Awesome product and a great value!

  • Summary: Very easy to use. This is my first gps for geocaching. I also found someone on ebay selling the sd card for my area at less than half the price of a new one. Ebay is getting me equipped for summer adventure at an unbelievably low price.

  • Summary: I have a 10 year old etrex garmin. I was always loosing the signal. This Legend HCx stays hoked up. It is great. I loaded the topo map from my computer onto the disc of the areas I hunt in and that makes it fun to navigate.

I owned an old Etrex Legend (gen 1?) that I wasn't happy with for the above

Great Navigator

Jerry, Amazon

  • Summary: I know that the eTrex has been around for awhile and does not require my review but I do like this GPS unit! I have had others but this one is small and yet easy to use and read. I carry it with me everywhere! I just throw it in my bag, just in case. I found the expense consistent with an inexpensive yet useful GPS.

A good unit without all of the bells and whistles.

  • Summary: This is my first GPS hand held unit. I have a Garmin 5000 for my vehicle that I like very much. This etrex does not have a real compass or some other bells and whistles built in but functions very well for what it is intended to do. It is very sensitive to movement and can read the satellites even under heavy foliage which is good.

A little clunky, but it works very nicely

A. Mendez, Amazon

  • Summary: Satisfied, that's my verdict on the Legend HCx. Worth the price. The interface is a bit clunky, since everything has to be input using the little joystick on the front, but aside from that... no complaints. It locks onto satellites pretty fast, navigation works great (if you've loaded routable maps), and the display is readable all the time. I've used the navigation function outside the US in Central America, with no problems.

Buy. Buy. Buy.

  • Summary: This thing is Amazing. Perfect size, simple to use and very economical. I got it for $100.00 Add a 4gb Micro SD Card and download free maps (Road and Topo), and you have a fine Adventure GPS. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY GARMIN MAPS. JUST DOWNLOAD BASE CAMP (By Garmin), and then look up "Free Garmin E trex maps" on Google. Seriously. I just downloaded a ton of maps for my region, Topo, Marine and Street. I even tested the thing on my latest expedition.

Great Little GPS

Kevin Lemoi, Amazon
9 December 2011
  • Summary: This is a great little GPS. It fits in the palm of the hand and has excellent reception in dense tree cover. My family has several of these for geocaching and we just love them! I have the more expensive Garmin 62 and the legend HCx is every bit as accurate as my more expensive unit. I gave this device 4 of 5 stars because it does not have the paperless geocaching option that the 62 does... if it did it would be a 5+ and I would have bought this unit rather than the 62.
