VISTA CX

T. BROOKS, Amazon
27 December 2007
  • Summary: Vista CX is a very good gps with many nice features. I rate it with 4 stars because it does not keep a good signal in deep woods. Other than that it is perfect. I sent it back for the Vista HCX.

  • Summary: Put it in the shopping cart. Solid performance, easy to carry, decent battery life. The screen could be a bit bigger. I used it for hiking, camping and fishing and it did well in all those uses.

Great for geo-caching, but additional software and memory for street navigating

F. Conrad, Amazon
27 December 2007
  • Summary: This works excellent for geo-caching. With the built-in compass and excellent satellite reception, it almost feels like you're cheating. Street navigation is excellent with purchase of additional software. The altimeter works very well for tracking vertical profiles.

  • 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.

Rugged and handy, but idiosynchratic

T. Dokland, Amazon
5 August 2007
  • Summary: I have used this unit a lot over the last two years, both for geocaching and for driving and have generally found it very good. It is certainly a handy and rugged unit. However, the screen is quite small and the enter button is awkward to operate, especially for right-handed people, as it is located...

Nice

OzHeart, Amazon
5 August 2007
  • Summary: Finally entered the GPS field by buying this (Vista Cx) and a Nuvi 350. Nuvi 350 is dedicated for car navigation while this Vista Cx is for all round GPS play and fun. I firstly very much like how solid and compact this unit is.

Very good receiver, but a few facilities are lacking

VSOP, Amazon
5 August 2007
  • Summary: I don't have any complaint in terms of the receiver itself. It works just fine, quickly finding the satellites. The screen is bright, easy to read, buttons are well placed, navigation along menus and functions is OK. I haven't used it on long trips, but battery life seems to be more than adequate.

Worth your money

Senis, Amazon
4 August 2007
  • 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.

I took this to the Geographic North Pole

Jeffrey C. Dyrek, Amazon
4 August 2007
  • Summary: I used this GPS system on my second and third expeditions to the North Pole. It is interesting that on the actual Geographic North Pole it almost instantly locked onto twelve satellites. As I walked just a couple of feet, it would show a very accurate distance of my movement.
