Summary: This review is specific to the Garmin Etrex Legend H model. I've known about Geocaching for years, but wanted to finally start doing it. Bought this unit because I really just needed an inexpensive and simple GPS unit that would point me to a specific site where the Geocache is hidden.
Summary: I've owned three of these over the space of about 10 years. When they first came out I paid almost $300 and the latest one was about $125. I've used them extensively as a pedestrian and in a vehicle. I carried one literally around the world.
Summary: Had 2 magellan's give up on me so im trying a Garmin. so far its working great it keeps track of moving miles and speed. i am using this GPS for keeping track of miles ridden on my bicycle rides and to find places on ATV trips. i also use it for geocaching too.
Summary: I bought this GPS to take it to my bike rides in the mountains. This one outperforms a previous model that I had in the sense that it does not lose the satellite signals. Also, it is very robust, since I always carry it on the handle bar of the bicycle and it stands all of that vibration during the...
Summary: I've had one of these for several years. Use for hiking. Works really well. I use in conjunction with my trail map. Basically what I do it have the GPS draw a line as I hike, then I look at my trail map (which has a bold line showing the trail) and this helps me keep up with where I am on the trail.
Summary: Holy cow, the manual. You couldn't read anything less helpful in the world. That being said... I used to the Garmin primarily for Geocaching. I liked the feature that I was able to save cache details in the GPS logs on my computer, and find them when I was out hiking around. It is black and white.
Summary: I am considering returning this unit to Amazon because it does not appear to have any marine navigation aids in the base map for Hawaii at least. The description of the product said it included US nav aids both in the summary and in the "from the manufacturer" section.

Summary: love this gps!! i work in the oil field and am constantly needing reliable g.p.s. coordinates for various reasons and this fits the bill. For me, its the small amount of space it occupies that makes this my favorite.
Summary: I had an older Legend for many years. It finally gave up the ghost so I bought this one. This is faster loading and finding the satelites. I use it for hiking, bike riding etc. Very nice unit..
