Great handheld.

David W. Marshall Jr., Amazon
22 June 2015
  • Summary: This handheld unit is great! I upgraded from the Cx model to this HCx when the last one died. I liked the old one so much, I wanted to get something as close to it as possible. This one picks up much faster and stronger than the old one.

Stands the test of time

TX_4X4, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this about 4 years ago for geocaching and it still works great. My son was 10 when I got it for him, so it is very easy to use. I did need to purchase some maps from Garmin which was an additional cost, but well worth it.

Getting lost

Outstanding value

Charles W. Finn, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: I replaced an "ancient" eTrex Legend with this model and couldn't be happier. MUCH better sensitivity, USB vs RS-232 link, supports newest Garmin maps, fits my original eTrex Legend bike mount. If you can still find one (it is, sadly, discontinued by Garmin, grrr), snap it up.

Worth every cent to not get lost

NWwaterfowler, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: Have been using this here in the NW since I purchased it. It's very easy to use, nice large, clear screen. Have used it all over the NW in areas that I hunt/backpack. Even in full canopy cover I have never had an issue with getting full satellite signals.

Great features

River girl, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday and he just loves it. He's a real gadget guy anyway and he's really enjoying all the great features that this GPS offers. It's a great portable GPS, especially for the price. I would highly reccomend this product.

Buy. Buy. Buy.

Andy Wolf ""Die Living"", Amazon
24 December 2011
  • 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.

Here's a 4GB micro card that works with Legend CX & HCX

Bill King, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: I have the Legend CX which is great, the same as the HCX except the CX does not have the highgrade receiver (less sensitive than the HCX). By the way the CX has slightly longer battery life than the HCX, but the HCX is very good on batts too.

Good for biking

T. Allen, Amazon
17 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this unit to replace an older eTrex Legend model that I mount on my bicycle handle bar. As noted by other reviewers the HCx unit has enhanced sensitivity and very long battery life. My rechargeable AA's last at least 5 times longer than in the old unit.
