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

  • Summary: Loads GPX files with Apple computers. Outstanding battery life, even with rechargable batteries. Big numbers screen, map display, color screen are nicer features.

Great Navigator

  • 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

  • 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.

Great Little GPS

Kevin Lemoi, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: If you are looking for a plain jane, easy to use GPS for hiking, hunting, fishing, etc...
  • Pros: Simple to use. Nice size and weight for hiking, fishing, and hunting.
  • Cons: Manual is lacking. Menu options of the previous version was better.

Very good GPS. The color display is great.

  • Summary: The color display is great for outdoor use. It is easily viewed while wearing polarized sunglasses, which cannot be said of any black and white display. The unit picks up well and has not lost reception under thick mature hardwood canopy. I have not lost signal anywhere yet. I bought this unit for use while hunting and it will work well for that.
