In the meantime you could use UK grid reference finder but make sure your finds positions are as accurate as possible....

Good one the Etrex 20.. also the more expensive 30.. I have the 20 for two years... Observe that Garmin dont come with mapsource anymore, and if you want that system it will cost extra..Personally I use Garmin basecamp that also can do most desired transformantions to other system as Google earth ectJungle wrote:Etrex 20 will allow you to load custom maps, battery life is way better than the Legend and, when the Russian system is working, allows more accurate waypoints.
Example her on a field map done with the Etrex 20..

It's accurate enough for metal detecting and a good tool.johntuff wrote:managed to get 1 on e-bay s/h garmin Etrex 12 channel,£28 need to take it out with my tom tom to see if its accurate thank you all
Don't expect sub 1 meter accuracy it's not possible without a base station and thousands of pounds.
There have been many treads on hear and I have explained why you can not before. Even though your device says it < 1 meter it's not.
Accuracy of all units is about the same if it's a smart phone (as long as it's using gps and not wifif and towers) or hand held unit's
GPS drains phone batteries very quickly so £28 for a stand alone is good you can't go wrong
Plus stand alone normally have a larger antenna (better under trees) and log on quicker
