Garmin eTrex Legend HCx Portable Navigator

 

I don't use it for route calculations because there are no road maps where I go. So I just rated that feature as good, assuming that it probably is at least worth that rating.

long battery life, good reception, all the features I need, small enough to go in my pocket when jogging. Software is good too

Rubber waterproof strip can come unglued

Overall very pleased with the Garmin Vista HCX, picks up satilites quickly, good battery life, nice screen, easy to use, durable,easy to carry around and accurate. Great over all unit for the price wish I would have bought this one first over the 76...

Size of unit much nicer size then the 76 series. Screen size and clarity excellent, durable, accuracy good, excellent all around unit feild and navigation

Need to buy City Navigator about $100.00 for use turn by turn and with all GPS do not work well indoors

So far, so good. We will have to put in some effort to learn all of the functions. But, again, this is our first GPS unit. A novice could easily figure it all out.

This works well - we are beginners at using the GPS systems and were able to figure it out enough to function through our first three geocache episodes

Backlight doesn't stay on long enough, however, I think there is a setting for it. Just need to research

My first GPS, and I'm very happy with it! I would recommend getting a case that protects the toggle button.

Acquires signal quickly. Doesn't lose signal under heavy tree cover. Easy to use. Good battery life

Toggle nob is very touchy, must be careful not to touch it accidentally, especially if it's turned on in your pocket

Big screen, easy one-handed use. Easy to navigate through menus

It was not specified, until after I bought it, that a microSD chip would be required to download any map showing anything except major highways. In addition, the user manual did not provide detailed instructions for a first time gps user like me

Great product.

Cost, battery life, durable, reliable

backlight will not stay lit even after setting it to, it would be helpful to display more waypoints and geocaches
