Summary: I really enjoy the GPS I used it a lot during our hunting season. I do need more practice with this new unit but I give it a AAAA+++++++ for over all features.I bought my first legend about 8 years ago this one is even better.
Summary: I purchased this for geocaching, and it works really well! Very accurate and easy to use. Didn't have to read the instructions to field test it the first time. Small and light weight. Perfect for sticking in your pocket and hiking with!
Summary: purchased this gps to geocache...excellent item..has all the features we were looking for..great color screen..very happy with this gps...only problem I had was initially using it to go from one cache to another...once I figured that out it was a joy to use...good price..
Summary: The eTrex Legend HCx is a great and handy device. I have also acquired an inland lakes map micro CD which enhances my use of the Legend for boating . . . which is the primary reason I purchased it. Love the color display!
Summary: This is my second Garmin hand-held used primarily for Geocacheing. It will give you turn-by-turn driving directions to get you close, and then you can easily change between the locater and compass views to close in on the cache. We tested it out in a heavy snowstorm (dense clouds) and still found the cache without any major problems. Sensitivity and accuracy are greatly diminished under such conditions (as can be expected), but a lesser GPS would be useless.
Summary: Excellent unit for the money! I bought this gps for hunting and so far I am very impressed! The only set back is that it will occasionally lose reception under thick cover and will not work very well in a vehicle or inside your home. I would not recommend this unit to someone who plans on using it as their sole means of navigation. If you only use the bearing pointer on this unit you will get lost. It does not calculate heading info based on magnetic north.
Summary: I bought this GPS unit for geocaching. It is rugged enough that I can hand it to my seven year old daughter to use without worry. The color screen is nice, the battery life is great. There are a few small things about it that annoy me. 1) The is no magnetic compass so the compass in the unit is only accurate when moving. When just standing still it directs you in random directions. 2) The maps on this unit are lacking.
