Garmin eTrex Vista CX

Outbackwack, Amazon
26 February 2008
  • Summary: This is the 4th Garmin GPS I bought - GPS 2, GPS 5, Nuvi 660 and now the Vista CX. I bought the Vista CX to replace my GPS 5 primarily for mapping my local parks via mountain biking so I could plan trips, track mileages and also to get into geocaching.

Not so great experience

Rudy Schlaf, Amazon
4 August 2007
  • Summary: While this is a pretty useful device for hiking, running, sailing etc...it has several issues. One is, that the preinstalled map only shows high and freeways. If one wants more detail, Garmin will ask you to plunck down another ~$90 for US coverage. If you want Europe, it costs you again.

don't buy the Vista Cx for its barometric altimeter

Henry Truebe, Amazon
17 February 2007
  • Summary: When GPS were first introduced we used to joke about the inaccuracy of their satellite determined elevations. I bought the Vista Cx because I thought the built-in barometric altimeter would reduce the problem with satellite determined elevations - it does not.

Input Buttons

Richard C. Drewelow, Amazon
31 August 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this for biking and hiking. So far, I have only used it while biking. The input buttons are mainly on the sides of the unit (so there is more space for the screen on the front). Most of the buttons have more than one function.

Excellent mapping GPS, but altimeter and compass issues

LeftCoastRichard, Amazon
18 July 2006
  • Summary: My Vista Cx is an excellent GPS. Satellites are quickly acquired and WAAS enhancement works reliably. The unit is sturdy and battery life is much better than I expected. The downside seems to be documentation. Documentation is minimal and occasionally incorrect.

Nice unit but has battery problems

Gadgeteer, Amazon
23 April 2006
  • Summary: The Garmin ETrex Vista/CX is a very nice handheld GPS unit. I like it a lot. However, it has battery problems. Within a month of getting the unit-- and not using it in any capacity other than simply turning it on and driving places in my car, it stopped being able to operate from batteries.

Garmin Vista HCx es mejor que el vista Cx

JULFORTUNATO, MercadoLibre
27 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Es un buen equipo, pero me gustaria que el manual cuente con mayor informacion tecnica para mejorar el rango de error en las mediciones. Por ahÍ leí que la presicion tiene que ver con la fecha. A lo mejor podrian recomendarme un equipo que cumpla con mis espectativas. saludos
  • Pros: tiene mayor presicion, se conecta mas rapido, no pierde conexion cuando estas en el auto., El altimetro esta mejorado( aunque no lo prove mucho)
  • Cons: La tecla novi dejo de tener todas las funciones que tiene el Cx (me parece que es mejor el Cx), La misma medicion tomando referencia de puntos fijados con un dia de diferencia difieren hasta en 10 m. (problemas del equipo?).

GPS ist jetzt immer dabei

lutz.maertens, Ciao
7 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Leider muss ich meiner Produktberwertung 2 Sterne abziehen, da sich bei längerem Gebrauch Mängel eingestellt haben, siehe Bericht weiter unten: Um es vorweg zu nehmen, dabei blieb es nicht. Ich gab 344,00 Euro für ein wesentlich leistungsfähigeres Gerät aus, den Garmin Etrex Vista C.
  • Pros: nie wieder verlaufen
  • Cons: Preis für Kartenmaterial, Verarbeitung
