Depends what you use it for. If you spend any time in the NZ bush, then you'd definitely benefit from an upgrade to a high-sensitivity unit. The newer eTrex (10,20,30) have an additional bonus, in that they can now use the Russian GLONASS sats as well, meaning permanently better constellations and better satellite coverage as these come online this year. And USB connectivity is much easier as you don't have to worry about special cables, or installing drivers.
But if the current eTrex is meeting your needs - absolutely no reason to upgrade
