Main pages of the GARMIN etrex 10:

The images below show the display of the etrex 10 in true resolution (128x160 pixels). This does not necessarily mean that the display is shown it its true size (36x43 mm). The actual size of these images depends on the properties of your display.

Note: Even if the displays of all three models are basically of the same size, the monochrome pages of the etrex 10 appear smaller than the colored pages of the etrex 20 and 30. This is because the color display has more pixels per square inch than the monochrome display.

Many of the pages are configurable, the pictures shown are just examples. For the data fields, there is a choice of 38 different values, see selection. In addition, many pages support so called dashboards which show some pre-selected values.
