Garmin eTrex Legend HCx review

 

One of Garmin's newer eTrex H-series receivers, the Legend HCx updates the very popular Legend Cx. The “H” stands for high-sensitivity chipset, to ensure great satellite reception under canopy and in other situations where you have a limited view of...

I've had a chance to try out the Garmin eTrex Legend HCx recently. This is my first extended experience with an eTrex model since I purchased my first GPS — an eTrex Venture — many years ago.

Garmin eTrex Legend Cx Review

 

The Garmin eTrex Legend Cx updates the popular Legend C model by adding a micro-SD card slot for expandable memory (hence the "x"). This is a great upgrade, since the Legend C's 24 MB of internal memory was almost too small to effectively utilize City...

Garmin eTrex Legend HCx

 

The eTrex Legend HCx is a pretty safe bet if you are not too concerned about having an electronic compass and barometric altimeter. While these features will be missed by some people, this unit compares well to many GPS systems in many ways and has a...

This product has a reputation for ruggedness

Lack of barometric altimeter may be a drawback for some

This is an economical GPS unit well suited for many outdoor activities.

Great all-around GPS unit

 

Easy to use, lots of features, high sensitivity, micros SD storage, color

Battery life is a little low

Consumer review by: paoconnell (cnet.com)

Versatile--almost too versatile.

 

This is my first GPS, so I like it, but the manuals don't help much.

Basic navigation is easy. I figured out where we were on a hiking trip last weekend without a manual. The Cx means the Legend HCx can get signals even under trees

Attempt to be everything to everyone, which can be confusing. 7 main screens with two of those screens full of menu icons. Practice will be needed to understand this GPS. Manuals are sketchy

Consumer review by: (cnet.com)

Works well, but documentation is dreadful

 

The unit works well and may be more than adequate for geocaching, but for general use in the car or for walking it leaves much to be desired.

Good sensitivity, reasonably easy to use

Too expensive for what you get, miserable documentation, almost deceptive packaging

Product Specifications

Deep foliage, nor canyons phase the rugged eTrex Legend HCx. Its high-sensitivity receiver holds a GPS signal in the toughest environments. Similar to the Legend Cx, this handheld navigator also has a bright color screen, microSD card slot and automatic routing for wherever adventure takes you. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver, eTrex Legend HCx locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear - whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Legend HCx to help you find your way when you need it the most. Adding maps is easier than ever with Legend HCx's microSD card slot. Conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD cards with MapSource data for your land and sea excursions. Just insert a MapSource card with detailed street maps, and Legend HCx provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet. Like the rest of the eTrex series, Legend HCx is lightweight and compact - the perfect size for all your travels.
