Mac Users Beware

Wally, JK, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • 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.

Might not be the best GPS system

AGW, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: Product worked fine and was relatively straightforward to setup. Features work as advertised although initial time required to lock onto satellites seems overly long. My primary issue is with the additional maps that are required - you need to buy both topographic and road maps [at about $100 a pop]...

The UI makes a good GPS painful to use

Rolland Waters, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: If all you want is a GPS, sure it works fine, even with reasonably heavy tree cover. I've only seen one glaring track error, on a recent ride out and back along a shoreline trail, where two miles of one leg is shown a few hundred yards out into the lake.

Frustrating Item

F.B., Amazon
18 September 2006
  • Summary: The first Vista Cx I purchased died after only 3 days of use. I returned it to Amazon who immediately and painlessly replaced it. The second unit lasted for 4 days until I fell waist deep into a stream with the unit in my pocket.
