Summary: Good GPS which provides a good communication with the PC, the brightness is excellent for day and night. The eTrex 20 is accurate to about 1 foot. The interface is nice but the card supplied with the GPS is not accurate enough with its excessive scale.
Good value if you can find a used one. Cost a lot less than new one.

Summary: I wanted a newer GPS with color display and ability to connect to a PC. eTrex Vista C works for me. Bought used on on e-Bay at a great price and am totally satisfied with the GPS and it's features.
Summary: Garmin products are easy to use and very accurate. However, down loadable maps are costly and are not user friendly to download. GPS manufactures better start thinking about providing free maps due to the competion with smart phones.
Summary: Considering I got this thing for $70 shipped it was a steal. The only problem I have with it is the inability to store data on an external SD card. Other than that this is a great hiking and geocaching GPS. Battery life is amazing, even with the backlight on. Highly recommend this GPS.
Summary: This is a great unit for the price, it does everything and more that I ask of it. It is not a high sensitivity receiver therefore it loses contact under trees. If I wanted the best, I would have to pay for it and this is for play...
Summary: This is a great little GPS with full color if you don't want extra memory cards or need more than the supplied 24mg that is in it. Satellite acquisition is fast after your initial setup has been done and there are more features on this unit than most people will ever access or need. There isn't anything you can't do on the VISTA that you can do on more expensive units and customer service is great if you need it.
Summary: I have one the first Garmin eTrex black and white GPS units. A true "entry level" GPS unit. Good unit but not a lot of bells and whistles. I have done a ROM upgrade but there is not very much memory. The color is so much better than the older B&W units. There is something about color displays that make it far more "real". One thing I really love about it is the way the sky view of the land and ocean. If it is daylight the ground is yellow and the water is blue.
