Summary: Over the years, my husband has used the Garmin Etrex Legend A LOT but it has a design flaw that irritated the heck out of him. My husband used it when he went horseback riding in the back country where there are no trails to follow. He literally logged hundreds of miles with it.
Summary: I purchased two of these several years ago when they first were introduced -- don't remember when that was but it was a LONG time ago. I used then for hiking, keeping track of my mileage while running, and the like.
Summary: OK, first the cons: It is an older design. It's not color. It doesn't have scads of memory in which to upload custom maps. On paper, this is an obsolete receiver. Or is it? Because quite frankly, when it comes to having a sturdy and reliable receiver - it's extremely hard to beat this little guy.
