Summary: I purchased this for geocaching. When I tried connecting to a computer it just wouldn't work. Tried several machines. Same result. So I just sent it back to Amazon. I have experience with another Garmin unit and loved it so I'll try getting another model. Maybe this was just a lemon.
Summary: I received the GPS sooner than estimated and it has performed up to my expectations. It powers up quickly and after using it for over a month it has been accurate over the trails in both distance and elevations. I definitely recommend it.
Summary: The Garmin eTrex Vista CX Color handheld works great EXCEPT that it will not power on without taking the batteries in and out each time you turn it on. It was a reburbished one with a year's warranty from Garmin. Seller told us to return it to Garmin.
Summary: My Garmin Vista continues to amaze me with the different ways we find to use it. As I become more familiar with its functions I see how useful it really is- for fun and for information. Thanks for a great product.

Excerpt: This GPS unit is full of features, moderately expandable, and not very sensitive. What it doesn't lack is features: nice color screen, compass, altimeter, waterproof, and separately purchased 2GB memory card. The Vista Cx is expandable with a microSD memory card.
Summary: The Vista CX is a very nice GPS with great features EXCEPT the map software is not Mac OS compatable. You cannot upload maps or use any features which benfit from creation on computer based detailed maps. You can purchase the Garmin memory cards with map info and then establish waypoints etc.
Summary: This is my first GPS unit. I bought it for cycling and geocaching since Garmin Edge 305 cannot do both. Pros: easy to read color display, micro-SD card for map data storage, compact rugged design, AA batteries holds enough to complete 200K ride, compass and altimeter.
Summary: Glad that they finally give more memoryt o these hand held units and work better then my IQUE3 from Garmin and now i can hvae it skiing with me and know how much i have skiied...highly recommended
