Great for travel on foot and storing waypoints, rubber edge could have been better.

Michael D. Martin, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I've had it for years and it's still kicking. I've since upgraded, but I wish the feature where I can see things like gas stations and restaurants at exits on the interstate was available on the 60Csx!

Nice unit for a casual user

Pennsylvania Paul, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an earlier, B & W, fixed-memory eTrex that I'd had for years when it stopped functioning reliably (the 'joystick' button became unresponsive). This is an older unit, but I'm a casual user.

eTrex Good for the Basics of Trailriding

E. Barbara, Amazon
10 July 2011
  • Summary: The Garmin eTrex Legend HCx is my first GPS. I wanted one for trail riding my mule in the state parks. I also purchased the microSD card the US Trails (@ $10) and the US TOPO for the Great Lakes Area (@ $120). The satellite reception is great on this unit, no matter how dense the forest cover.

I've been messing with my eTrex for about 2 years.

  • Excerpt: I've been messing with my eTrex for about 2 years. Good points: The Legend HCx seems to be waterproof, seems to be pretty rugged, can hold a MicroSD chip to store maps, has a color screen, and works well in the outdoors.

  • Summary: Synchs fast, compatible with online geocache websites, small yet easy to read... I like it alot... and it's saved my bacon 3 times now twice deep in the city and once deep in the hills.

Smart buy for a quality product

John Turecki, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: This was my first time buying a GPS and I bought the eTrex Legend HCx after trying out two other models and returning them. The Magellen Xplorist 210 and the eTrex Legend (non HCx). At first I found the Garmin models to be a bit awkward in that the buttons and joystick are located above the display.

Nice personal gps, but useless w/o added maps

Occupant, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought one of these expecting it to be useable out of the box. After all, the various much less expensive, Nuvi models all come with excellent street maps of high detail. Well, dream on, buddy boy. This thing comes with only the most rudimentary map of very gross detail (i.e., none).

I can't put this thing down!

J. Blais, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I use my Garmin eTrex Legend HCx almost on a daily basis. It's true what people say about the base maps; they're not really good for getting around. With that said, this thing comes alive when you install the City Navigator Maps.

Garmin HCx

Sundance, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I was a little disappointed when I first tried the GPS because the toggle and select button on the front required excessive pressure to make it work. But after using it on a mountain hike it began to work better.

Not the Vista

W. Ellenburg, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: Interesting story ... but I'll keep it short. I bought an E-Trex Vista Hcx back in March, but lost it on my very first kayaking trip in September! Well, I liked it so much, I ordered another one ... very pleased that I was able to save $40 on the one I purchased in March.
