The new eTrex series is the first to be able to detect both GPS and GLONASS satellites. GLONASS is a system developed by the Russian Federation that will be fully operational in 2012. When using GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS. Also, when using both GPS and GLONASS satellites, the receiver is capable of receiving signals from 24 satellites than using GPS alone.
