activate unit if place in pocket, best to use carabiner clip, belt clip breaks at hinge with rough use or age. Over 200 hrs of field use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good little device I use this for hiking and backpacking. It took a few trips to REALLY figure this thing out because there are no detailed instructions, but I found it easy to learn. So far every trail I have used this I know very well so i mostly use the device for stats like speed, distance, elevation and stuff like that which i like knowing, especially while backpacking. It can be a little slow at times but not often. It seems to get really good battery life. I've been using it a lot and have only had to change the batteris once. Be warned, if your looking for something to use in place of a map and compass, this is not it. It works best being used alongside a map and compass.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good For Novices I don't know if its because this is my first GPS or if it's really this hard to get used to but I find it really confusing. I've gotten the ins and outs to a point. It is very accurate, and is able to get Geocaching maps but no extra maps beyond that. Over all its good for beginners imo

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful product the most difficult thing I have ever tried to use. Completely confusing. I tested it out in an area which I knew very well. When using the breadcrumbs/backtrack feature, it tried to lead me back the wrong way.!! This is a good thing, thank goodness I already knew for sure which way to go, I would still be out there walking if relying on this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's all greek to me! If I spend good money on a product the instructions should be clear and total enough that I could learn to use the device myself by following step by step instructions. The instructions included were so minimal that a class is required. More money! There should be more written info included or a website to visit to teach ourselves how to use it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but complicated. Being from the non-tech generation, this unit is too difficult for me to figure out on my own. I'm constantly having to ask for help.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from way better than the venture hc others have said that it's hard to use and I couldn't disagree more. I got this as a replacment for a Garmin Venture hc and it's so much better. I had the Venture for years and never really figured it out while I had this out of the box, loaded a .gpx track on it, mounted it on my bike and was riding in half and hour. it's simple enough to use the different functions while riding and took a solid hit when I end-o-ed my bike. It's also easy to get your tracks off of to review on the computer or strava

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problems ? just call Garmin Any problems with instructions or usage are resolved readily by calling Garmin and you'll find a thorough knowledgeable and friendly understandable human. Apparently it is actually part of their plan - there are so many features to describe that each individual user would get lost in the details of features they aren't interested in if a complete instruction manual was part of the package. A 50 page still insufficient .pdf instruction manual is available for download. All I wanted was what theForerunner 10 and Edge 10 has - which is distance and time reporting followed up by being able to review a topo map of one's epic. Because I do long ski tours, trail hike/runs and canoe and kayak trips I wanted the 25 hour battery life with the option of carrying extra batteries for a multi-day trip. The extra device weight and bulk is not a problem for me. After talking to Garmin BEFORE buying the eTrex I found I was able to MANUALLY Upload my tracks to the Garmin Connect website which I prefer to the Base Camp software which the eTrex is more directly compatible with. And with all Garmin Devices you can also plug your tracks into Google Earth to view !
